Jordan’s Farm has been a Cape Elizabeth “family tradition” for 5 generations (and counting!). Each summer, you can count on stopping by the stand on Wells Road for fresh, farm-grown produce and flowers in abundance.
Last summer (2014), the family opened “The Farm Stand,” a year-round market in South Portland for the convenience of more families in the area. Located at 161 Ocean Street, the store is a partnership between Jordan’s Farm and Farmers’ Gate Market to bring Maine vegetables, fruits and pasture-raised meats to customers year round.
“Our goal with this year-round location is to create easy access to Maine products and a full-service butcher shop focusing on Maine grass fed beef and pasture products such as pork, chicken and lamb,” said Pam Butterfield, a member of the Jordan family. “Jordan’s Farm supplies and sources vegetables and fruits, rounded out with dairy cheeses, eggs, butter and other grocery products from Maine.”
Pam told us that the Farm Stand has done quite well and is staffed with knowledgeable people who are passionate about local food. “The Farm Stand is filling a cap in the Knightville area and people continually thank us for creating the store,” she said. “They love the products and know they’re doing their part to keep Maine farms working.”
Jordan’s Farm also offers a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program for their Cape Elizabeth location, in which customers pre-pay at a discounted price and then purchase products throughout the growing season. Pam noted, “Our CSA is SELF SELECT, which means customers make their choice of products available at our farm stand in Cape Elizabeth.” For complete details on Jordan’s Farm, visit www.JordansFarm.com.
