Deborah in the garden

We aim to please. If there is something you love that you haven’t been able to find locally, ask Deborah and she will try to find a way to grow it for you—-even things no sane person would attempt to grow in Maine. Looking for smaller or larger quantities than what is listed here? Just ask!

Deborah & her hybrid Prius make deliveries of both our own produce and products from other area producers. If you can’t make it to the online market pick-up site, check to see if Deborah can deliver your order to you. Send an email or call to make requests.

Rasmussen Farm, atop Gilkey Hill in Freeman Township, converted from a home garden to a market garden in 2008. We grow raspberries, wild & cultivated blueberries, a vast selection of veggies, greens, herbs, fruit, edible & cut flowers. We focus on unusual items and are attempting to hoping to offer artichokes this year. We also sell seedlings and forage for wild edibles.

We have not sought organic certification, but we avoid using chemicals in the garden and fields, even those products approved for Certified Organic growers. Instead, we try to keep crops healthy through companion planting, use of row cover, and hand removal of pests.

David Rasmussen & Deborah Chadbourne have been gardening together since 1992. Deborah is a 12th generation Maineiac who earned a BA in English and Philosophy from Wellesley College and a Master of Architecture degree from the Boston Architectural College before deciding to put her higher education to good use digging around in the dirt. David grew up as a farm boy in Iowa, escaped to academia where he earned BS, BA, MA & PhD degrees in Philosophy from the University of Chicago and launched a now more than 40 year teaching career. He bought the farm here in Maine shortly after he began teaching Philosophy at Boston College in 1967.

New in 2016!

We now have a licensed commercial kitchen! We will definitely be freezing fruits & veggies and drying herbs to sell. Hopefully we'll also be offering baked goods and prepared foods, at least when we're not too busy in the gardens.

Now available: cut-flower CSA shares. We grow plenty of sunflowers, dahlias, and a wide variety of other flowers. The CSA give you the option to get a lovely selection of whatever is flowering on a regular basis throughout the season.

Looking for something else?

If something we normally offer is sold out, it won't show up on the website, but check with Deborah. More is often available. Looking for something you don't see listed, just ask and we will try to grow it or find a grower for you.
