At Whitehill Farm in East Wilton, Maine, Amy LeBlanc produces MOFGA-certified organic seedlings, vegetables and value-add products, which she has been selling at the Farmington Farmers’ Market for over 20 years. She also sells at craft fairs and festivals; through the Western Maine Market, a local online farmer-to-consumer connection; and at the Better Living Center in Farmington. Since the Fedco Tree Sale is canceled for this year, she’ll sell her seedlings on-farm at the end of May. Call if you’re looking for seedlings. Whitehill also donates seedlings to locals who help seniors with container gardening. Amy and her husband, Mike (also her tech support guru), raised their children and cared for her parents on the farm, so growing organically seemed logical for feeding their family. Amy says about this work, “It’s a mission and a lifestyle!”
