Healthy Acadia: Farm Drop and Gleaning 

in this edition of Healthy Acadia, we learned about Farm Drop, a program that connects you directly to Blue Hill Peninsula and surrounding area producers for quality food shopping and experiences.

Customers can choose items ranging from seasonal vegetables and fruits, to local meats and dairy. All you need to do is place your order from the comforts of your home, and pick up your custom box weekly at Fairwinds Florist, at 5 Main St, Blue Hill.

FarmDrop is a community-based project that supports the local food economy, working alongside Healthy Acadia’s Gleaning Initiative, and Healthy Peninsula’s Magic Food Bus to ensure a vibrant economy and provide more fresh food to community members in need.

• Buy local produce from a farmers’ market with a simple click
