Eat Maine Foods!

Hello,

I wanted to let you know Jeremy has begun scallop fishing.  He is
harvesting about lbs of Atlantic Sea Scallops a day from Casco
Bay.  He will be fishing for scallops until January 31rst, weather
permitting and then we will be heading north to make maple syrup. 
We will have Fresh Atlantic Sea Scallops for sale until then.  We
also have Frozen Fresh Sea Scallops for sale as well. Our customers
and ourselves find that there is no difference in taste.  Frozen
scallops can last for a year also.   The taste of our local Atlantic
Sea Scallops is fresh and spectacular and much different from
grocery store quality, where the stock is often
over a week old due to delivering from federal waters.  Due to
restrictions placed there are less and less fishermen from Maine
going so the prices in the grocery stores reflect this loss.  But,
we would like to sell them to you for a very reasonable price.

Also, his scallops have been referred by wholesale buyers in Portland
as "The best sea scallops in the bay".  Jeremy shucks them with
precision and accuracy. He also fishes with a smaller size drag, crew (solo) and boat to protect the resources out there. His scallops are caught and sold often that day or the next to local consumers,
farmers market vendors and co-ops in Cumberland and Androscoggin
counties. In doing so, we deliver to you a scallop that could be
even enjoyed raw...the true test of its freshness!

Our scallops range in size and price.

Atlantic Sea Scallops

10/20 "Boat Run": These are a large sea scallop that are
great for frying, baking, grilling, stir fry. Generally, 14 large
scallops per one pound. Scallops are sold in pre-measured one pound
bag:

U10s: These are restaurant quality scallops. These are a
super large sea scallop that are great for stuffing as well as all
other cooking methods.  There are 10 or less extra large sea
scallops per pound.  Scallops are sold in pre-measured  one pound
bag.

Thank you for your support and interest in our farm.
