Welcome To Our Family Owned Farm
Laughing Stock Farm is a four season, family owned vegetable farm located in Freeport, Maine. We have been serving the restaurant, retail, and consumer markets from Freeport to Kennebunkport since 1997. Four season farming in our 15,500 square feet of winter greenhouses allows us to provide fresh, local produce to our CSA shareholders, restaurants and retailers all winter, while our 15 outside acres rest for the coming April.
If you are a consumer interested in purchasing our vegetables, or any of the other local farm products that we carry all year round, visit our Community Supported Agriculture or “CSA” link at the left to see details of how our CSA works, as well as how you can buy your Summer and Winter farm shares.
If you are a consumer wondering where you can experience our products prepared by some of the best chefs in Maine, you should visit the Wholesale link, too.
If you are a restaurant or retail establishment in the Freeport to Wells area interested in offering our produce to your customers, visit our “ Wholesale” link at left.
The Eat Local Cookbook
We pulled together a CSA cookbook for our CSA members in 2010. The recipes in our CSA cookbook are some of our favorites, some that have been provided by our members over the years, and some from the chefs at the restaurants who buy our produce.
That CSA cookbook caught the attention of the editors at Downeast Books who contacted Lisa and asked her to consider writing a cookbook dedicated to the concept of local, seasonal food. A year later the “The Eat Local Cookbook”, written by your farmer Lisa Turner, was published by Downeast Books hit the store shelves. It has received excellent reviews. In fact, for a time it was No. 1 on the Portland Press Herald nonfiction best seller list!
The “The Eat Local Cookbook” is available at most local bookstores, but if you can’t find it there, you can get it on line at many resellers, at Downeast Books, or stop by the farm and get your copy signed by the author.
