Sarah bakes English muffins and breads as well as shepherd pies, and they sell their goods at farmers markets around the state including Brunswick where Gail met them several years ago. She says, “I feel lucky to have found them.”
CSG supports Maine’s remarkable local food system in other ways, too. She serves scallops caught by her nephew, lobsters trawled by her daughter, chickens from “John the chicken man” at Maine-ly Poultry in Warren, ME, breads from local bakeries and as much produce as possible from Wealdon’s Freeport farm and market. Gail supports the local economy choosing local and organic food whenever possible. She shops by the calendar first looking locally, then regionally, and finally nationally and in Canada.
CSG’s food and nutrition approach is rooted in Gail’s passion for healthy, local food and shared through daily conversations with girls visiting her in the kitchen. And given Maine’s growing local food movement, she will continue to have even better local choices.
