Local strawberries aren't just for June. Get them in the new roadside farmstand today. #mainegrown
Gold Medal of my heart. This two pounder is for dinner. Thanks @fruition_seeds for the seedwork you do!
We've got more than Gold Medal growing for you. Pick up some of our tomatoes at the farm stand, @wildgracefarmstore, and @uncledeansnaturalmarket later this week.
You're looking good, watermelon. Real good.
Easier doing it a second time around. Maybe even a better insulation job. Pricey fix for keeping produce fresh before it heads off the farm.
When you discover at dusk that the A/C unit for your coolbot cut the cord. Sometimes, a whole in the wall where your refrigeration should be is what farming looks like... 🤷♂️ Hello appliance aisle at 6am.
The completed self-service POS system! We'll have a cash box and manual receipts as well, but customers will be able to easily ring themselves out and pay by swipe, chip, or touch at the stand.
For other farmstand/business owners looking to do self-serve, the trick here was using the iPad's Guided Access feature, which allows one to limit device access to just the checkout section of the Square app. Guided Access also allows a device owner to block out sections for clicking on the screen. I used this to prevent stand customers from accessing the back end aspects of the app. Super simple to setup.
Our pup, Oso, unimpressed with the finer aspects of setting up the Square reader for the farmstand.
Good Karma, roasting peppers.
Fall-bearing strawbs. We'll have limited availability in our marketstand opening later this week. More to come!

Step No. 6: Drag this hulk of wood down to the roadside. Level it. Attach the deck and ramp. Level those.
We aren't open yet. Still a couple more steps to go...
Bunch of jalapeños, bell peppers, cabbage, and garlic heading down to @oxbowbeergarden in Oxford, ME. Great pizza, a large range of @oxbowbrewingcompany beers on tap. Check it out!
Get 'em at Uncle Dean's tomorrow morning.

Marketstand Step No. 5: Interior is done. Fairly proud of how it's come together. Entry ramp and the electricity is next. POS system is on order, so folks will be able to pay with card.
Will be dragging it into place in short order.
China Community Days, tomorrow from 10am to 3pm at the China Elementary School Ball field. Come on by for some farm-grown pizza!
