We are pleased to announce that as the weather has gotten warmer we’ve decided to partner with Farmhouse Coffee Roasters in Winterport to now offer Nitro Cold Brew on Tap! So if you are looking for a refreshing cold caffeinated beverage in the days to come feel free to come on in and give it a try!
Just popping out a quick note to welcome our newest local vendor to the shelves. We just received our first shipment of beans from Farm House Coffee Roasters up in Winterport. All their beans are organic and roasted to order. So that brings our Maine roasted coffee vendors up to a grand total of 7 so if you are looking for a selection of coffee come on in!
We are also pleased to welcome back to our shelves Blackbrook Farm goat products. There was a short hiatus while we were waiting for kidding but we should be back in regular supply now!
GET READY FOR FALL
Marsh River Co-op is organizing a Fedco fall order for garden seeds, growers supplies, and fall bulbs.
Deadline for the order is 8/14 at noon.
Pickups at the co-op will be 9/4 for seeds and growers supplies, and on 10/12 for bulbs.
Since our spring group order for seeds and growers supplies came in at a 20% discount the same discount will apply to these two divisions.
By ordering with a group you can benefit by receiving a greater percentage off on your order, having the order delivered to the co-op at no charge, and supporting the co-op by sharing at least 25% (or more if you wish) of the discount with the co-op.
Please pay at the co-op for the total of your order before the order deadline listed below. When you pick up your order the amount of the discount plus any out of stocks will be returned to you minus 25% that the co-op is asking as a donation.

Thanks to the generous efforts of two of our volunteer producer/members (Ed & Dave) we have managed to secure a new two door cooler to house all of our dairy products in one place (excluding frozen). We’ve pretty much moved everything over at this point so that means we’ll be adjusting the other cooler spaces we had to be able to add more fridge products to our shelves and we now have more space for more local dairy as well (so if there is something you would like to see please let us know!).
