Josh Pond sits near the northeast coast of Maine, one of the last places in North America where the wild blueberry flourishes. Unlike its cultivated off-shoot, this low-bush variety can't be planted. With the help of bees, its underground runners carry it across the rugged landscape.
Farmers in this region have gathered these delicious sapphires since before the Civil War, during which they were canned and distributed to Union soldiers. According to tradition, we do not use harvesters to pick our berries. Instead, we hand rake them in the dry summer afternoons to prevent bruising. The berries are brought directly from the fields to our processor where they are sorted and packaged.
We hope you'll try our berries, packed fresh during harvest season, and our jam, made according to a cherished Down East recipe.
Aside from fruit, we also produce aged cheese made from the milk of our beloved goats. Our goats live a blessed life: sleeping in a timber-framed barn, eating organic hay and playing on acres of healthy pasture. As a member of the Maine Cheese Guild, Josh Pond's cheeses are handmade in small batches in the tradition of artisan farmstead cheesemaking.
