GroMaine

GroMaine
Location: Woodland, Maine
Website: http://www.gromaine.com/

The concept for Gromaine sprouted in the hearts of two Maine brothers. Born to long farming heritages, Tristan and Jon Noyes were raised to appreciate the soil and all of the friends they made on it.  The brothers experienced countless acts of generosity, unique cultivation of ideas, and a hearty spirit imbued with a sense that nothing is impossible.  Consequently, at it’s root, Gromaine cares about kindness, quality, innovation, and tradition.
Mainers care deeply about their land, and especially what grows from it.  Gromaine provides organic, sustainably grown lettuce and leafy greens to select Maine restaurants, specialty grocers, and directly to consumers.  The farm connects consumers to the land by sharing the entire growing process, from seed to leaf and farm to fork.
