Aldermere Farm (Rockport, Maine) Baby Belties!


Aldermere farm (Rockport - just a few miles from the Inn) is holding its annual Calf unveiling Day on the 10th May.. 10-3pm. See baby Belted Galloway calves ( Galloway's are originally from Scotland, - as are we- so we have a fondness for them!) It is a great (Free) day out, and besides the cattle, there are numerous local farms with fabulous goodies to sell.
The local farms participating this year include Sunnyside Farm that raise goats,(these are not for sale, just their products! ) Spruce Mountain Blueberries with blueberry items, Sewall Orchard with organic apple cider and cider vinegar, Village Farm Alpacas with yarn and information on their farm, State of Maine Cheese Company with various types of cheeses, Blue Sky Alpacas with alpacas and yarns, and Ells Farm & Sheep Dairy with meat samples, sheep skins, and yarn.
Lots of lovely Maine products to take home!

Moose visits Camden Inn

Guests at the Blue Harbor House got a rare treat for breakfast today (besides the delectable rhubarb and ginger pancakes) when a young Moose strolled passed the porch and calmly settled in the garden of the Inn. We all took the opportunity for an amazing impromptu photo session! Life in Maine is full of surprises! Posted by Picasa
