Founded in 2019 by the Sturgis family, Shore Breeze Farms sells fresh local produce that they either grow or distribute, plus a variety of other fresh or frozen food products. As traditional grain farming became more and more challenging to navigate, career farmer Steve Sturgis noticed that demand for fresh vegetables and farmer's markets was growing.
Even so, there was no easily accessible local purveyor. Thus Shore Breeze Farms was born, a marketplace for most everything Shore grown, run by Steve and his wife Sherry. They are flanked in the above pic by son Kyle and his wife Emily.
In addition to luscious melons, berries, vegetables and other in-season produce, they sell Mount Nebo meats, Dockery Branch Farms sausage (Emily's brother's company), clams by Cherrystone Aquafarms, and local honey and jams.
They are planning and building hydroponic greenhouses and another retail building which will allow use of the current one for wholesale packing and shipping. It is always gratifying to patronize enterprising farmer entrepreneurs, especially when they help make us less dependent on imported produce shipped from thousands of miles away! A win/win.
