The Mello Family Farm

We are an Old-Fashioned Family Farm, situated on 13+ wonderful acres in Winterport, Maine, just 15 minutes outside Bangor specializing in Natural, Pastured Poultry, Eggs, & Lamb. Our desire is to produce healthy, nutritious food that you can feel good about eating. By growing, processing and direct-marketing our poultry we can control all aspects of our business.

We also offer homegrown wool fleeces, hand-dyed rovings, homespun yarn in natural and hand-dyed colorations. We also have a group of angora bunnies that provide the fuzziest, warmest angora fibers and yarns, but these are limited and we take orders for them. We have hand-made weaving looms and knitting kits also available. All of our wool is grown organically. Our items are available on our website and at our local yarn shop.

Why Grass-Fed? When we feed animals their original diet, we are feeding them food that is most in harmony with their digestive system. This naturally produces healthier animals. Meat and eggs from grass-fed animals supply our bodies with a natural source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, CLA and Beta-Carotene.

EGGS: Our hens are free to roam the pasture during the day and are provided with shelter for the night. The hens feel secure laying their eggs in the nesting boxes which are housed within their home. They are fed high quality grains. No chemical wash or sealant is used when cleaning the eggs. Our hens lay multi-colored eggs (blue, green, brown, & white) that have dark yellow yolks that are filled with goodness.
