Green Thumb Farms has been farming in Western Maine since 1965. Working on over 2200 acres of rich Saco River Valley soil has firmly established their reputation for quality potatoes, turf, dry beans and corn.
The Maine Potato Board was created in 1986 by an act of the Maine Legislature for the purpose of establishing a cohesive framework for effective leadership within the potato industry.
Penobscot McCrum LLC was formed in 2004 when the McCrum family purchased the assets of Penobscot Frozen Foods, breathing new life into an established processing business. This marriage of two Maine companies created one of North America’s largest suppliers of superior, value-added potato specialty products.
