About the Farmers
Pete retired from the Marine Corps in 1995 and started Fairwinds Farm shortly thereafter, with just the farm stand and three acres of mixed vegetables.
Cathy, who grew up in Bowdoinham (and spent summers picking peas on the grounds we now farm!), owned and operated a separate farm at that time. Over the following years, we joined our farms (and lives), and the business has grown to what it is today. We have five children, four adorable Grandsons, three beautiful Granddaughters and three Newfoundland dogs.
In 2020 Our Son, Charlie, (along with his wife and young son), joined us in the business...they will eventually be running the show!
The rest of our children are now living in various parts of the country - but they all come back to visit, and help, whenever they can!
