Jeff, Abby, Ben and Melissa are the forces behind Bumbleroot Organic Farm, a dreamy 89 acres of farmland outside of Portland, Maine. They were granted a conservation easement on the land, ensuring it will remain farmland forever. The friends and partners met in the farming and food world of Boulder, Colorado. Maine is lucky to have them now. Chefs Damian Sansonetti and Ilma Jeil Lopez of Piccolo feature the scrumptious cuisine of Italy’s Abruzzi and Calabria regions. Damian and Ilma have worked in some of the world’s most acclaimed restaurants. Most recently, Ilma was nominated for a 2018 James Beard Award as Outstanding Pastry Chef.
