Flourishing Remote Bakeries In Maine Symbolize The State’s “Work Ethic”

June 28, 2018: 12:00 AM EST
People looking for quality baked goods are not daunted by out-of-the-way bakery locations. Robin Chase of Whitefield, Maine, is a classic example of that truism. After spending 40 years baking and selling her wares at local farmers markets, she opened a retail bakery shop in the old milk room in her barn. A display case there is packed with Danish pastry, bars, cookies, doughnuts, pies and loaves of bread. Customers are more than happy to search out the Chase Farm Bakery. According to a Maine economic development official, it’s something of a tradition in “a small-business state” teeming with “literally tens of thousands of examples” of flourishing home-based enterprises. “It's a sign of a strong economy and a sign of Maine's work ethic," says Douglas Ray.
