Sheepscot General Store – the latest gem in the ‘buy local Maine’ movement
Here in Whitefield, we’re very fortunate to welcome Sheepscot General to the neighborhood. If you’re in or around Lincoln County, it’s worth the trip to the charming Townhouse Road store for fresh veggies, organic meat, milk, bulk wheat, homemade doughnuts, cold beer – and well – the list goes on and on.
“We see ourselves as both a collaboration of people interested in promoting the uniqueness of Whitefield, the Sheepscot region,and the State of Maine wrapped into a country-style store carrying everything we imagine a general store ought to carry.”
The store doesn’t only offer a wide variety of edibles; there’s also a long list of events, classes, and community services. There are monthly art exhibits, a book/video swap, seed library, movie nights, live music, and coming soon – a cafe. And last – but certainly not least – Sheepscot General is now offering fresh lobster (pre-order by Wednesday for Friday delivery) and will be offering fresh Maine shrimp in season as well. It’s best to call ahead to check availability. Enjoy your trip to Sheepscot General!
