Harbor Farm is a small, family owned company located in Downeast Maine, and we've been handcrafting high quality Balsam fresh and real Christmas wreaths, centerpieces and other holiday decorations since 1986, making us one of the oldest wreath companies in Maine. We still do it the old-fashioned way, and every Harbor Farm wreath is handmade by the local residents of the rocky Maine islands and coastal villages of the Penobscot region. All of the native pine cones, acorns, chestnuts, reindeer moss and of course, balsam fir are gathered by hand by local residents each year. Not only does this help to sustain our small community financially, but because the materials are gathered from the forests by the very people who live there, it ensures that the harvesting is done responsibly and sustainably. Maine is one of only a small handful of states blessed with the native Balsam fir tree (Abies balsamea), the most fragrant of the evergreens, which is why the finest and most fragrant wreaths money can buy come from here. Maine is a beautiful state, with rolling hills and mountains, verdant forests, breathtaking blueberry barrens dotted with glacial boulders and abundant wildlife like moose, fox, beaver, loons, bears, bald eagles and so much more. It also has a personality all its own, and it's easy to see why us 'Mainahs' are a close-knit community who take great pride in our gorgeous home state.

Deb Gill and Nanako O'Donnell began Pig and Fish in 2011 as a way to share their passion for functional art through products for everyday living. Their Maine based design studio operates out of a 1,900 sq ft Arts and Crafts style bungalow which the two designed and built in 2006. This process laid the foundation for Pig and Fish by allowing them to carefully consider the ways in which everyday needs can intersect with art. It also confirms their belief that living in an artistic environment has value as it resonates with the vitality of the human essence. At the core of Pig and Fish is this desire to live a creative life. If you are wondering about the quirky business name, it is not to be taken literally! It symbolizes the communication of Inner Truth as taken from one of the hexagram’s in the I-Ching, an ancient Chinese book of divination. Being creative on a daily basis and sharing that passion through the product line is at the heart of Pig and Fish. More than a business, it is a lifestyle where following one's inner truth continually guides both artists. It inspires Deb to design products that embrace both art + function - visually appealing pieces that get touched, opened and used everyday. Within Nanako, it sparks a way to express her love for simple and modern design that flows naturally from an inner stillness.
