Mount Battie Looms over the picturesque Camden Harbor with some beautiful fall foliage on display.

Executive Chef and proprietor of Primo, Chef Melissa Kelly is the 2013 James Beard Foundation Award winner of the American Express Best Chef: Northeast Award. She also received this award in 1999, making her the first 2-time winner of the same award. Melissa has spent the last 20 years expanding the farm situated on Primo’s nearly 5 acres. What started with a greenhouse, 2 acres of organic gardens, and 2 pigs, has evolved to include broiler and layer chickens, ducks, guinea hens, and 9 pigs. At peak season, about 80% of the ingredients used in the Primo Kitchen are sourced from the farm. The choice to open a restaurant in Maine was driven by the fact that Maine has the largest Farmer and Garden Association and the proximity to the coast for seafood. Melissa describes the availability of ingredients fresh from the Primo farm as “the dream way to cook.”

Engaging Cooking Classes with Chef Kelly

Enjoy a culinary fun-filled day with Chef Kelly that will certainly appease your taste buds. The adventure takes place at the scene of the welcome dinner, Primo farm, where guests will be given a farm tour by Primo's Chef Kelly. Following the farm tour, a cooking class and lunch at the farm await.

Local Food Adventures

Kickstart the day with a foodie adventure to the local oyster farm where you are all invited to learn about harvesting and shucking ( tasting included, it goes without saying). After that, carry on to your next adventure with foraging, before making your way to a local cheese farm and a buffalo farm.
