Press release: Starting on January 22, 2019, we will be closing the restaurant for approximately eight weeks to renovate the interior of the building and redesign our kitchen. We plan to reopen the restaurant on or about March 15.
Parts of this building are over 60 years old and need to be updated, as does the building’s infrastructure, which will be addressed during the renovation. As part of the renovation, we will be making some changes to our menu, which we are excited about. We’ll be adding a brick oven to our kitchen and will be adding brick oven pizza to our menu. We also intent to add a small market to the first floor where you’ll be able to purchase local foods, craft beers, wine and spirits.
When we are open, things will look a bit different and there will be changes, but we’re confident that the changes will be positive. Cole Farms will still be the place you go to join friends and family for a great meal of coffee and dessert. We’ll still be your go-to place for family get-togethers and celebrations.
Change is a normal part of our lives and can sometimes feel uncomfortable. But the reality is that the world never stops changing and new opportunities arise all the time. The time is now to grab onto some of these new opportunities that are blowing our way.
As always, thank you for your patronage and support. We are nothing without our loyal customers! We ask for your patience during the renovations and look forward to introducing you to the new space and offerings when we reopen in March. See you soon!
Brad Pollard, Owner of Cole Farms

When you consider food in Maine, you might automatically conjure up images of buttery lobster and fried-to-perfection seafood. If you do that, you wouldn’t be wrong. In fact, you’d be very, very right. But, your food dreams don’t need to end there. There are so many other options for great food in Vacationland, that you could easily create a multi-stop, internationally inspired food road trip here. In fact, maybe we should do that! But, while you’re waiting for that journey go for something tried-and-true…pizza! This one is a bit out-of-the-way, but it rivals anything larger you might find in Portland, Bangor or the touristy spots in the state. Keep reading in Only in Your State

The New Gloucester Fire and Rescue hosted their annual barbecue at Thompsons’ Orchards on September 30th. A fundraiser for the NGFR, they hoped to clear $1,000 for various needs and projects. The weather was perfect and many stopped to enjoy chicken, burgers and hot dogs. Gray Stop and Shop and an anonymous donor helped support this cause.

Rupert Watson, left, Tom Blake, Phil Blake and David Watson, along with others, met Sept. 19 at the New Gloucester Veterans Monument to see the inscription for the Watsons’ uncle, a British WW II pilot in the Royal Navy who perished over the skies of New Gloucester during training maneuvers in 1943.
1943 air crash memorialized
Tragedy struck over the skies of New Gloucester’s Intervale region 75 years ago.
On Oct. 3, 1943, British pilots Lieutenant Commander Alfred Jack Sewell and Sub-Lieutenant David James Falshaw Watson took off from Brunswick Naval Air Station to practice training maneuvers. Apparently one plane came up under the other, causing a collision that resulted in the deaths of both pilots.
The plane crash occurred over the meadow behind Everett Stinchfield Blake’s farm on Penney Road. Blake’s son, Phil, presented this story to his fellow members of the New Gloucester Veterans Monument Committee, who decided that the two WWII British allies deserved to be recognized on the town’s Veterans Monument.
Rupert and David Watson learned about the tribute to their uncle through internet research. When Rupert and his wife, who are from New Zealand, were visiting his brother David in New York, they decided to visit the Veterans Monument. They contacted Jean Libby from the Veterans Monument Committee in advance.
On Sept. 19, Phil Blake’s son, Tom, presided over a gathering of the three members of the Watson family, plus 20 New Gloucester Historical Society members and local dignitaries to honor pilot David James Falshaw Watson and present the trio with memorabilia from the monument’s dedication ceremony in 2014.
