Our "factory" is a one-time summer cottage located on Deer Isle, complete with white clapboards, window boxes and original pine paneling throughout the 15' x 25’ kitchen; plus a really tiny shipping room and a one-person office. In this absurdly small space we produce 300-350 jars of jam a day---pouring, capping and labeling each jar by hand, most weekdays from January to November.
Nervous Nellie’s shares an idyllic pastoral setting with Peter Beerits Sculpture which is housed in a handsome old frame building that served as a general store in North Deer Isle in days gone by (old-timers remember getting penny candy there). Peter fabricates sculptures using native pine and the rapidly-disappearing metal artifacts of rural life. Dozens of sculptures, including several buildings comprise our sculpture village. And we have a small shop with carefully-chosen Maine handcrafts. Visit our online shop or, better yet, visit us in person.
The cafe closes for the year on Oct 19, but we are open most days in the kitchen, cooking, selling, shipping, schlepping, so please do visit, but contact us first to be sure. . .
