For the past 30 years, “Blue Bird Ranch” has had a number of different types of businesses. Blue Bird Ranch is owned and operated by the Prout Family. The first business that started was farming blueberries fields in Washington County and hen farms in Lubec and Jonesboro, ME. In the late 1970’s, the hen farms were sold due to the closing of railroads in Washington County. At that time, the Prout family began their trucking
business in Jonesboro, ME.

For a short time in the early 80’s, the family ran a small take out restaurant and catering business.

The 1990s was a growing year for the company, as dry and cold storage warehouses were build in Jonesboro and the business expanded the warehousing storage to also include a location in Baring, Maine. The trucking and warehouse businesses are run by James M. Prout (father) and by sons, Troy M. Prout, Brad E. Prout and Darren J. Prout.

Another business expansion was the purchase of Graham’s Restaurant in February of 1996. This restaurant is known as The Blue Bird Ranch Family Restaurant. Hope A. Prout (mother) and Bethany Prout Foss (daughter) run the restaurant.

In 2004, the Prout Family opened the Barren View Golf Course also located in Jonesboro and is managed by Brad E. Prout. The latest business venture, is manufacturing Norumbega Blue Blueberry Vinaigrette Dressing and Norumbega Blue Blueberry Jam made in Maine with Wild Maine Blueberries.

Meet The Author
Maria received degrees in both business and psychology and had worked as both a travel professional and a real estate agent when she realized that she could combine both of her passions — travel and residential real estate and design. Managing vacation rental properties since 2003, she has spent countless hours obsessively networking with other vacation rental professionals. Her love for residential architecture and beautiful landscapes has led Maria to collect houses around the globe, including one purchased sight unseen on the Bay of Fundy in Canada. She’s also been lucky to live in some really cool locales – an 18th century carriage house on Beacon Hill in Boston, a medieval castle in Europe, several resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, and a historic Spanish-eclectic Pacific view home in southern California. Maria currently divides her time between an artsy farmhouse in Machiasport, Maine, a quintessential cape house on Cape Cod and a beach cottage in tiny Phinney Cove, Nova Scotia. Oh, and her, oh-so-chaotic, home life consists of a musician hubby, two teenagers, four cats, two dogs and a diaper-wearing house-chicken.
