If you love lobster and don’t live in the northeast, you’ve got to get a piece of this! Catch a Piece of Maine offers “partnership” it their company. For only $2,995 per year, they offer an entire season’s worth of lobsters caught in your own designated lobster trap (which you can monitor online), and a lobsterman to tend to it. You’re guaranteed at least 40 lobsters annually, sent to the address of your choice throughout the season. Each of your packages also comes with fresh mussels and clams, a home-baked dessert, bibs, and cooking instructions.
If that’s a bit out of your budget, you can buy a “share” for your next dinner party. For $249 (includes overnight shipping) you’ll receive a gourmet dinner for four including four 1 ½ lb. hard shell lobsters, 1 lb. Maine steamer clams, 1 lb. Maine Mussels, 4 servings Maine made desserts from local purveyors, lobster bibs, cooking instructions and recipes, utensils, wet-naps, sea salt, a photograph of the lobsterman and the date he caught your lobsters, and the DVD about the Catch a Piece of Maine lobstermen showing your support of the working waterfront and the values associated with Maine.
