Harold L. Hubbard, "Ike",
was born in Jonesport in 1942. His family moved to
South Portland, Me. when he was 13. With family still
in Jonesport he returned each summer to help his aunt
and uncle with the blueberry harvest and following
his service duty in the Army, returned each fall to
deer hunt with his uncle. He has had a deer camp in
Mason's Bay since the early 70's.
He and his wife Lois purchased the White family
homestead in 1988 and moved permanently to Mason's
Bay in 1990, keeping the homestead in the family for
over 100 years.

started the Hubbard Rake Company. The all aluminum
rake has changed in design some in it's 18 years of
existence to meet the demand of berry rakers. The
totally balanced rake can now be bought in sizes
ranging from 12T decorative rake to a 110T working
