About Len Libby
When Len Libby first opened for business in 1926, you couldn't have found a better example of Yankee work ethic than that of owner Len Libby. At first, Mr. Libby apprenticed with several candymakers, and later worked as master candymaker in the Portland area for several decades.
When he retired, he found he couldn't stay away from candymaking, so he opened his own shop near Higgins Beach in Scarborough, ME. At a time when much of the world's goods were still handmade, the fine art of candymaking was appreciated and admired by young and old alike, and Len Libby's fine selections soon became widely popular.
In 1949, Len Libby sold his business to Fernand Hemond who had begun
his apprenticeship in the Higgins Beach shop while still in college.
From his earliest days with the company, Fern pledged to remain
steadfast in his commitment to the shop's original recipes and to the
proud traditions of candymaking. Open year round except for Easter,
Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
