The Farm

The farm is located in Durham, ME about 25 minutes north of Portland and 10 minutes from Freeport, ME. We are on a 17-acre piece of land. 10 acres of hay, 2 acres of woods, 1.5 acres of crops, a farm store and 5 high tunnels.


We are a certified organic diverse vegetable farm. We operate a farm store that is open 5 days a week (Tuesday-Saturday) year roud. We have 5 high tunnels (soon to be 6) and an acre + of field crops. We are a low till farm utilizing cultural interventions, crop rotation, tarping, hand cultivating, and zero pesticides. We grow crops for our farm store which has a 20 member Buy Down CSA, several wholesale channels, and an online farmer market. We rely almost solely on solar power to run the farm infrastructure apart from the diesel tractor.

In the store, we sell all local products such as milk, butter, cheese, meats, honey, maple syrup, ferments, hummus, chips, etc from roughly a 30-mile radius. We also offer soups, salads, and sandwiches comprised of bread from our in-house baker, veggies from the farm, and other local ingredients.
