Featured Farms


Farming in Maine is in transition. The Maine Farmland Trust estimates that 400,000 acres of Maine's best farmland (nearly one third of all Maine farmland in production) will be changing ownership within the next five years, simply due to the age of the farmland owners. Much of that farmland could be lost to farming without active intervention. 

Young farmers are diversifying the state's farming production. Along with Maine staple crops like blueberries and potatoes, small farms are increasingly producing organic produce, Maine maple syrup, artisan cheeses and more. 



Wolfe's Neck Farm is a 626-acre saltwater farm operated as a non-profit and open to the public every day free of charge. The beautiful farm is the legacy of the Smith family, who began farming the land in the 1940's and believed in the useful preservation and protection of open spaces.

Agriculture is at the heart of Wolfe's Neck Farm. The farm features grass-fed cattle, pasture-raised lamb, community gardens, a vegetable CSA, a farm stand and barnyard tours. 

The mission of Wolfe's Neck Farm is to improve the farm's long tradition of sustainable agriculture, recreation and education while preserving its open space. The organization promotes the idea that sustainable, local food is the key to healthy communities, healthy people and a healthy environment.

Wealden Farm takes great care to manage the land and the business with consideration for the natural and human elements that set its pace. The farm's mission is to maintain the farm, open space, disappearing way of life and rural character so important to the health of their local soils, families and economy.

Crystal Spring Farm is a prime example of community supported agriculture.  The farm grows more than forty varieties of produce and sells shares in its CSA to promote a vegetable-filled diet. The farm hosts a community farmers' market every Saturday.

Crystal Spring Farm is owned by the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust. The beautiful historic farm was saved from development in 1997 through the generous support of the people and businesses of nearby Brunswick.

winter Hill


Set atop a hill surrounded by woods and rolling pasture in the beautiful southern midcoast region of Maine, Winter Hill Farm is a small, family run farm in Freeport. They manage a herd of very rare Randall cattle alongside a few Jersey cows, and operate a small farmstead creamery producing raw milk, yogurt, and artisanal cheeses. They also have Berkshire pigs, a mixed flock of laying hens, and produce seasonal vegetables and flowers for a small CSA, farmers' markets, and weddings. 

Winter Hill Farm's mission is to provide the local community with high quality, wholesome products while maintaining the integrity of the natural environment. This mission follows four basic concepts which guide all they do there on the farm: stewardship, transparency, community, and quality of their craft.

North Yarmouth

In 1999, a group of preservation-minded residents formed a non-profit organization, pursued an aggressive fundraising campaign and purchased Skyline Farm in North Yarmouth. This is one of the few farms in the town's village center with its original land, fifty-four acres of fields and woods. 

Skyline Farm has protected its open space by putting 46 acres into a conservation easement held by the Royal River Conservation Trust. Skyline Farm now hosts a wide variety of community events, including equine activities, museum exhibits, antique auto gatherings, an art show and a music festival.
