We are a small berry, orchard, mixed green and vegetable farm in Kennebec County, East Vassalboro Maine. We have a 29 year old son, 25 year old daughter and 23 year old daughter. Our land backs up to the outlet stream of China Lake and has a wonderful toboggan hill. We are within walking distance of store, library, church (Quaker, Methodist or Baptist),China Lake boat landing, sports fields and Grange Hall. The bicycling and fishing in the area are well known. We are 30 miles(42km) from the ocean. Our farm has been in and out of our family since 1906. Our farm house has a large kitchen living area with an available bedroom bathroom in the winter and a larger living quarters from April to October. We operate a small farmers market on Saturday at the farm and sell most berries to health food stores locally and on the coast. We also maintain a local CSA that distributes food Saturdays off the farm. Colby College, Thomas College, UMA and the Maine State Capital are 9 miles away for broader entertainment. Occasional opportunity to visit other organic farms or MOFGA workshops.
