Transforming our relationship with farming and food for a healthier planet

We are a one-of-a-kind place on the coast of Maine that connects farmers, eaters, and learners to the land and animals at the core of our food systems.

A sustainable coastal farm for nearly sixty years, Wolfe’s Neck Center is home to an oceanfront campground, leading demonstration farm, and educational resource center for innovative practices in regenerative agriculture.

 

Your gift supports a better future for farming, our children, our community and the planet.

Help Us Feed Our Community This Season

Giving Tuesday is on November 30th! This year, you’ll have the opportunity to support two great organizations with one gift!

For every $10 donation to Wolfe’s Neck Center,  2 pounds of our pasture raised beef will go to Freeport Community Services‘ food pantry, getting food to those who really need it.

With your help, we can ensure that more families have food on the table during this holiday season.

The Night Tree is Back!

We’re thrilled that our favorite holiday tradition, the Night Tree event, will be returning in person at the farm this year!

Held on the hour from 9am-2pm, each group of 25 will safely gather to read Eve Bunting’s book, make creations for the forest animals, and walk out to a fire to hang them on trees. This wonderful tradition was created by Judy Higbea, a beloved educator, WNC board member, and community member who passed away in 2015.

The Night Tree event celebrates and gives thanks to our members for their ongoing support. Our members are the heart of Wolfe’s Neck Center. Your membership supports our work to connect people of all ages to food and farming.

The Night Tree event is sold out!  Become a member for advanced ticket registration for WNC events.

The first open-source technology ecosystem to address soil health and mitigate climate change, OpenTEAM is a farmer-driven, interoperable platform to provide farmers around the world with the best possible knowledge.

Scientists Use New Grant to Benefit Climate, Cows

A $3 million grant from the Shelby Cullom Davis Charitable Fund will allow researchers from Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment to collaborate with scientists from Bigelow Laboratory using our herd to study the effect of Maine seaweed in a cow’s diet and its potential for methane emissions reduction.

We are a community farm at our core, and our members are the backbone of Wolfe’s Neck Center. Your membership helps us use the power of farming and food to educate, inspire, connect, and make a lasting impact on every person who comes here to learn, camp and explore this extraordinary landscape. Plus, memberships make great gifts anytime of year and offer some fun perks!
