Transforming our relationship with farming and food for a healthier planet

 

COVID-19 Update: Our top priority is to protect the health, safety, and well-being of our visitors and staff. Barns are now reopen during Open Barn Times only (Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-Noon & 2-4:30pm). The organic dairy barn remains closed to the public at this time. If visiting, please practice social distancing from others enjoying the open space. Dogs must be leashed at all times.

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.
