Creating a world where agriculture and food systems support farmer viability, thriving ecosystems, and vibrant communities.

We are a one-of-a-kind place on the coast of Maine advancing agriculture – on our own farm, regionally, and nationally – to accelerate change in food systems and mitigate the effects of a changing climate through regenerative farming demonstration and training, innovative research, and collaborations.

Operating as a nonprofit organization since 1997, and an organic coastal farm for over sixty years, Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment is a farm-based education, research, and visitor center set amidst more than 600 acres of conserved open space along Casco Bay in Freeport, Maine.

2024 Farm to Table Series

The Farm to Table series has been a vital fundraising and community building effort at Wolfe’s Neck Center for many years. In 2024, we invite you to join us in exploring the Maine foodscape with the area’s best producers, chefs, and food system leaders.
With the new Smith Center as the hub of our event series, we have the ability to host more events that will provide guests with a deeper connection to food, farming, and the excellent chefs and producers we have here in Maine. This season, we have three different categories of events that provide different experiences with our partners.

 

The Smith Center for Education & Research

The Smith Center for Education & Research is the centerpiece of our reimagined campus, representing our transformation from a Farm to a Center. Every aspect of this new Center, including the design, layout, and furnishing enhances Wolfe’s Neck Center’s ability to significantly grow our programmatic offerings and impact. The Smith Center is able to accommodate groups of 5 to150 and is perfectly situated at the heart of our campus.
