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. If you are visiting, please practice social distancing and wear masks in the barns (adults). 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.
