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.

 

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