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.

2023 Events

Join us this summer for a variety of fundraising events that support our mission to transform relationships with farming and food for a healthier planet! Whether you choose to join us for our Farm to Table series showcasing world class culinary talent and food from local producers or for our annual beer festival Beers in the Barn that brings together over two dozen local breweries, we hope you don’t miss your chance to partake in the fun. These events will be held in either our historic Mallet Barn or new Smith Center for Education and Research.

Green Crab Derby

Join us at Wolfe’s Neck Center on Saturday, June 24th to participate in this exciting volunteer event! In an effort to suppress the invasive European green crab, we are asking volunteers to help collect them from the intertidal zone of Wolfe’s Neck Center. Following a brief presentation, volunteers will take a wagon ride to the coast, buckets in hand, to collect as many green crabs as possible. Attendees will learn how to repurpose green crabs in tasty culinary treats and in the compost pile. Collected green crabs will either be taken home or added to the Wolfe’s Neck Center compost pile. The attendee who collects the most green crabs will win a night of camping at Wolfe’s Neck Oceanfront Campground!

Leading the Way on Climate Smart Agriculture

Recently, Wolfe’s Neck Center received up to $35 million via a grant from the USDA’s Partnerships for Climate Smart Commodities program, which aims to support agriculture’s ability to become a solution to climate change. We wanted to share with you what this means for Wolfe’s Neck Center.

Our TransFARMation

Building on our history, we are putting down new roots to strengthen our connection to the food we grow, and to be a leading voice in demonstrating how agriculture plays a key role in fighting climate change. Learn more about our plan to reimagine the Wolfe’s Neck Center campus below!


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!

We Farm on Abenaki Land.
