Our Work

We are working to create place-based, regenerative agricultural solutions to climate change driven by an educated consumer base, connected farmers, and a thriving food producer community.

Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment is a nonprofit, farm-based education, research, and visitor center situated on over 600 acres of coastal farmland in Freeport, ME. Wolfe’s Neck Center is on a mission to create a world where agriculture and food systems support farmer viability, thriving ecosystems, and vibrant communities. 

From farmers to consumers to businesses, a whole system approach is necessary to adequately address the complex problems we are facing.

This looks like:

Demonstration & Education Farm

Utilizing our unique campus to educate, support, and connect farmers, consumers, and food systems leaders by hosting apprenticeships, internships, on-farm workshops, and educational programs.
