From community programs and seasonal festivals for young children to Farm to Table dinners highlighting our local restaurant partners and their commitment to local ingredients, there is something for everyone.
Members of Wolfe’s Neck Center receive advanced registration to all of our ticketed events.
Every Wednesday from July 7-September 29, Wolfe’s Neck Center & L.L.Bean is offering free family activities and tours at the farm. Programs will be posted two weeks out at the below link, where you can sign up in advance. Programs will change throughout the summer, so check back for great new family fun all season long!
Just 15 minutes from L.L.Bean, Wolfe’s Neck Center is home to gorgeous views of Casco Bay, miles of hiking trails, and a full-scale farm with livestock, veggies, and more! Every Wednesday, as part of L.L.Bean’s Summer Across Maine, we will be offering outdoor activities for families all day long!
Go for a guided walk on our trails in search of salamanders, take an educational tour through our barns and pastures full of sheep, goats, chickens, and cows, find crustaceans hiding in the seaweed as we explore tide pools, or enjoy a relaxing wagon ride across our 600+ acres. Every week we’ll be offering different activities for the whole family to get outside in a safe and meaningful way on our farm. You can even finish your day of exploration with ice cream at our Farm Café, or take home some organic jam from our Farm Store!
Groups will be kept small to ensure social distancing, and face coverings are required for all adults and children over 3. All participants must pre-register. Register: https://www.wolfesneck.org/calendar/

“All disease begins in the gut,” a quote from Hippocrates, is more relevant today than ever. In this three-part workshop series, we’ll explore the relationship between the health of the gut/microbiome and the health of our planet’s soil. The series is led by Allie Armstrong, herbalist and functional medicine health coach.
Each of our Farm-to-Table dinner is unique, as we partner with a different chef to feature local foods at the peak of their season, harvested here and at other area farms. What they all have in common is that you can expect a beautiful farm setting, live music, great company, and delicious local food and beverages while benefiting our nonprofit.
Engage in moments of fun and learning with your family through one of our many farm and campground programs led by our educators.
