An Animal Powered Certified Organic Family-Operated "Forever Farm"
Winterberry farm, where children and veggies grow:
Located in the heart of the Belgrade Lakes Region in Belgrade, Maine, Winterberry Farm is a small, diversified certified organic farm set on forty acres of open fields, pastures and woodland.
Only fifteen minutes from Augusta and Waterville, it boasts an 1870’s Victorian farmhouse, a shaker-built barn, lush gardens, and the Winterberry Farm Farmstore where we sell some of Maine’s finest all-natural and certified organic foods.
Our mission is to create a sense of community and belonging by offering our wholesome food and flowers with our neighbors and to restore old-fashioned values by inviting people to come and experience life the way it used to be, on our animal powered farm.
Our commitment to sustainable agriculture allows us to produce abundant food and flowers without depleting resources or polluting the environment.
Our certified organic food is produced specifically with families in mind, to ensure the health of my children and the land on which they are raised.
In December 2012, we officially donated our development rights.
Our farm will now be protected for future generations.
For us this has been an important piece of our farming system to give back to this farm what is has given to my children and I, a life support system.

“We have to challenge the idea that contamination is just the price of living in the modern world. Our bodies don’t have systems to process plastics or flame retardants or pesticides. If contamination is the price of modernsociety modern society has failed us.”
