Desert, which produces 5 acres of MOFGA certified organic vegetables, herbs and flowers and 1 acre of heirloom apples. The farm is owned by College of the Atlantic. Faller and Davis, with the help of COA students, provide organic produce to the MDI community. Previously the farm was owned by Barbarina and Aaron Heyerdahl, who donated it to COA in the late 1990s. Beech Hill Farm markets to COA's food service, A&B Naturals, Sawyers Market, Pine Tree Market, from the farm stand and through its summer and fall CSA programs.
