Peacemeal Farm

Peacemeal Farm is nestled in the Dixmont hills along the east branch of Martin Stream. The farm was started in the 1970s by back-to-the-landers and was one of the first farms to be certified organic by MOFGA. We started farming here in the early 2000s. The farmhouse and farm buildings sit on a hillside with a view of the fields, stream and surrounding mountains. We have 120 acres of fields, forest and marshland. Dixmont is a rural community where farming, forestry and wildlife define the landscape. We are a 30 minute drive from Belfast and Bangor and a 20 minute drive from Unity.
