Dooryard Farm and Endless Summer Flower Farm

Dooryard Farm is a small family-run farm serving the Camden-Rockland area. We are proudly MOFGA certified organic and dedicated to an ecological approach to agriculture where our primary goal is building and maintaining soil fertility. We utilize a combination of tractor-scale and hand-scale growing methods. In addition to vegetables, we also run sizable dahlia operation (cut-flower and mail-order). Roughly half of our sales are from an on-site farm stand with the remainder from local direct marketing to restaurants, co-ops, etc.
