Four Waters Farm

We are a very small diverse organic family farm located on the land of the Wabanaki people. We cultivate 1.5 acres of vegetables, pasture raise chickens, host the growing of grain crops, and raise dry beans when we can. We strive to be a supportive part of our local community and economy. Growing good food for our region and taking care of the land where we live is our way of enhancing the coexistence of all beings. The majority of our produce is sold through local wholesale outlets and distributed to area food pantries. Our meat chickens are raised on pasture and moved daily. We have worked to restore the soil health in our fields since arriving here over 4 years ago. We do as much as we can by hand and are grateful for the help of our tractors and trusty farm truck.
