Marr Pond Farm

Marr Pond Farm is a 7 acre MOFGA certified organic farm in rural Sangerville, Maine, started by farmers Courtney and Ryan in 2016. We grow a rainbow of vegetables, cut flowers, and shiitake mushrooms with a focus on soil health and resource conservation. Our products are marketed through CSA shares, farmers markets, restaurants, and natural food stores across central Maine.

We love where we live and farm. Our area has abundant natural beauty, and the farm is a quick drive from Peaks-Kenney state park, Sebec Lake, Moosehead Lake, the Appalachian Trail, and more. We’re also part of a close-knit community of new and established area farmers, and believe a vibrant multi-generational community is the foundation of any sustainable farm.

What to Expect from Us

We provide educational opportunities to all interested employees, and do (mostly) weekly field walks to ensure everyone has an understanding on what’s happening around the farm. This is also a great time to ask questions and learn more about facets of the farm that might be less visible. We are open with our employees about all aspects of our farm, from finances to crop planning to harvest stages and more. We also maintain a wide collection of farming, gardening, permaculture, climate activism, and social justice books we’re happy to lend. We take great joy in passing on our knowledge (we got a lot of it from other farmers!)

We are especially interested in applicants that are excited to become a long-term employee, as our farm continues to grow. Long-term employees are eligible for competitive raises based on performance, responsibilities, and commitment. We are dedicated to sharing our knowledge and contributing to the education and growth of long-term employees, and will develop learning objectives over the winter months on a 1-on-1 basis with interested crew members.
