Rockefeller Farms’ Operation Intertwines With College Classes

March 29, 2019 – By Jeffrey B. Roth, Lancaster Farming. Mount Desert Island, Maine – Lambing season is “the most intense time of the year” on Peggy Rockefeller Farms, said C.J. Walke, farm manager. “We are at the end of lambing season – about 40 lambs so far, and maybe one old ewe left to lamb,” Walke said. He lives with his family in the farmhouse on the 125-acre farm, operated by the College of the Atlantic. It is located not far from Bar Harbor, a favorite tourist destination along what is referred to as the “Downeast Coast” of Maine.
