    Farm ID 2224
Property Description:

Set back from the road and 5 minutes from downtown Unity, this property encompasses the rich soils of interior Waldo County. A shop with walk in coolers and upstairs apartment, four greenhouses, three seasonal employee cabins, and three storage sheds have provided adequate infrastructure to run our produce business, growing on 4-8 acres. Established perennial plants range from a hedge row of Nan King Cherries, to a collection of peaches, cherries, blueberries, elderberries, pears, plums, and thimble berries. 53 apple trees were planted in the Spring of 2014; a mixture of Maine heritage varieties, north hardy heirlooms, and a few of the modern disease-resistant varieties on both dwarf and standard rootstock. 15 apple trees planted throughout the property in 2012 and 2013 on standard rootstock have all been maintained with organic pest and disease control methods and have well trained limb structures. NRCS grants have played a valuable role in increasing farm viability with roads, a stream crossing, greenhouse, field irrigation, compost slab, and perimeter fencing. We have been leasing and covercropping an additional 6+ acres of land, less than a mile away. Four high tunnels, sized 16'x30', 30'x60', 30'x72', and 25'x92', are valuable sources of income for our seasonal cash flow and help us catch the produce market in the "shoulder seasons" of Maine's short summer. List of equipment available. Fields are certified by MOFGA
