Property Description:

River Bend Farm is an historic 105 acre farm in rural Saco with 1/2 mile of frontage on the Saco River. Recently purchased by The Ecology School (TES), the property is being transitioned into a residential environmental learning center that integrates farming, education and ecology research. TES is looking to partner with farmers who wish to link responsible local farming with community education. The ideal candidate will be open to growing a diversity of foods, much of which TES is willing to purchase as part of its residential programming.
