The Morris Farm Trust is both a working farm and an educational resource for the communities of mid coast Maine. Our 50 acres of pasture and farmland support a University of Maine Extension Master Gardener Demonstration Garden, the Morris Farm Wiscasset Primary School Garden, Wiscasset Community Gardens, our current resident farmer, Hannah Court and her Wandering Root Farm, and in previous years the Morris Farm has hosted a variety of resident farms such as Buckwheat Blossom Farm and Aland-Dee Farm with poultry, holsteins cows, Clydesdale horses and Lacie the Nubian Goat and her kid, Lizzie. Ten acres of our land is wooded and features an interpretive trail that connects to the Sortwell Forrest and the Wiscasset Town Trails. A yurt in the woods is within the acreage of the Morris Farm and is available for the hardy 4 season campers.
The Morris Farm offers field trips and after school programs for kindergarten through high school students tied to Maine Learning Results that provide hands-on, real life educational experiences for children of all levels and academic ability as well as lectures, events and demonstrations for both children and adults.
All of our programs rely on participation from trained community volunteers and utilize the farm's land and animals to foster respect for the earth and to instill a sense of shared responsibility for the wise stewardship of natural resources. The farm's programs for adults range from gardening workshops to seminars by advocates of sustainable agriculture and practitioners of traditional handcrafts and farmer-to-farmer training and information exchanges.
Products produced on the farm are for sale in the Morris Farm Store and include raw milk, eggs, cheese, canned goods, berries (depending on the season), pork, chicken, fresh fish delivered from Port Clyde fresh Catch and many other wonderful products from our partners!
