Founded in 1995, the Morris Farm was created in an effort to preserve and operate one of the last remaining farms in Wiscasset. In the ensuing years, trustees, community volunteers, members, and staff have worked tirelessly to restore and expand the farm's buildings and care for the land. We are now a "Forever Farm," as designated by the Maine Farmland Trust.
The Morris Farm is both a working farm and an educational resource for the communities of midcoast Maine. The Morris Farm Trust works to promote the values of sustainable agriculture and stewardship of the earth through education, demonstration and community involvement, while enhancing food security in the greater midcoast area.
Our programming is designed to provide children and adults with an understanding of sustainable agriculture, the environment, and nutrition, the skills to grow, process and cook their own food, and the initiative to support the local food system, especially our growing population of farmers.
Support the Morris Farm as we work to enhance food security in the greater midcoast area, one important aspect of our mission. Our goals are to develop the capacity of the Morris Farm to serve those facing food insecurity directly and to provide structures for local organizations and farmers to work together.
We aim to be a resource for local agriculture. Our 50 acres currently supports a resident farmer, cows and sheep from Straw's Farm, and various community gardens. We sell products from local farms in our farm store, and maintain an updated directory of farms in Lincoln County.
In addition to our own classes and programs, community groups often use our facility. Currently, the Dam Jam Fiddlers and the Sheepscot Spinners meet in our Learning Center. We also rent the Learning Center, barn and portions of the land for a variety of events, including weddings.
Our farm store is open 5 days a week, Monday-Friday from 12 Noon to 5 PM. We sell an assortment of food and craft products including: vegetables, meat, eggs, raw milk, cheeses, canned goods, honey and maple syrup, children's books, cookware, and decorative items. Most suppliers of goods sold in the store are located within a 30-mile radius.
