The Farm is the legacy of Lawrence M.C. and Eleanor Houston Smith. The Smiths came to Maine in the 1940’s from Philadelphia. This 626-acre saltwater farm was the perfect place for the Smiths to begin their natural farming operation. They believed in the useful preservation and protection of open spaces, and after farming the land for many years, they gave it to their community.
We have a clear and exciting mission: To continue and improve Wolfe’s Neck Farm’s long tradition of sustainable agriculture, recreation and education while preserving its open space.
And an even more exciting challenge: Center for Agriculture and the Environment will be a leading demonstration farm and educational resource center for innovative and sustainable practices in agriculture and natural resources.
