Absolutely Unique Farm in Starks ME
Stunning historic farm settled in 1776 - 107 acres; ½ in old-growth woodlot never commercially
harvested, ½ in open fields, all in continuous organic management for the past 27 years.
With only two families in ownership in its history, this heritage farm is a gem. Completely updated
Federal style farmhouse with 3800 square feet of comfortable living space, 40' x 100' post and beam
barn, guest cottage and outbuildings, a 30' x 60' greenhouse, plus 1800 feet of waterfront on the
pristine Sandy River.
The farm's rich, deep (rock free!) sandy loam and clay-based soils are the best growing land in Maine.
The farming emphasis for the last quarter century has been on biological soils management to produce
nutrient dense vegetables, grains, prime hay and pasturage.
The home, set in the middle of the farm's open land and surrounded by mature shade trees, flowering
shrubs, gardens, and an heirloom apple orchard, offers complete privacy as well as unobstructed views
of the fields and woods in the distance.
Ideal for working organic production, equestrian facility or simply an elegant, gentleman's farm.
A commercial facility on a separate acre is available should a new owner be interested in local
foods/farm-to-table business opportunities. It includes:
over-sized commercial kitchen with wood-fired brick oven;
8' x 24' walk-in refrigerated storage accessible from loading dock and from the kitchen;
root cellar storage for up to 40 tons of local farm products;
