Days That Revolve Around a 25-Acre Farm
Our organic farm on Chewonki Neck is at the center of every day at Maine Coast Semester. It provides the work, food, and ties to the environment that we live every day. The farm consists of approximately 25 acres of open land and 150 acres of woodlot. One acre is cultivated for vegetable production and the remainder is comprised of pasture, hay fields, buildings, trees, and stone walls. The gardens are carefully planned and intensively managed, producing 10,000-15,000 pounds of vegetables annually for our dining hall. We also raise livestock for milk, meat, eggs, and fiber, and grow timber for firewood and some saw logs.
