Local Food Movement

Wolfe’s Neck Farm in the Local Food Movement

Wolfe’s Neck Farm is helping to strengthen the local food movement in Maine through its Vegetable CSA program, its Farm Stand, and by offering pasture raised lamb, poultry and turkey. The partnership with Miyake and the Farm to Table Dinners are helping to connect local restaurants, local farmers, and local consumers together. Our Teen Ag program is helping to teach local teens the value of sustainable agriculture, and of knowing where you food comes from. Here are some other links to help you connect with the Maine Local Food Movement!
