About The Farm

Wildfire Fellowship Farm

Our goal is to maintain and increase soil quality by the addition of minerals and organic matter that will feed soil life and result in the production of nutritious and great tasting produce.

The farm is owned and managed by Peter Coleman, who has been growing fruits and vegetables on this land for over forty years. IMG_4962

2012 – the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) granted the farm organic certification. All fruit and vegetables produced for sale are certified organic. That means we adhere to the strict standards of the USDA National Organic Program.

2013 –  This was our first full year of commercial production, all produce was sold on a wholesale basis to local retail vendors.

2014 Our CSA Program is started. This program allows our customers to buy shares of our production in advance of the season at a discount. The CSA program provides a source of upfront revenue for the farm before the start of the market season. With this money we are able to hire employees and expand our operation.

2015 –  We added a small herd of grass fed Scottish Highland Cattle to our far and implementing an intensive rotational grazing program. In practice what this means is that we shift our cattle to different paddocks around the farm on a regular schedule. This  allows the grass to recover optimally before the cattle return to a particular paddock.

By mimicking the natural grazing patterns of wild cattle / buffalo we accelerate top soil growth. This practice is the most effective method to naturally enhance marginal and difficult soils, to learn more about this practice and Holistic Planned Grazing in general we recommend the Savory Institute.

2016 – Our production is distributed across multiple venues including retail sales via our CSA share program (Community Supported Agriculture), our a la carte Direct Sales Program, and at the farmers market in Norway.

We provide wholesale produce to Fare Share Market on Main Street in  Norway and Greenwood Orchard  Farm Stand on Rt. 4 in Turner.
