    To get an idea of what is in store, in 2018 we travelled through beautiful coastal Lincoln County from Waldoboro to Westport Island!

    • Scott Blueberry Hill Farm, Waldoboro.  This family farm sells blueberries only for the fresh market which presents some interesting challenges for Dale, Larry and their sons. We will learn about the practices the Scotts have implemented to reduce run-off and erosion and improve water quality as well as about the importance of native bumblebees for blueberry pollination. 
    • Lunch at East Forty Farm & Dairy, Waldoboro. This farm is home to Lakin's Gorges Cheese, Foley's Custom Sawmill and Neal Foley's Farm to Table catering. Neal will prepare lunch especially for us - and we can visit the farm store for fresh and aged cheeses; farm-raised, grass-fed meat; and cutting boards harvested from the farm forest.

    • Wishing Well Acres Farm, Edgecomb. Gary Balducci, former supervisor of Knox-Lincoln SWCD, raises an interesting variety of livestock on his 40-acre diversified family farm in Edgecomb Village. For 30+ years, Gary has provided customers with locally-raised lamb & goat meat, holiday turkeys, chickens - and emu eggs! In addition, Gary has implemented practices to protect the water quality in the stream at the bottom of his fields including adding a wildlife buffer that entertains his grandkids for hours at a time!
    • Tarbox Farm and Sasanoa Brewery, Westport Island. Current Knox-Lincoln SWCD supervisor, Jeff Tarbox, leases the MOFGA certified family farm to organic farmer Kyle DePietro. The Island provides a unique coastal climate to grow a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, flowers and culinary herbs for farmers markets and the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Additonally, the farm raises organically-fed & pastured pigs and is home to the brand-new Sasanoa Brewery, where those interested are invited to taste the new brews, which are also made with organic ingredients...
