The Morris Far
m Trust
   is both a working farm and an educational resource for the communities of mid coast Maine. 
As non-profit, educational, membership organization, T
he Morris Farm Trust promotes the values of sustainable agriculture and stewardship of the earth through education, demonstration and community involvement by providing:
  • A local farm and landscape that provides food, education, recreation, and pride in Midcoast Maine for many generations
  • Agricultural education for people of all ages, particularly local public school students
  • Responsible farming on the land in Wiscasset with the help and support of our whole community
  • The consumption of locally-grown food
  • Sustainable agriculture techniques
  • The value of manual labor as an essential pillar of American culture and education
  • Aesthetically and environmentally-sensitive land-use planning
  • The preservation of a distinct regional identity and local traditions that will strengthen our community from within and attract residents, businesses, and visitors to our area
  • The essential connections between people, land, and meaningful labor

The Morris Farm Trust recognizes that local, ecologically-sound farming is an essential yet threatened part of our heritage. As the traditional working landscapes of Maine continue to disappear, there is an intensifying need to support agriculture that is sustained from the work and wisdom of people within our community.


Thanks to all who came out to meet their

local farmers and fisherfolk for our

The Morris Farm Trust's
Annual Meeting

Thursday, April 30th at 6 PM 

The Morris Farm’s Annual Meeting is coming up on Thursday, April 30th!  Join us at 6:00 PM for a potluck and very brief business meeting, followed by a brief presentation and informal discussion led by Ben Marcus and Taryn Hammer of the Sheepscot General Store on how communities can support sustainable local agriculture.

And this is a good time to remind our supporters to renew their memberships by going to the website and joining up again.  It is YOUR membership that makes us a sustainable organization to work on our mission.  As our “family” grows, so can our ability to support sustainable agriculture.  

Thank you!  Click here and join us to...
