About the Farm

Connecting Land & Community

At Dandelion Spring Farm, we grow MOFGA certified organic vegetables & herbs on unceded Wabanaki land in central Maine. We are one of over 500 Certified Organic farms and processors in the state with a dedication to soil, community, and safe and nutritious food for all.

Our produce is available at two farmers’ markets, a healthy collection of restaurants and natural food stores, and through our Winter CSA shares.


We are at the following farmers’ markets:

THU, 9am – 1pm, May – October

SAT, 7am – 1pm, April – November

Team

Meet the Team

Meet Beth

I grew up in rural Maine, not on a farm, but some of my favorite memories are of running and finding farm relics in the woods and presenting the school board with compost. Food and farming as a …metaphor for how we talk about other cultural and environmental issues has simply always made sense to me. And, I love the work. Over 20 years into this farming adventure, I still can’t believe it’s my daily experience.

Meet the Team

The team at Dandelion Spring is expansive and includes many meaningful threads into our community. This photo represents just one event. If you were to walk the fields or visit the market during 2022 I’d want to give you a special introduction to: Justine, Kaitlin, Charlotte, Hilary, Adriana, Julia M., Sarah, Nate, Rachel, Jess, Jules, and Michael.

Our Values

Passionate

Growing healthy, organic herbs and vegetables is our passion. Our greatest joy is providing people with produce that will awaken their senses and forge a connection between community and the land that sustains us.

Community-Oriented

We’re here to feed our community. We listen to local chefs and business owners and are inspired to accommodate their needs with our unique and diverse array of produce.

Socially Conscious

We strive to acknowledge the obstacles faced by many when it comes to accessing healthy, affordable food and land. We work to dismantle social and economic barriers and make our farm as accessible as possible.

Land-Based

Dandelion Spring Farm is located on unceded Wabanaki land, and we seek to nourish and honor this land by participating exclusively in soil-based, certified organic agriculture that will positively impact the land, the climate, and the environment as a whole.
