Bar Harbor Farm grows 60 varieties of MOFGA certified organic vegetables for restaurants, markets and 150 households on Mount Desert Island. They provide local islanders with organic, delicious and nourishing vegetables, produced with the highest standards in farming practices.
In collaboration with Maine Coast Heritage Trust, and with the support of many friends and professionals, they purchased the old Gilbert Farm on Gilbert Farm Road. This 50 acres is now preserved, with agricultural and nature easements, as farmland forever. The 15 acres of tillable soils are considered ‘agricultural soils of statewide significance’. They are honored with the opportunity to preserve a historic farm and continue the tradition of providing local produce to the Island.
Bar Harbor Farm offers several CSA (Community Support Agricultural) shares each growing season.
