Rock Island Farm, Orono, Maine (near Bangor)
Rock Island Farm is a small family farm (62 acres) located on Main Street (Rt 2) in Orono, just north of Veazie and Bangor, and not far from Route 95.
We produce hay and a small amount of vegetables using sustainable practices. We also try to maintain some field as bird nesting habitat for bobolinks (off-site link).
Grass hay (square bales). Mulch hay for sale -- $3 per bale at the barn.
Contact. firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-0458. It is easiest to reach us by email in the summer.
Other places to get hay. See the Maine Hay Directory from UM Cooperative Extension for hay producers/sellers.
Pre-sales. We prefer to sell hay after it is baled and stored. That way, we know the quality of the hay we are selling, and we don't risk promising something we can't deliver.
Farm stand. Farm stand is on hold for 2015, although we're still keeping up the vegetable plots.
Please support your local farms (including the little ones).
The farm name -- Someone took great care years ago to clear the hayfield of rocks, leaving some piled in the middle of the field. Shrubs grew over the pile, and the previous owner called this spot "Rock Island".
