Maine Farms


 

Rock Island Farm, Orono, Maine (near Bangor)

Description

Small family farm of 62 acres, located on Route 2 just north of Veazie and Bangor, and not far from Route 95. We want to maintain and improve some of Orono's last remaining farmland, using sustainable practices. Our goal is to grow a small business. We also want to maintain some field as bird nesting habitat (see bobolinks off-site).

Grass hay (square bales) 2014

Mulch hay available ($2.50/bale at the barn).

Contact. info@rockislandfarm.com or 866-0458.

Other places to get hay. See the Maine Hay Directory from UM Cooperative Extension for hay producers/sellers. Blue Seal Feeds & Needs in Bangor also usually has some hay.

Pre-sales. We prefer to sell hay after it is baled and stored (once we have it in the barn). That way, we know the quality of the hay we are selling, and we don't risk promising something we can't deliver.

Fresh, local vegetables

We're open when the umbrella is open.

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".
