Maine Farms


Rock Island Farm, Orono, Maine (near Bangor)


Rock Island Farm is a small family farm 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). Feed hay is $4 per bale at the barn. Mulch hay is $3 per bale at the barn. Please contact us to arrange a time to come by. and directions. This hay was baled between the last week of June and July 14, 2015.

There is no minimum. Please feel free to inspect the hay.

Feed hay is stored in a barn. Mulch hay is stored in a barn, or under a 3-sided overhang off a barn, and should spread well.

Contact. 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.

Fresh, local vegetables

There is a small, help-yourself farm stand along the road, and veggies are same-day fresh. Money goes in the blue can. 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".
