We are Amy and Alex Bradstreet and we are the most recent stewards of this ancestral farm located in midcoast Maine.
Our Bradstreet ancestors have been farming this same land since 1799. Our current farmhouse was built by Alex's great-great grandfather in 1861. The farmhouse was gutted and remodeled in 1975. We have been working to restore sustainability, longevity, and comfort to the farmhouse since 2013.
Duck & Chicken Eggs
We currently have two Khaki Campbell duck hens, four recently adopted Buff Orpington duck hens, and 22 heritage breed and Red Star chicken hens. Both flocks are free-range and fed an organic diet. We offer eggs for sale on the farm, March - October.
In the future, we hope to expand our poultry keeping, as well as add heritage breed pigs, and possibly goats and geese to our barnyard. All four of us have attended bee school and plan to have hives by summer 2019.
125-acres, set on Sheepscot Lake on the south and bordered by Mud Pond on the north, with Linscott Brook running through the land. The last maintained open pasture ended in the 1950s and our goal is to restore at least some acreage to pasture. In addition, we maintain woods, tap trees, plant firs, plant herb, flower, and vegetable gardens, preserve shore land and wildlife habitats while using permaculture and keeping organic practices.
The Farm Renovation Continues
