Farm to School Program, General Food System Education
Come Visit Us!
The Morris Farm Trust is both a working farm and an educational resource for the communities of mid coast Maine. Our 50 acres of pasture and farmland support a Univeristy of Maine Extension Master Gardener Demonstration Garden, the Morris Farm Wiscasset Primary School Garden, Wiscasset Community Gardens, resident farm: Wandering Root Farm. The remaining 10 acres of our land is wooded and features an interpretive trail that connects to the Wiscasset Town Trails, and a yurt in the woods.
All of our programs rely on participation from trained community volunteers and utilize the farm's land and animals to foster respect for the earth and to instill a sense of shared responsibility for the wise stewardship of natural resources. The Morris Farm offers fieldtrips to provide hands-on, real life educational experiences for children of all levels and academic ability as well as lectures, events and demonstrations for both children and adults. The farm's programs for adults range from gardening workshops to seminars by advocates of sustainable agriculture and practitioners of traditional handcrafts and farmer-to-farmer training and information exchanges.
The store offers a selection of local food products including raw milk, farm fresh eggs, cheese, seasonal produce, local preserves, frozen meat, and fresh bread delivered on Saturday mornings. The Farm Store hosts a Friday Fish Drop from Port Clyde Fresh Catch. You can order from their selection of fresh and frozen fish products on their website, and pick up your order in our store on Friday afternoons. Orders for fish must be placed by Wednesday no later than 6pm.
