Conservation Farm Tour
Cost is $15 per person - pre-registration is required due to limited seating.
McNally Farm: Kerry and Karen McNally grow and sell diversified vegetables and potatoes at a farmstand in Patten and provide PYO highbush blueberries and raspberries on their farm.
Gardiner Farms: Mike and Jane Ricci farm Jane's family farm in Stacyville, growing vegetables on a rotation with cover crops and green manures. They sell their vegetables from an on-farm store and each Tuesday at Millinocket farmers market.
Cummings Farm: John and Joyce Cummings are 3rd generation dairy farmers in Stacyville, milking 80 cows and growing grain such as corn and alfalfa for feed. The Cummings have employed such conservation measures as strip cropping on their fields for many years.
