Ararat Farms, located in Lincolnville, Maine, is a highly diversified small scale farm committed to organic & regenerative farming practices. The property encompasses hundreds of acres (mainly wooded), with about a dozen acres in fields, pastures and gardens. Many of the farm activities take place on a ridge above pitcher pond which offers splendid views. While the farm has been a part of the community for generations, (with many different iterations), we currently are in an exciting period of revitalization, with a lot of expansion, burgeoning ideas and a strong work team.
Currently we cultivate around dozen garden plots comprising roughly 2 acres, which are in transition to no-till and low till practices. These garden beds consist of market veggies and fruits, annual and perennial herbs (medicinal and culinary), upland rice and cover crops. We plan to open up a few more acres this year, expand our production and increase our grain growing capacity.
