About Marr Pond Farm
We believe in farming without synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, and back that commitment up with third party certification by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, the oldest organic farming association in the country.
We believe in healthy, nutritious food grown in rich living soils.
We strive to develop diverse farm eco-systems that provide habitat for native beneficial insects.
We aim to improve the water and carbon holding capacity of our soil every year.
We grow MOFGA-certified organic vegetables and herbs with an emphasis on soil health and sustainable management practices. We include cover cropping, composting, and reduced tillage to conserve natural resources and promote biodiversity. We never use synthetic chemicals on our farm. Instead, we rely on natural pest predators, crop rotation, and organic materials to help keep pests and plant diseases in check.
We also strive to strengthen and carry on the local traditions of agriculture and land stewardship, while providing educational resources by way of workshops and community involvement.
