Hello, and welcome to the on-line home of Summit Springs Farm!

From 2008 until 2013, Summit Springs Farm was a certified organic vegetable farm with a thriving CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program that received strong support from our neighbors in Poland and the surrounding communities. As we move on to our next adventure, we hope to pass this amazing property along to other like-minded folks. The potential here is unlimited, for all manner of farming, for recreation, for forestry, etc. Please use the links above to learn more about the history of the farm, to view photos, and to browse through the farm blog (inactive now, but a great way to get a sense of what we were doing here on the farm….more fun photos and videos, too).

  4. Are you interested in presenting Grow Your Own Organic Garden at the Bridgton Library on April 6th?

    Hello! Not sure we’d be able to squeeze that into our schedule, but give the farm a call…we’d like to hear more about it! 998-2196

    Hi, I was searching on MOFGA for a farm where I can volunteer and learn.
    I work part-time but have some weekdays free. I have no experience but am resourceful and a hard worker. Thank You. Please contact me if you are interested. I have a very diverse background despite no farming experience.

    I have to tell you that you have changed my eating habits in the last few weeks and opened me up to all kinds of great tastes. Made pesto with the garlic scape .. which by the way, I had no idea what it was! Now on to the beets .. yes, I only had the slimy canned kind as a kid, so I’m looking forward to trying the real thing! Thanks !

  8. John says:

    You’re welcome! Glad to see that the creative juices are flowing and that you are discovering new ways of eating. Be sure to check out our recipes archive here on the site for ideas!

    Someone at Terri Young’s yoga mentioned you may be building a labyrinth. True?
    I’d love that.
    My brother Bill Allanach is enjoying your produce and shared your site.
    Thanks.
    Mary

    A labyrinth? Well, that would be awesome! A labyrinth hasn’t been discussed, but we do plan to make a meditation garden here at some point. We’d hoped to start work on it this past spring but ran out of free time as the season began to roll along. Stay tuned!

    I recently helped a friend build a labryinth in Naples and I think she plans to open it to the public.

    My name is Bill Keeler and I am the librarian archivist for the Rochester Historical Society in Rochester NY. I am doing research for an article on the Sibley squash that was introduced by Hiram Sibley of this city. I noticed that a member of your organization is a friend of Katrina and Hiram Sibley who still grow this squash. I was wondering if you could either pass on this e-mail or give me their address so I can contact them for information about the squash and perhaps an exchange of information on Hiram. Thank you.

  13. John says:

    Hi, Bill! Katarina and Hiram are neighbors of ours, and I’ve passed along your message to them. Good luck with your article!
