A Bit About the Farm
Come grow with our family as we turn to our roots and live off our own land.
In 1832, Julie's great-great-great (that's right - 3 greats!) grandfather, Edward Allen, came to the island from Ireland and the family began working the land. In the small house that still remains by our barn, the Allens raised 8 children. Over a century later, we feel a sense of pride knowing that we are carrying on a family tradition of farming the land that the Allens once did.
The Allen farm still remains today committed to providing fresh, local food using sustainable methods and organic models.
Our farming activities include maple syrup production, market-gardening using organic methods, as well as free-range meat birds, and grass-fed veal. We have fresh, brown, free-range eggs and our local Red Fife whole wheat flour will be available at our farm stand this summer.
Our goal is to provide fresh, local food using sustainable methods and organic models not only for ourselves but for our local community. Come grow with us on our journey!
