Welcome to Kilby Ridge Farm

Welcome to Kilby Ridge Farm. We are a sustainable farm on the coast of Maine way . . . way downeast. Am hoping friends and customers will stop by here often to check out our progress as the farm grows. We have high hopes for this year. Not only are we expecting a very large crop of Icelandic lambs in the spring but will be hatching out and pasturing many more of our Wyandotte chickens and Narraganset turkeys. Welsh Harlequin ducks will be pastured around our new pond starting in the late spring.

The farm shop will open up this year once our 1767 dated ell is restored in the spring. We will be selling seasonal vegetables, fiber and yarn from our Icelandic sheep, eggs and our Wyandotte chickens (Maine State Inspected from the COOP in Monmouth, Maine). Although we are not certified organic - all of our produce, poultry and lamb are raised without pesticides, hormones and soy. Our lambs never eat grain and are raised on pasture, hay and finished with apples and apple pomace from over 500 heirloom apple trees which grow on our farm.

I am hoping to share our day to day farm adventures, tips on animal husbandry, my own version of "permiculture", cooking, and possibly articles on the local food movement and "food politics".

Buy local and eat well:)
