Alder Brook Pig Farm is tucked in the woods
in the small town of Athens, Maine.
We specialize in raising Heritage Breed pork.
All our pigs are registered pure bred Large Blacks. This breed is best
known for its marbled meat which makes it tender, fine-textured and succulent.
It is unlike any pork you ever tasted. By raising the pigs on pasture
they don't need medication or antibiotics they receive all the vitamins
and nutrients they need from mother nature. We are bringing back the
old style pork raised on pasture—happy and never confined.
We sell half a pig or whole. If you don't have a
freezer big enough or just a small household we do sell from the freezer.
Our smoked goods can be smoked with or without nitrates. All our pork
is frozen and packaged at a USDA certified facility. We also sell weaned
piglets for 4H projects or to raise your own pork. Farm tours are available

Broad Arrow Farm uses regenerative, soil-based methods to raise pigs, lamb, poultry and eggs on pasture and in the woods of Mid-Coast Maine’s Pemaquid Peninsula. We also grow seasonal vegetables.
We sell our products directly to consumers in our on-farm store and through FarmDrop in the Portland, Maine area. We also cold-pack ship our pork and lamb products sold through our online store. Additionally, consumers can find our products in some of Maine’s finest restaurants, butcher shops and specialty grocers.
Although we are not certified organic, we use organic agricultural methods. We never use chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. We never use GMO products of any kind. We use soy-free, organic feed for all of our livestock—except our lambs and ewes whtich are 100% grass-fed. We have reclaimed more than 30 acres of dense woods, converting them into silvopasture from which all our livestock species can derive plant-based nutrition.
We run a year-round, farrow-to-finish pig operation incorporating heritage breeds (Large Black, GOS, Hereford, Duroc as well as Mangalitsa and Kune Kune) that thrive on forage. Our pigs have free access to pasture and woods all day, everyday. We employ rotational grazing methods to maximize the amount of nutrition our herd derives from forage and to promote soil health.
We chose the Katahdin breed of sheep because it subsists on the more diverse forage environment of our silvopasture. Katahdins also shine as mothers, regularly giving multiple lambs and producing abundant milk.
Our seasonal meat-bird operation includes chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese. We keep a year-round chicken laying flock for on-farm egg sales. Our poultry is processed humanely on-farm and sold in our farm store.
We grow seasonal vegetables from organic seed, using organic compost, fertilizer and mulch when needed, and sell them in our farm store.

Sebago Lake Ranch is located 1 mile from the
South shore of Sebago Lake on the Gorham/Standish line. We also farm
in other parts of
Gorham and Standish. We have been raising beef under a Natural label since
the 1990s and switched to a no-grain, grass-only diet in 2006.
We have practiced management intensive grazing since 1999 and worked with the
USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service for many years on
projects to improve soil, water and air quality. As the manager of Sebago Lake
Ranch I farm on a professional level. I have a BS from Cornell University in
Animal Science and have attended various schools and seminars on Grass-Fed beef.
I also have an extensive library on the subject, constantly staying up to
date with the newest knowledge and technology.
Animals are humanely, safely and efficiently handled with a chute system
purchased in 2006. We have been certified with the Maine Beef Quality Assurance
program. We use a local abattoir that is federally USDA inspected and packages
the meat in cryovac plastic. Right now we are limited to a seasonal production
model because we want to achieve the maximum levels of Omega-3 and CLA that
can be found in an animal finished on green grass. You may also find us at
the Portland Farmers Market in Deering Oaks Park, May–November from 7–noon, and at the Sebago Brewing Company at their Portland, Scarborough, and Gorham locations.
We also produce/sell Maple Syrup.
