Farming in Maine began in the early 17th century, before the arrival of European settlers. While the industry has certainly changed since the early days of Native Americans and settlers, it’s still an important part of our community life and economy. Some seen today are thriving, while others appear to be in disrepair, but each has their own character indicative of the family and people who call it their own.

Throughout the state, you’ll find an array of vibrant farmer’s markets with plenty of opportunities to buy local. And, don’t let the weather scare you – many are operational all year long.

Here is our collection of the most charming farm and farming-related photos. From abundant crops to working animals to the structures themselves, these farms in Maine will make you love the country.
