Winterwood Farm

Winterwood Farm, which was established in the 1960s, has rich soil and sits on an aquifer that produces 90 percent of Freeport’s drinking water. The rolling green pastures hold a home, two barns, fenced-in areas for horses, and several large oak trees. For the most part, the space is wide open.  Freeport Conservation Trust holds an agricultural conservation easement on the farm, protecting it from being developed.

Maine’s Land for Maine’s Future program and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service awarded money for the conservation of Winterwood Farm. Maine Farmland Trust and Maine Water Company donated money towards the easement as well and the good sum of money was raised donated by individual donors.

Winterwood Farm is not open to the public, but is preserved as a forever farm and cannot be developed otherwise.

Winter Hill Farm

Winter Hill Farm was started nearly a decade ago by Jim Stampone and his wife Kate LeRoyer. It was their dedication to the Randall Lineback breed which led them to build the small dairy and creamery at Winter Hill. Jim and Kate decided to retire from milking cows in 2011. Upon their retirement, Winter Hill was purchased by two families dedicated to the preservation of farmland in the midcoast area. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Freeport Conservation Trust, Winter Hill Farm is now permanently protected with a forever farm agricultural easement, held by Freeport Conservation Trust.
