River Basin Farms

Farm Sugar Shack/Maple Syrup

We work with nature as much as possible to provide for our animals and crops. What started out as homesteading has turned into a passion. In 2020, we had solarp anels installed and have swapped out oil dependency for a hybrid hot water heater. With our net zero goals, we have incorporated an electric trimmer and an electric chainsaw to do tree pruning and brush cutting.

We work hard to produce fruits and vegetables, and have an extensive orchard that has been expanded every year since 2010 when we planted our first plum trees. Currently, we have over 70 fruit trees with every tree being a different variety! Grapes, berries, nuts, honey, hops, and maple syrup are all part of our operations. We have limited varieties in stock during the season and quickly sell out.

We are always planning ahead and adding more. Right now, we are plotting an area to start seasonal crop rotations. 

On our 5 acre farm in Passadumkeag, out free-ranged chickens that are claimed to be the tastiest from our customers' experience.

Please call to find availability, to set up delivery, or stop by our farm stand when in season.

Sugar Shack/Maple Syrup Activities

In 2020, we purchased Passadumkeag Maple and its equipment. We brought it to its new home at River Basin Farms. We have added maple syrup to our farm's offerings. Maple syrup will be for sale in quart jugs. Although we are not offering a Maine Maple Sunday tour in 2022, we might include Maine Maple Sunday in 2023.
