The Buckle Farm is a small, diversified farm and orchard located in the rural town of Unity, which was settled on the traditional territory of the Wabanaki Confederacy.
The farm sits on a gently sloping ridge and has an orchard of mixed heirloom apple varieties. Jim and Hannah produce certified organic produce for wholesale buyers in Maine and the greater Boston area. The farm is also GAP certified, ensuring that all of the produce leaving the farm has been raised, harvest and handled with end-user and worker health and safety in mind.
Running a business based on building healthy soil and food is at turns incredibly challenging and deeply rewarding. Jim and Hannah are grateful for the support of the chefs, CSA members, distributors and market customers that have supported the farm over the years, as well as for the hand-on help that they have received from friends, family and fellow farmers.
