Valley View Farm is located on Sopers Mill Rd in Auburn, Maine. The farm consists of about 75 acres at our main location and another forty acres a short distance away at "Tuckaway Farm". Until 2007 a great deal of the land was in tree growth. That year most of it was harvested in preparation of increasing the pasture and garden acreage. We also grow a limited amount of produce at gardens in Yarmouth and Falmouth.
The pig pen is a two wire electric enclosure that gets moved about to ensure the pigs stay busy tilling our gardens for next growing season. We have a portable shelter that moves along with the enclosure to ensure the pigs comfort.
Most of the larger animals stay in a paddock / pasture located south of the house. They have the lower 35 acres to graze about freely.
One of the two 80 foot greenhouses has been transformed into a chicken coop. This coop houses almost 400 chickens, some guinea hens and a few heritage breed turkeys. These birds free range around the farm and come and go in their coop most anytime they choose. In addition, we have lots of geese and ducks running all over the farm free
ranging. We have added four peacocks that we let roam around as well.
