The Boatyard Grill Located at 13 East Blue Hill Road, Blue Hill, ME, 04614 The Boatyard Grill is located on the grounds of the Weber Cove boat yard, at 13 East Blue Hill Road in downtown Blue Hill. It doesn't open until late June, because they have to move boats to make room for the restaurant. A great place to eat lobster, after dinner guests join the communal campfire and have drinks together. 2016 hours are: Thursday through Monday for lunch and dinner beginning at 12 noon. "We are closed Tuesday and Wednesday which means you can enjoy one of the other great establishments in the area! See you after June 23rd" Anneliese

The Brooklin Inn Located at 22 Reach Road in Brooklin, ME, 20 minutes from the Bungalow, is a restaurant, owned and operated by Chip Angell, a one-time Windjammer captain, who is happy to spin yarns with you for hours! (Of course, being in the yacht charter business, we had a lot to talk about!) Maybe we were privileged, but Such is the tradition of these Maine sea-going captains. Here in Chip you see a sea captain in action. Dining at the Brooklin Inn is an organic local experience: The Dining Room and Pub menu (open 7 days in summer, 5 days in winter) is eclectically organic and features organic produce and organic Maine-raised beef, lamb and poultry. Our specialty is fresh fish, caught in our waters. They keep a fire going in the fireplace during winter. Check out the Scottish Pub down stairs in the basement afterwards. There's a surprise in store!

Acadia Jordan Pond House Located at 2928 Park Loop Road, Seal Harbor, ME. My grandmother used to drive all the way from Blue Hill to Seal Harbor just to have popovers and tea with friends at Jordan Pond, 1 Park Loop Road, Seal Harbor. Such is the institution that Jordan Pond (a restaurant) has become, because it has been around for at least 100 years and was probably the only restaurant (or at least the first restaurant) in Acadia National Park for many years. The owners have not let slip the incredible food that it is famous for, from chowders to all manner of tastes, uniquely Maine.... There's a dog friendly quarter outside.... Many dining rooms.... Tour buses.... Lovely gardens, stately grounds.... Jordan Pond....it's famous!

Shopping
Belfast Known for Neighborhood & Shopping Incorporated in 1853, the town of Belfast developed into a shipbuilding center, producing hundreds of three, four and five masted schooners. Materials for wooden boat construction were shipped down the Penobscot River from Bangor, the lumber capital of North America during the later 19th century. Shipbuilders became wealthy, and built the Federal, Greek Revival and Italianate mansions and civic architecture for which the city is noted, including the 1818 First Church by master-builder Samuel French, and the 1857 Custom House and Post Office by noted architect Ammi B. Young. Wooden ship construction would fade about 1900, but with the advent of refrigeration, the local economy shifted to harvesting seafood, including lobsters, scallops, sardines, herrings and mackerel for the Boston and New York markets. The town is laid out on a grid with many beautiful houses. The waterfront has lots of enticing shops and the Colonial Movie Theater, 163 High Street. Coyote Moon, 54 Main Street, is a "yummy" woman's clothing store. An interesting environmental store is The Green Store, located at 71 Main Street. Chase's Daily, 96 Main Street, offers an excellent vegetarian menu. There is a bicycle/walking path that hugs the shore along the edge of town. 45 minutes from Blue Hill, just before you arrive in Belfast, find Perry's Nut House, 45 Searsport Avenue, along Route 1; it's been in operation for at least 100 years. It sells jokes.... The Angler's Restaurant, 215 East Main Street, (Route 1) is immensely popular, judging by the number of cars out front. The town of Bucksport also has a pedestrian/bike path along its waterfront.

Fort Knox and Penobscot Narrows Observatory Located at 711 Fort Knox Road, Prospect, ME This is an interesting place, because right next to the brand new, beautiful, modern Penobscot Narrows bridge, built last year over the Penobscot River in a place where the river narrows and branches off into three directions around Verona Island leading from Bangor into the sea is an incredibly old fort known as Fort Knox. Maine was repeatedly involved in northeast border disputes with British Canada, and the area between Castine and the rich lumber city of Bangor was invaded and occupied by the British during the American Revolution and the War of 1812. Despite the Webster-Ashburton Treaty of 1842, Fort Knox was established in 1844 to protect the Penobscot River valley against a possible future British naval incursion. Both fort and bridge, thanks to the observatory at top with elevator, are open to the public for sightseeing. Located on Route 1 just outside of Bucksport, 25 minutes from the Bungalow, Fort Knox is Open May to early October until sunset; pets welcome. $5/adult - children free. tel 469 6553 Fort Knox does offer Scary Night on Halloween....

Holt House Located at 3 Water Street in downtown Blue Hill Historic house Visit the historic Holt House at 3 Water Street in downtown Blue Hill. Open July 6 to September 14, Tuesdays & Fridays 1 - 4 pm, as well as Saturdays 11 am to 2 pm. Free. The Holt House was built in 1815 by Jeremiah Thorndike Holt, grandson of Nicholas Holt who brought Blue Hill’s fifth family from Andover, Massachusetts in 1765. Jeremiah was one of the first to locate at the head of the bay, in what is now the center of Blue Hill village. He was an influential businessman who kept a store, engaged in shipping, and became the town’s second postmaster. After Jeremiah died in 1832, his widow turned the house into the town’s only inn and tavern. In 1851 their son, Thomas Jefferson Napoleon Bonaparte Holt and his family occupied the house. It stayed in the family for over a hundred years. The Blue Hill Historical Society bought the Holt House and made it their headquarters in 1970. The Holt House contains period furniture and clothing, photographs, town records, and memorabilia from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. Of special interest is the Children’s Room, containing toys, clothing, dolls and games. In addition, old tools, a sleigh, carriages and wagons are on display in the Carriage House.

Visit the Farnsworth Museum and Wyeth Center, 90 minutes from the Bungalow, located at 16 Museum Street in Rockland, Maine. We all know who Andrew Wyeth is and that he painted "Christina's World," but did you know that Andrew Wyeth's father was an artist too and a friend of Norman Rockwell? The Farnsworth Museum sprawls and has lots to offer. The Farnsworth Art Museum offers an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy a comprehensive collection of American art related to Maine. Lucy Copeland Farnsworth, last surviving member of her family and the daughter of a successful Rockland lime merchant who founded the local water company, instructed in her will that a building she owned on Main Street “be put into condition to serve as an art gallery,” which along with a library and the mid-Victorian house she grew up in were to be open to the public and named after her father. The Wyeth Center at the Farnsworth Art Museum is one of only two centers in the country dedicated to the three generations of Wyeths: N.C., Andrew, and James Wyeth. Afterwards, visit the Olsen House, my favorite!, on Hawthorne Point Road in Cushing, Maine, 30 minutes beyond. This is where Andrew Wyeth painted 'Christina's World." Call ahead to make reservations to tour the Farnsworth Homestead. Telelphone: 207-596-6457

2 1/5 hours from the Bungalow, 127 miles via Route 9, (fastest route), Roosevelt Campobello International Park is located on Campobello Island, New Brunswick, Canada just across the international border from Lubec on the easternmost tip of Maine. The focal point of the Park, the Franklin D. Roosevelt summer cottage, and the Park’s Visitor Centre, is open from late May through mid October (Columbus Day) - from 9 am to 5 pm 7 days a week. Campobello was the "beloved" summer retreat for the Roosevelt family, shaping Franklin into a great leader, and encouraging Eleanor to become an independent woman. FDR and his family spent summer vacations on their beloved Campobello Island over a period of fifty-six years. Visitors are welcomed to the Park in the Edmund S. Muskie Visitor Centre, where panels, displays, and a short video interpret the Roosevelt story from the time Franklin Roosevelt and his parents first visited Campobello through his battle with polio, his presidency, and the establishment of the Park. Next, visit the house. Franklin Roosevelt's magnificent 34-room residence is the centerpiece of Roosevelt Campobello International Park. FDR’s “cottage” has been preserved, and is almost exactly as it was in 1920, the summer before Franklin was stricken with polio. At your own pace, tour both floors of the 34-room memorabilia filled cottage. Guides stationed throughout the home offer interpretation and answer questions about the house, its historic furnishings, and the family. A ramp provides easy access to the first floor. Next, have tea with Elinor. We'll share the stories of Eleanor Roosevelt, with complimentary tea and homemade cookies. Expert guides tell of Eleanor Roosevelt's life on Campobello Island, and of her years of activism and public service, all accompanied by Eleanor's favourite blend of tea and a variety of delicious cookies. The linen-clothed tables and fine china recall the style and ambience of a bygone era. See a special exhibit of rare photos of Eleanor on Campobello Island and a sample of her My Day Columns. Come reflect on the simple joys of Eleanor’s long and fascinating life. Unfortunately, although we have visited Campobello many times, we have never had tea with Elinor. There are only two seatings daily, first-come, first-served, limited to 20 people..... 11:00am ADT / 10:00am EDT 3:00pm ADT / 2:00pm EDT I understand they've opened a new TEA ROOM, but that too has only 2 seatings daily: 1:00pm ADT / 12:00pm EDT 4:00pm ADT / 3:00pm EDT For this tea room, you may reserve in advance, but you can book only online: http://www.fdr.net/tea-with-eleanor.php Or telephone: +1 506-752-2922 Admission to the Park (including the Cottage) is FREE.

Jonathan Fisher House Located at 44 Mines Rd, Blue Hill, ME, 04614 5 minutes from the Bungalow, The Johnathan Fisher House or Homestead is an 1814 historic house museum. Jonathan Fisher (1768-1847) was the first settled Congregational minister of the small village of Blue Hill, Maine. Fisher was also an artist, farmer, scientist, mathematician, surveyor, and writer of prose and poetry. Today, at the charming homestead he designed in 1814 for his growing family, you may see the life’s work of this ‘Versatile Yankee’. The house contains remarkable survivals from the Fisher era, including: Remarkable art work, including paintings, drawings, watercolors, and woodblock prints Furniture he made for his family and others An extensive library Remarkable home-made ‘alarm clock, with its beautiful dial telling of time in five languages Superb homemade surveying tools A rare camera obscura that he made to aid him in drawing Outside, a recreation of his 1820 orchard is in progress, using Fisher’s original plans, including a surviving 200 year old pear tree. Open to the Public early July through mid October Thursdays through Saturdays from 1 to 4 pm. Free. Douglass Copper Mine Copper was found along Mines Road in western Blue Hill in 1876. Because of the quality of the ore and the prospect of shipping it out easily from the harbor (perhaps not in winter) a major mining boom ensued. Speculation ran rampant, fueled by visiting experts. By 1881, the companies began to fail because of an unstable market and management issues.

Be prepared for a tour through time and cultures as you enter the Wilson Museum Campus, a series of buildings begun in 1921 by geologist Dr. John Howard Wilson to house collections gathered around the world and close to home. Here you will see rocks and fossils from the earliest geologic times and will follow humankind's advances in tool-making from pre-history through Castine's rich local history. You can wend your way across continents and among indigenous cultures through displays from Africa, the Americas and Bali, to name just a few. In the John Perkins House, step back in time to colonial Castine to meet the Perkins family and learn about the generations who lived here. A tour of this home is guided by a knowledgeable docent and on special days visitors may have the opportunity to watch cooking done over the open hearth in the kitchen. A step back in time would not be complete without a visit to the campus hub where craftsmen demonstrate the tools and techniques of their trades, including a woodturner and a blacksmith. Once you've been to The Village Blacksmith and seen what fire can create, take a peek into the Pump House Display to learn about Castine's early firefighting history. Push the button and watch in wonder as the gears and levers make the alarm bell ring!

People of the First Light Exhibit at the Abbe Museum Date: Sunday May 01, 2016 - Saturday Dec 31, 2016 Time: 9 am - 4 pm Description: Wabanaki people, their history, and their culture, represent at least a 12,000-year-long experience in their homeland, which includes the Acadia National Park region. This continuous narrative for the Wabanaki people—a historic confederacy between the Abenaki, Maliseet, Micmac, Passamaquoddy, and Penobscot—offers an extraordinary story of resilience with contemporary meaning and relevance. People of the First Light, the Abbe Museum’s new, permanent exhibit, will occupy 2,100 square feet of the Museum’s main gallery. In the center of the exhibit, a 20-foot sculptural ash tree will offer a place to sit, reflect, and listen to Wabanaki stories and music. People of the First Light will use design and content to bring you into the Wabanaki universe. The cyclical nature of time will be strongly reflected in the design of the exhibit, and time depth will be presented in a non-linear pattern. While the exhibit is considered permanent (15-20-year cycle), it will be constructed so that topics can be easily updated to reflect changing events, and the evolving conversations with Wabanaki advisors will guide updates as needed. The exhibit also includes a brief history of the Museum’s founding and its close relationship to the founding of Acadia National Park. You will find your experience relevant and engaging each time you visit People of the First Light! The Museum will be closed through the end of April 2016 while we build and install this new core exhibit. Summer Hours: May 1 through October 31, 2016 Open Daily, 10 am – 5 pm Winter Hours: November 1, 2016 through April 30, 2017 Thursday through Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm Please call or visit our website for ticketing information.

Parks & Nature
Blue Hill Mountain Trail Located at Mountain Road, Blue Hill, ME, 04614 Stunning Views The top of Blue Hill Mountain offers stunning views of Blue Hill Bay, Mount Desert, and Islands. Bring buckets for blueberries! Blue Hill Mountain inspired Robert McCloskey's children's story, "Blueberries for Sal." Please carry a stone to the top so that the hill grows into a mountain. There used to be a fire tower at top (and a "camp," a hut, for the fireman to live in), because in 1948, the whole of Mount Desert burned to the ground and there was no way for anybody to get off the peninsula.... It was devastating. The town of Ellsworth also burned to the ground once.... The watch tower is not needed nowadays, because modern technology has replaced the task.... During the 1960s when the fire man was in the tower at the top, people used to climb the 8 flights of stairs to visit him, and they would write their names in the guest book. Those guest books are still in the Blue Hill Historical Society's office today, where old timers can find their names. There are several trails to the top of Blue Hill Mountain, some short and steep, others "longer" but more gradual... By longer, I mean 45 minutes... By short, I mean 20 minutes....and steep! But what a view! Pick blueberries along the way. To get to the trail from the Bungalow, turn right onto Route 15 North in front of the library; in 200 yards, turn left up Pleasant Street, which is also Route 15 North; after 1 mile, turn Right onto Mountain Road... Follow for 1/2 mile.... Soon you'll see some parked cars along the road which is the trail head for the longer trail to the top, but we don't stop there... We carry on further to the actual parking lot at the top of the hill on the right....it's a dirt parking lot in a field....to pick up the short but steep Hayes Trail to the top of Blue Hill that takes 20 minutes. The path starts in a beautiful, big meadow.... You can also walk to the "longer" trail head from the village. Park on the street near the Post Office, walk to the back of the Post Office, find the rock stairs between EBS (hardware store next door) and the post office and pick up the trail. It's a flat, well-worn trail through apple trees and oaks that takes 20 minutes to get to Mountain Road.... Turn Right if you prefer to take the short steep Hayes Trail to the top of the mountain.

Follow for 1/2 mile.... Soon you'll see some parked cars along the road which is the trail head for the longer trail to the top, but we don't stop there... We carry on further to the actual parking lot at the top of the hill on the right....it's a dirt parking lot in a field....to pick up the short but steep Hayes Trail to the top of Blue Hill that takes 20 minutes. The path starts in a beautiful, big meadow.... You can also walk to the "longer" trail head from the village. Park on the street near the Post Office, walk to the back of the Post Office, find the rock stairs between EBS (hardware store next door) and the post office and pick up the trail. It's a flat, well-worn trail through apple trees and oaks that takes 20 minutes to get to Mountain Road.... Turn Right if you prefer to take the short steep Hayes Trail to the top of the mountain.

The Reversing Falls on Falls Bridge Road in South Blue Hill is 5 minutes from the Bungalow (turn left out of the Bungalow onto Parker Point road, then Left at the end onto Falls Bridge Road; it's about 1/4 mile up) and is a neat place where the incoming tide squeezes through a Narrow to flood a large "Salt" Pond..... Salt Pond is actually enormous, covering many square acres, miles from the sea. You'd see it as fresh water from that angle, but in fact, they harvest shellfish in there. The water ripples in fast to fill up the pond, but at high and low tides, it slacks off and becomes tranquil. Now the rushing water reverses direction and flows out again. Submerged rocks force the water to buckle, yet time after time I've heard stories where children (ours!) shoot the rapids in the Whaler and head up it under the bridge at full speed.... I've seen kayakers brave the cold waters and find "the exact spot" where they can sit "stationary" and ride the rapids for hours "in place". Now I'm seeing on YouTube people surfing the falls... My uncles as children used to walk the girders above the bridge. Oi Veigh! There's a little bit of adventure associated with the Reversing Falls. It's also the place in Blue Hill where the first Scottish settlers landed and made their home. There's a place to have a picnic on the shoreline and to sunbathe. Parking is on the side of the road.

The Blue Hill Town Park, located at the end of Water Street in Blue Hill village is where the Flash in the Pan steel band plays most Monday evenings during July and August that you can hear at the Bungalow.

Schoodic Point, located at the southern tip of Schoodic Peninsula in Winter Harbor, Maine, provides one of the best places to view pounding surf during rough seas as well as stunning views of Cadillac Mountain to the West. It is also one of the best places to view diabase dikes. These are large veins of dark basalt that forced their way through the older granite along the Schoodic shoreline. No other location offers a view quite like this as well as a stunning view of Cadillac Mountain lit up by a rising sun or in a glow from the sunset. This is a place where you can sit and relax for a while as you breathe the clean air and watch the waves come in off the Gulf of Maine to the South. Bring a blanket, a picnic basket, and some chairs and set-up your viewing and chill-out spot. You will be glad that you did!

Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, at 1,530 feet (466 meters), is the highest point along the North Atlantic seaboard and the first place to view sunrise in the United States from October 7 through March 6. It is one of over 20 mountains on Mount Desert Island (MDI), Maine that were pushed up by earth's tectonic and volcanic forces millions of years ago. Were it not for the once enormous glaciers that sheared off their tops, they would be even higher than what we see today. Cadillac Mountain has a coastal location. It is within the municipality of Bar Harbor, Maine, a popular coastal resort known for its unique blend of a Down East Maine fishing village combined with quiet community charm. The town's shopping district can easily be seen from the eastern side of the mountain and is particularly striking to view when there is a large cruise ship in the harbor. Cadillac Mountain is by far the most dominant land feature on MDI and for many miles along the Maine coast. The scenic Summit Road officially opened in 1931. It meanders along the North and eastern side of the mountain for approximately 3.5 miles (5.6 km) until reaching the top. There are several small observation points along the roadway that offer prime viewing opportunities. To the East, one greets the sunrise over Schoodic Peninsula on the mainland. There are several islands in between and immediately off the coast from Mount Desert Island such as Sheep Porcupine and Bald Porcupine. To the Northeast is the business district of Bar Harbor. To the North is Trenton. To the South is Islesford. To the Southwest is Southwest Harbor which is particularly beautiful in the late evening as the lights come on. To the West is Eagle Lake, Blue Hill Mountain and, of course, the setting sun. And, all around you is pink granite with forests of spruce and pitch pine combined with tiny subalpine plants. One of the most striking surface features you notice on Cadillac Mountain are the deep scratches or gouges in the bare granite that seem to follow north south directions. The reason is quite simple. This area has undergone millions of years of climate changes during which there were several enormous continental glaciers that squashed the land and sheered off mountaintops. The last glacier retreated about 18,000 years ago, was over 1 mile high, and reached as far as 400 miles out to sea. It was so powerful that it actually shifted the orientation of the mountains from east-west to north-south. As difficult as it may be for some to imagine, the geological evidence is all around us. Simply take a long look at the map of Mount Desert Island. Note the elongated lakes and ponds, even the shape of Somes Sound. Look further at the shape of the out islands such as Sheep Porcupine to the left. One side has a gentle slope. The other has a steep slope with many deposits. Cadillac Mountain was named after the French explorer and adventurer, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac in 1918. Prior to this, it was known as Green Mountain. People are usually surprised to learn that, starting in 1883, there was a slow cog railway excursion to the summit called the Green Mountain Cog Railway. This started at Eagle Lake on the western side of the mountain and made the 1.1 mile (1.77 km) climb all the way to the summit where the Green Mountain House Hotel was awaiting the arrival of visitors and overnight guests. Unfortunately, the seasonal railway had a relatively short run and operations were terminated in 1890. The equipment was then sold and shipped to Mount Washington Cog Railway of New Hampshire. There is a gift store at the top, and parking is very difficult at sunset.

Bar Harbor Shore Path There is a picturesque and historic Shore Path you should walk on at least one morning during your visit or anytime during the day. The path, originally created around 1880, begins near the town pier and Agamont Park in Bar Harbor, and continues for about 1/2 a mile along the eastern shore of town. Off shore to the east are the four Porcupine Islands which are especially beautiful at sunrise. Directly north of the town pier is Bar Island. This island is accessible by foot at low tide and provides a spectacular view of the town of Bar Harbor with the mountains behind it. Be sure to plan ahead and allow enough time so that you do not get stranded or wet!

This is the most challenging and well known hiking trail in Acadia National Park with an exposed and almost vertical 1,000 foot climb up the east face of Champlain Mountain. The trail is only recommended for physically fit and experienced hikers who have no fear of heights. The Precipice parking area is at the base of the Precipice cliff on the east side of Mount Desert Island about 1 mile north of the Schooner Head entrance fee station on the Park Loop Road (before arriving at the entrance station). We suggest that you do not hike this trail alone and that you verify weather conditions before the climb. The Precipice hiking trail has many rungs and ladders along the trail's length and is approximately 1.6 miles/2.6 km round trip. It can be closed late spring through mid-August due to the returning and endangered peregrine falcons that nest here so check with the National Park Service on this. Often, during this time (Monday through Friday,) there will be a Park naturalist at the Precipice parking area leading discussions and allowing people to view the falcons through a telescope. Watch for this on your right as you travel south on the Park Loop Road.

There are a lot of working farms in the Blue Hill area , open to the public, that are great fun to visit that sell everything from fresh organic chicken and meat to fresh raw milk, yoghurt and cream, to fresh fruits and vegetables.... There offer unmanned farm stands, where you help yourself to milk, for instance, out of the fridge and leave the money in the bucket. All are located really close to each other and are only 10 to 15 minutes from the Bungalow. Return the empty bottles.... Here is the list of farms, their addresses, and what they sell: The Homewood Farm located at 118 Ackley Farm Road in Penobscot (374 9903) is operated by Jeff and Trudy Beardsley and has vast strawberry fields, open to the public for self-picking starting in late June/early to mid July. It also sells fresh vegetables, jams, and raw and local honey. Purchase 50 lb bags of locally grown onions and potatoes in the fall. Quill’s End Farm, operated by Phil and Heather Retberg on 192 Front Ridge Road in Penobscot sells fresh raw milk, thick cream (ideal for making ice cream; there's an ice cream maker and rock salt at the Bungalow), delicious homemade "Orange Blossom" yoghurt, as well as thicker Greek yoghurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, hard cheese, eggs. Old Ackley Farm, operated by Bob Sullivan and Colleen Prentiss at 42 Ackley Farm Road, Blue Hill (near Homewood Farm) sells fresh organic chicken meat, raw milk and other items. Horsepower Farm, operated by Andrew and Donna Birdsall & Paul Birdsall at 90 Horsepower Farm Road, off Route 15, Penobscot (near Quills End farm) sells fresh, local Jacob's Beans, 10 lb bags of juice carrots, lettuce, and the like from their farm stand.... Ken-Rose Farm, located on 1381 Pleasant Street/Route 15, Blue Hill, I'm not sure is open... Ken and Flossy (Rose was his previous wife) both passed away recently, and I'm not sure whether Ken's grandson Nathaniel has reopened yet (they've been restoring the barn). But you used to be able to go to this farm and meet the cow "Brownie." You could visit Brownie in his barn and hear the radio that he liked to listen to. Octagenarian Ken would rise early each morning (3 am) and milk the cow and bring the milk and cream to harvest. King Hill Farm, operated by Amanda Provencher and Paul Shultz, 29 Faerie Kingdom Road, off Route 199, in Penobscot is a huge successful farm that, I think, sells boxes of fruit and vegetables to paying members on a weekly basis.... So they're highly successful growers with a large quota to fill. Blue-Zee Farm, operated by Mark and Renata Scarano 652 Front Ridge Road, Penobscot - sells fresh lettuce, farm produce, and local vegetables.

All are located really close to each other and are only 10 to 15 minutes from the Bungalow. Return the empty bottles.... Here is the list of farms, their addresses, and what they sell: The Homewood Farm located at 118 Ackley Farm Road in Penobscot (374 9903) is operated by Jeff and Trudy Beardsley and has vast strawberry fields, open to the public for self-picking starting in late June/early to mid July. It also sells fresh vegetables, jams, and raw and local honey. Purchase 50 lb bags of locally grown onions and potatoes in the fall. Quill’s End Farm, operated by Phil and Heather Retberg on 192 Front Ridge Road in Penobscot sells fresh raw milk, thick cream (ideal for making ice cream; there's an ice cream maker and rock salt at the Bungalow), delicious homemade "Orange Blossom" yoghurt, as well as thicker Greek yoghurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, hard cheese, eggs. Old Ackley Farm, operated by Bob Sullivan and Colleen Prentiss at 42 Ackley Farm Road, Blue Hill (near Homewood Farm) sells fresh organic chicken meat, raw milk and other items. Horsepower Farm, operated by Andrew and Donna Birdsall & Paul Birdsall at 90 Horsepower Farm Road, off Route 15, Penobscot (near Quills End farm) sells fresh, local Jacob's Beans, 10 lb bags of juice carrots, lettuce, and the like from their farm stand.... Ken-Rose Farm, located on 1381 Pleasant Street/Route 15, Blue Hill, I'm not sure is open... Ken and Flossy (Rose was his previous wife) both passed away recently, and I'm not sure whether Ken's grandson Nathaniel has reopened yet (they've been restoring the barn). But you used to be able to go to this farm and meet the cow "Brownie." You could visit Brownie in his barn and hear the radio that he liked to listen to. Octagenarian Ken would rise early each morning (3 am) and milk the cow and bring the milk and cream to harvest. King Hill Farm, operated by Amanda Provencher and Paul Shultz, 29 Faerie Kingdom Road, off Route 199, in Penobscot is a huge successful farm that, I think, sells boxes of fruit and vegetables to paying members on a weekly basis.... So they're highly successful growers with a large quota to fill. Blue-Zee Farm, operated by Mark and Renata Scarano 652 Front Ridge Road, Penobscot - sells fresh lettuce, farm produce, and local vegetables.
Sunset Acres Farm Located at 769 Bagaduce Road, Brooksville, ME, 04617 Sunset Acres Farm makes a large variety of different goat cheeses, but all of it is made using the old-fashioned European method of hand-ladling curd into cheesecloth bags or into individual forms. Located on the banks of a tidal saltwater river, they milk about 100 Saanen, Alpine and Nubian dairy goats, all selected for their excellent tasting milk.

Native Americans harvested oysters that flourished in the wake of the receding glaciers. As rising sea levels moved the coast inland, oysters multiplied in the warm, brackish water, and Native Americans feasted. But the great harvests did not last. Around 1,000 years ago, the oysters disappeared and the middens (the piles of shells) were abandoned. As the sea level continued to rise, the salt water brought with it predatory snails and other marine animals which, in addition to cooling temperatures in the Gulf of Maine, caused the oyster population to crash. At a point where the Great Salt Bay drains into the Damariscotta River, there are great heaps of ancient oyster shells. One pile—technically these piles are called middens—is 30 feet deep and contains shells as large as 12 inches long. While people have gathered shellfish from Maine waters for more than 5,000 years, there was a period when oysters were absent from the coast. Now a growing community of fisher-farmers is once again making a living pulling oysters from the sea. The Bagaduce Tidal River in nearby Brooksville, produces large amounts of nutrients and oxygen for the oysters to thrive. The shoreline is mostly unbroken spruce and granite. The tide drifts past uninhabited islands through lustrous beds of eelgrass before tumbling through the reversing falls that flow beneath Route 175/176. Leach’s oyster farm is located just upriver from the falls, which help to aerate the water and restrict the tidal range, preventing wide fluctuations in water level that would strand the oysters on exposed mud flats. To taste a Maine oyster is to taste the cold, clean, salty waters of the Maine coast. Jesse Leach, owner of Bagaduce Oyster Company, "filters" oysters in "grow-out cages" at his aquaculture lease site on the Bagaduce River. Since Maine waters don’t always get warm enough for oysters to spawn, most growers, including Leach, buy oyster “seed” from one of seven hatcheries in the state. Seed oysters are about the size of a grain of sand. Leach places the seed in plastic mesh trays that float on the water’s surface. He turns the trays daily to prevent fouling by sponges, sea squirts, and other organisms. Most growers place their shellfish on the river bottom to continue growing, but Leach keeps his on the surface until they reach market size, which for him is about two to three inches, when they are about three years old. Leach also raises hard-shell clams and tends a 19-head herd of cattle, but he makes most of his living from the oysters. Oysters feed by filtering algae and other particles from the water, and so they take on the characteristics of the place where they live. Maine oysters are the best-flavored in the world, he says...

Merrill & Hinckley has been the town’s general store since forever, but it is also a full-service supermarket. When Tradewinds burned down a few years ago, Merrill & Hinckley did yeoman's service! Great place to buy milk, meat, and vegetables when you're not in the mood to stand in a long line. Movie rentals. Liquor. Beer. Fishing rods. Guns. Dare I say, "Wedding dresses?"
