NEW BEAT FARM
New Beat Farm is a MOFGA Certified organic farm growing vegetables, and cut flowers in the heart of Waldo counties rich agricultural community. We farm because it is the best way for us to live by our ideals and give back. Our farming reflects our interest in building healthy self-sustaining communities. We sell our food at the Belfast Farmers Market, Daybreak Growers Alliance Farm Box Program and to local restaurants and wholesale accounts.
We strive to produce the most nutrient dense food possible for our customers while at the same time minimizing our reliance on farm inputs from outside our bioregion. We believe that sustainable farming practices require paying attention to the agro-ecosystem of our farm as a whole, from the microorganisms in our soil that protect and nurture our crops, to our horses that fertilize our fields, and the native pollinators that bring our fruits to bear. The past few seasons we have been transitioning the majority of our production ground to no-till permanent beds to help improve the health of the soil and to be more climate resilient as our weather patterns change in the face of climate change. Our larger field crops and hay are managed by our Belgian and Percheron draft horses.
