Welcome to Hope’s Edge Farm

We are a small farm located in Hope, Maine. Here’s a taste of what we have to offer.

Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables

We at Hope’s Edge Farm are committed to non-chemical farming methods. Tom has been using Biodynamic practices for over 20 years and builds his own compost on site, which means that we know exactly what we are feeding the soil and therefore the plants. No agricultural chemicals have been used on this land since 1997. You’ll taste the quality in the food we produce. We grow a wide variety of both familiar and less common vegetables as well as some melons and berries. For the full list, visit our CSA page.

Fresh Herbs

We grow a variety of annual and perennial herbs throughout the growing season. The list includes basil, chives, cilantro, marjoram, oregano, parsley, sage, and thyme. You’ll see a changing selection in the farm stand and CSA. Don’t be afraid to ask if you’re looking for something specific – we may be able to go out to the fields to pick what you need!

Pastured Eggs

You can visit our flock of free-range chickens, who roam the barn and barnyard. We currently have about 20 laying hens and a very polite rooster. These chickens are fed organic food and get to enjoy all the sunshine, plants and bugs they desire!

Pick Your Own Flowers 

Each year we plant a row or two of mixed annual and perennial flowers of all shapes, sizes, and colors. CSA members are invited to visit the field and pick their own bouquets. There is a special kind of joy that comes with picking and arranging flowers. Come and experience it for yourself!

Special Items

Each season we partner with other local farms and small producers to offer additional items at our farm store or as CSA add-ons. Past offerings have included tofu, cheese, mushrooms, bread, and vinegar. For the 2022 season we will proudly offer locally produced Heiwa Tofu at our farm stand.
