Who we are and what the heck is a farmette?
The inspiration for Birchwood came from our stay at a simple Italian agritoursimo. We rented a guest room from a local family that raised animals, vegetables, and, of course, grapes and olives, all on under an acre plot. The place was clean and simple. The family innkeepers provided us with unparalleled local knowledge that truly made it a trip of a lifetime.
Farmette is our translation of agritoursimo. Our aim is to grow as much as we can in the healthiest most natural way possible for us and for the land.
Our memberships and sponsorships include: Maine certified Environmental Leader in lodging; MOFGA; Citizens for a Green Camden; Maine Birding Trail.
We recycle, repurpose, compost and operate a solar thermal hot water system. Our place is purposefully simply-appointed to echo our sustainability efforts.
Discounts may apply for workshop attendees, biodynamic or organic small farmers and students.
*WiFi is FREE but 24/7 connectivity is not guaranteed nor do we provide IT support.
