Singing Nettle Farm
Singing Nettle Farm is a certified organic, off-grid, horse-powered farm located in Brooks, Maine. At Singing Nettle Farm, we offer fresh vegetables, herbs, and flowers to local customers through a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and on Saturdays at the Brooks Park Boosters Farmers' Market. Waldo County residents can also enjoy our vegetables at Ralph's Cafe in Brooks, ME and in the schools of the RSU-3 district. We are dedicated to growing healthy, abundant, and nutrient-dense produce while regenerating our ecosystem. Our methods include permaculture, biodynamic, and organic growing practices. We do not use any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides, but instead grow resilient plants by developing soil fertility, biology, and structure. Our cut flowers come from beneficial insect habitat and nectary plants that are integrated with our food-producing plants. Because we believe in supporting the health of the people as well as the health of the land, we also offer herbal teas, salves, and honeys made from plants that contribute to our farm's biodiversity.
In addition to providing our community with local food directly from Singing Nettle Farm, we offer permaculture and edible landscape design and consultation services as Conscious Elements Permaculture, empowering people to transform their own homes, schools, and businesses into food-producing ecosystems. To complement the design process, we have a growing edible and medicinal plant nursery.
