Nature's Circle Farm, centered in Aroostook County, Maine, was founded in 1996 by owner and grower, Dick York. Dick grew up working on a family farm and knew instinctively that agriculture was something he always wanted to do. Dick started out growing a variety of mixed organic vegetables on just two acres of land. He and his son, Jamie, did all the work. He was aware of the importance of growing organic, and knew that this movement would soon take hold in northern Maine. Dick had a vision of increasing his product line and markets, as well as getting his own family more involved.
Dick's daughter, Meg, started doing some bookkeeping and marketing for the farm in 2004, and now co-owns the farm with her father. As business picked up, it appeared there was a growing demand for the organic vegetables, particularly potatoes which grow very well in Aroostook County soil. Nature's Circle Farm now grows potatoes, turnip, rutabaga, carrots, beets, cabbage, parsnips, squash and grain, all USDA certified organic.
We also grow double-certified organic seed potato (12 varieties). We are proud to have a wonderful crew of employees who work very hard to maintain operations and keep us functioning well. We are very pleased to be able to provide part of the nation with our organic products, and continue to hope that more and more people will begin to buy and eat organic! We welcome visitors to the farm at anytime and are located on US#2, six miles west of US#1 in Houlton at Station Road intersection. Come on out during harvest, and you can pick your own potatoes (just bring a basket!).
