Alder Brook Pig Farm is tucked in the woods in the small town of Athens, Maine.

We specialize in raising Heritage Breed pork. All our pigs are registered pure bred Large Blacks. This breed is best known for its marbled meat which makes it tender, fine-textured and succulent. It is unlike any pork you ever tasted. By raising the pigs on pasture they don't need medication or antibiotics they receive all the vitamins and nutrients they need from mother nature. We are bringing back the old style pork raised on pasture—happy and never confined.

We sell half a pig or whole. If you don't have a freezer big enough or just a small household we do sell from the freezer. Our smoked goods can be smoked with or without nitrates. All our pork is frozen and packaged at a USDA certified facility. We also sell weaned piglets for 4H projects or to raise your own pork. Farm tours are available

Call or email for more information.

Icelandic lamb meat is fine-grained, very mild and delectable.

Pondview Farm sells all natural, grass fed Highland Beef and Icelandic Lamb.

Our animals do not receive antibiotics or hormones. They are rotationally grazed on pastures in summer, and eat local hay in winter.

Delicious Highland beef is significantly lower in fat and cholesterol, and higher in protein and iron than other breeds.

Mild flavored and naturally lean, Icelandic lamb is a much different experience than your typical grocery store lamb. Its milder flavor appeals to many consumers who say they "just don't like lamb."

Our meats are processed by a local USDA butcher and are available in sides, quarters and retail packages.

Check out our farm website for more information and please call or email for purchasing details.

Pondview Farm, Sue and Mark Faunce, 691 Ossipee Trail, Limington ME 04049. (207) 625-3075.

Sebago Lake Ranch is located 1 mile from the South shore of Sebago Lake on the Gorham/Standish line. We also farm in other parts of Gorham and Standish. We have been raising beef under a Natural label since the 90s and switched to a no grain, grass only diet in 2006.

We have practiced management intensive grazing since 1999 and worked with the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service for many years on projects to improve soil, water and air quality. As the manager of Sebago Lake Ranch I farm on a professional level. I have a BS from Cornell University in Animal Science and have attended various schools and seminars on Grass-Fed beef. I also have an extensive library on the subject, constantly staying up to date with the newest knowledge and technology.

Animals are humanely, safely and efficiently handled with a chute system purchased in 2006. We have been certified with the Maine Beef Quality Assurance program. We use a local abattoir that is federally USDA inspected and packages the meat in cryovac plastic. Right now we are limited to a seasonal production model because we want to achieve the maximum levels of Omega-3 and CLA that can be found in an animal finished on green grass. You may also find us at the Portland Farmers Market in Deering Oaks Park, May-November from 7-noon, and at the Sebago Brewing Company at their Portland, Scarborough, and Gorham locations.

We also produce/sell Maple Syrup.
