Mainers Feeding Mainers

Since 2014 Beech Hill Farm has worked with the Good Shepard Food Bank, producing retail quality vegetables for local food pantries. The program’s goal is to provide fresh, nutritious, locally grown food for needy Maine families and individuals at fair prices to supplement their food donation and salvage programs. Over the last two years Beech Hill Farm has provided over 1,000 lbs of food to Bar Harbor Food Pantry through this program.
