We operate a diversified salt water organic farm on the shores of Cobscook Bay close to beautiful hiking trails, kayaking, seafood. Enjoy Downeast scenic beauty and historic architecture. Our charming camping platforms are located on the blueberry lands. Enjoy the small farm life, without the work!

The space
Smithereen Farm is perched at the end of Leighton Point peninsula overlooking Cobscook bay. We are 5 years into building our vision of beauty, diversity and abundance, with an emphasis on agro-forestry, algae and a love of berries. We manage about 30 acres of seaside meadows, orchards and gardens. The back end of the land is a mostly spruce forest extending all the way to Long Cove, accessible only by foot, and fully protected by an easement from Maine Coast Heritage Trust.

Smithereen Farm is a MOFGA certified, highly diverse, organic farm. In the fall, we harvest apples from up and down the peninsula and press them for apple cider vinegar. In summer, we fish for mackerel and make fish sauce and harvest veggies from our greenhouses and extensive gardens. It goes in this order: Strawberries, honey berries, gooseberries and currants, service berries, raspberries, chokecherries, blueberries, cranberries. In spring we dip and smoke alewives. We harvest wild herbs from the meadows and forest edges, wild algae during low tides, and log-grown mushrooms for our signature ’mermaid broth’ which you can buy from the Smithereen Farm store 12 Little Falls Road, or online. The store is open 9-3 every day except Wed and Sat -- on Saturdays we are at the Lubec Farmer's Market from 10-12.

There is a lot going on around here, and if you ‘re happy to be around busy farmers, this is a good place for you. If you prefer solitude in the forest, we recommend the blueberry land site or the lower meadow spots.

The HIPCAMP tent platforms are located along the western forest edge looking out over the farm, they are removed from the action of the farm and are marked with round numbered signs.

Stroll down 5 minutes to the foreshore to see the ledges at low tide, walk the 15 minute trail to Long Cove and enjoy the tranquility. Walk 10 minutes out to Leighton Point to swim from the beach. Drive 10 minutes down to Reversing Falls to see the rushing water and its vortex, or drive out to the many trails of Cobscook Trails network nearby. The opportunities for exploration are endless; if you ever run out of things to do, don't hesitate to ask for more inspiration!

We encourage camper self sufficiency, and will reward you with our fresh grown veggies!

Most people cook over their small campfire or the larger shared campfire and have a camping food/ picnic type/ BYOB experience. Pack it in, pack it out!.

You are most welcome to sit and eat on the long tables by the summer kitchen and to meander around the farm looking at all the beauty— just don’t expect us to chat for an hour!

Restaurant dining is pretty limited in our area and mostly available in Eastport and Lubec— Lubec Brewing Company is a must, Bettys Crab meat offers in Pembroke, our own Smithereen Farmstore on 12 Little Falls Road, fried clams at the New Friendly Diner in Perry,
Dennysville/Machias/Eastport/Lubec farmers markets, fresh Juji’s bread on Wednesdays or by preorder, Long Lost farm-store in Edmunds for amazing creamery products, Tide Mill Farm on Saturdays, and of course the gas station has hot coffee in the morning if you need it. Prepare yourself for hyper-rurality, bring what you need with you, pack out your own trash.

To locate us, search Smithereen Farm at 767 Leighton Point Road, Pembroke, ME 04666. Please note that this is a residential area and our neighbors appreciate your speed-keeping consideration.

This year there will be NO DOGS ALLOWED AT SMITHEREEN FARM SITES : Last year a visiting dog taught our dogs to eat the ducklings they had previously treated as baby sisters causing carnage and heartbreak. The tall white dogs are very shy, and the little black dog tends to nip ankles, sorry about that. IF YOU HAVE DOGS, YOU ARE STILL WELCOME, we will make arrangements for you at Blueberry Land Sites located at 306 Youngs Cove Road. Although it does not offer oceanside views, it is just 2 miles down the road, and has very beautiful sunsets and a more private atmosphere.
