The Shire Homestead is a small diverse family farm located in coastal Freeport, Maine. We are a non GMO, organic practice, permaculture focused and intensively grown working farm.
Our chickens, turkeys and geese are pastured and free range. We have a small herd of dairy goats, from which we get our milk, yogurt, and cheese. We have heritage pigs and rabbits. Many of our vegetables, herbs and mushrooms are wild harvested. We make tinctures, soaps, lotions, and teas from what we grow and gather. Next year we will add a market garden!

As Christians, we believe we are to be good stewards to the land and animals in our care. We believe God has given us creation as food, as medicine and to stand in awe and wonder at. We are to care for and protect the earth and it's inhabitants. It is our desire to honor God with our homestead and all that it produces.
