Two Farmers Farm is located at US-1 in Scarborough. This is Abenaki land that has been farmed by European settlers for around 200 years; we began leasing this land in 2012. We manage about 15 acres of total cropland, on which we rotate about 5 acres of mixed vegetables and 10 acres of soil-building cover crops every year.
The soils we farm are a combination of sandy loam and loamy sand – beautiful, light soils that grow excellent root crops and salad greens. These soils are low in organic matter and highly erodible; we take seriously our responsibility to care for and replenish this delicate but fertile land for future generations.
We are just a few miles from the ocean, and the sea breeze helps keep our crops healthy and disease-free. The woods, brooks and marsh that surround our farm provide natural habitat for beneficial insects and critters that support our cropland and share this space with us.
