Timberwoods Farm was founded by a group of individuals with extensive backgrounds in farming and business.
Together they are committed to a vision of cultivating the highest quality produce while continuing the tradition to protect the earth.
This led to the purchase of the 118-acre historical farm where Timberwoods Farm produce is grown and nurtured alongside organic indoor produce and a densely wooded forest.
The three of us, the founders of Timberwoods Farm, are continually impressed with the beauty and peacefulness of our new home. Each of us has embraced the unspoken covenant to protect, to enhance, to share the preciousness embodied in this land.
We are, of course, a business, and our goal is to be a long-lived business, but we will do so in as gentle a way as possible. We envision the cultivation of our organic, natural produce as a vehicle to preserve the integrity of this land. Old Land, Storied History – New Future to Preserve the Old.
Timberwoods Farm itself is a long-established name, dating all the way back to 1826, when the farm was settled in S. Paris, Maine. We have successfully retrofitted the now 200-year-old barn to be our state-of-the-art indoor grow facility. Currently our grow rooms use radiant heat supplied by our outdoor furnace using timber from trees that have reached the end of their lives. By 2023, we expect to have a solar solution allowing us to net 95% of our electrical power requirement, and we will be using the Androscoggin Aquifer for our water needs and recycling our greywater to grow vegetables and fruits in our acre+ garden.
The original farmhouse dates from 1826, approximately 30 years after the incorporation of S. Paris, ME, the small town in which it is located. The barn and other additions were completed no later than 1832, so our facility is housed in almost two-hundred-year-old digs. We are currently retrofitting the barn to house our indoor grow rooms, and the amount of work we have undertaken is extensive. New insulation, new wiring, irrigation, state-of-the-art lighting, and tables. Very little expense has been spared, as our goal is to produce the highest quality, organic and holistic produce available in the State of Maine.
We are also trying to minimize our environmental impact and we are heating our facility with an outdoor furnace powered by end-of-life trees, installing solar panels to supply electricity, and using the Androscoggin aquifer for our water needs, while recycling our grey water into our organic gardens.
