Sunday July 23, 2023: Maple Crest Farm Animal Rescue will host a free and open farm day in conjunction with a Statewide open farm day sponsored by “Real Maine” from 10 AM to 2 PM. Darlings Ice Cream Truck will be on site from 12-2 to support the animal rescue, a 501(c)(3) non profit.
We do farm tours by appointment and we have a few open farm days, mostly during the summer, but some spring and fall. We do not charge for the tours but accept donations to help cover the costs for feed and veterinary care as many of our animals are “rescued.” Please do not show up unannounced.
We also do photo ops for senior pictures, engagements and business retreats, such as picnics. Trish is a talented photographer if you need one!
