Begin the day with a quintessential farm breakfast at The White Barn Inn before starting your whole-grain experience at Frinklepod Farm. You will be greeted by farm owner, Flora Brown, who is passionate about renewing the farming culture of Southern Maine. After a detailed tour of the four-acre property and three greenhouses, your day of playing in the soil begins. You will be paired with a talented Frinklepod team member who will show you the incredible care that goes into organic farming, from how to build healthy soil to how to attract beneficial insects. Depending on the season, you will be planting, weeding, or harvesting everything from plump cherry tomatoes to mini-forests of kale, using hand tools to work as intimately as possible with each plant. After a few hours in the fields, you will join Flora in the farm kitchen for a delicious vegetarian lunch prepared with vegetables harvested from the farm earlier in the day.
- For your journey to the farm, choose between a 15-minute car ride or a 30-minute cycle with complimentary bikes outfitted with baskets to transport the fruits of your labor back to the hotel. Bicycles are subject to availability.
