Nezinscot Farm

Hey all. March is a pretty crazy month at Bates. Papers, tests, readings and other assignments tend to pile up this time of year as professors try to fit in extra material and make sure we cover everything on the syllabi before reaching finals week. On top of all the work, there are no school breaks or vacations during the month, so things can get pretty stressful. That’s why it’s so nice to have a place like Nezinscot so close by.

Nezinscot is a farm located in nearby Turner, ME. Like most traditional farms, Nezinscot has plenty of barnyard animals, but what it is most well-known for is its amazing food. Nezinscot is open six days a week all year for breakfast and lunch, and the friendly staff (some of whom are Batesies) serve up delicious organic dishes. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable and its great to eat some home-style cuisine in a rustic and cozy farm setting. A cat and two dogs are always there to greet you, giving Nezinscot even more of a homey feel.

There is so much more to learn about Nezinscot, which also sells baked and canned goods, offers educational workshops and has its own teahouse. Check out the Nezinscot website here. You can also learn more by going to the Nezinscot blog or checking the farm out on its own facebook page.

For now, I’ll just leave you with some pictures from my last trip to Nezinscot. Until next time…

Finals Time…

Hey all. It is officially finals week here at Bates and, like everyone else on campus, I’m swamped with work. It’s actually not as bad as it has been in prior years. I have a 20 page research paper about slave conspiracy, a 7-10 page research paper about the borderlands between Mexico and the U.S. (to be written in Spanish), as well as final exams in my biology and British history courses.

I find it’s no use to complain about the workload. Primarily because everyone is in the same boat, but also it’s hard to bellyache and moan about going to a great school, getting an excellent education, and learning and studying in a welcoming and challenging academic environment. Besides, I’ve got less than a week left to enjoy everything that Bates has to offer before I’m off to Spain for a semester.

Much more to come about study abroad in the coming weeks as I prepare to leave in mid-January. I will continue to blog while abroad as to continue to provide you readers with the college experience of one Batesie.

Anyway, time to get back to work. Hope winter is treating you all well. Mother nature continues to pile on the snow here at Bates… Until next time…
