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…

Nezinscot Farm

(NOTE THE NEW BLOG LAYOUT UPDATED FOR SPRING)

Hey all. My friends have been trying to get me to go to Nezinscot Farm for an early morning breakfast since last year. Unfortunately for them, I enjoy my sleep. Unfortunately for me, I held out until last weekend to go to the Farm and I now regret not going sooner.

Nezinscot is a family-owned and operated organic farm just a short drive away from Bates in Turner, Maine. Nezinscot not only produces all natural meats, cheeses, baked goods, and preservatives, it also is dedicated to environmentally-friendly and sustainable farming practices and to promoting support for locally grown foods.

The farm’s cafe/bakery is Nezinscot’s best feature. You go inside the cafe, order anything on this menu (which is all organic), sit down anywhere, play with the cats and dogs that wander the farm, and then get delivered the delicious wholesome food. 

I now realize what I have been missing out on and have headed to the farm twice in the past two weeks. It’s nice to get off campus once and awhile and enjoy all that Maine has to offer. Check out the Nezinscot website here. Waking up early never tasted so good! Until next time…
