Bittersweet Heritage Farm is located on the picturesque St. George peninsula in the Mid-Coast area of Maine just beyond Tenants Harbor and  1 mile from the village of Port Clyde. Boats to Monhegan Island leave Port Clyde daily and the village teems with activity as the lobstermen and fishermen deliver their catches. Port Clyde is home to the Midcoast Fishermen’s Cooperative and the Port Clyde fleet, the last remaining small fishing fleet on the Maine coast north of Portland, Maine to Canada.
Bittersweet is a working dairy farm. Fresh and aged cheeses, raw goat’s milk, pasture raised eggs are stocked daily on the farm. Also offered are soaps made with creamy goats milk, lavender, wool from the farm’s Romney-cross flock and hand knitted woolens. Visitors are invited to visit the farm stand in season and the Virtual Farm Stand year round.

Bittersweet is a small sustainable farmstead and working Maine State Certified Dairy. Bittersweet supports efforts to protect rare and heritage breeds of farm animals. The registered herd of purebred Saanen goats and sheep come from long lines of Maine grown healthy stock. Saanen’s are the largest of the dairy goat breed, typically weighing 150 pounds and and give the most milk, averaging 8-12 lbs a day. Bittersweet’s sheep descend from island grown and other local Maine flocks, well known for their sturdy production of lustrous fleeces and year round hardiness. Continuing to carry on these lines is an important part of preserving our local historical heritage both here on the peninsula and in Maine.
Bittersweet supports all efforts to keep Maine farms alive and growing. In addition, the farm works to develop partnerships and encourages teaching best farming practices and the humane treatment of animals, while working to develop more ways to connect people to local foods. 
I describe myself as an accidental farmer with a purpose. My farm, located on the St. George peninsula of Maine is a certified Maine State Dairy. I offer cheeses made with milk from my registered Saanen goat herd, a seasonal farm stand full of wool from my Romney cross flock, goats milk soaps, lavender, woolens and whatever else strikes my fancy. Bittersweet Heritage Farm is an extension of my belief that we should all gain a better understanding of our food source, our connection to where we live and to the animals with whom we share the earth.
