Our Campus

We partner with our sister business, Smithereen Farm, which runs the farm business and agricultural operations — feeding our residents and visitors from a growing local, regional, and international community.

New in 2022 is the Farm Shop at Grey Lodge, located in the former miners lodge and Crossroads Motel at Little Falls Road on Route 1.

Our commercial cooking facility, Minke Kitchen, is across the street and the former site of the Pembroke Ironworks. This facility is also run by Smithereen Farm, where they process MOFGA certified, value-added products, made from seaweed, herbs, mushrooms, blueberries, cranberries, apple cider vinegar, and more. You can also shop online.


We host summer workshops and family camping at the farm at Reversing Hall and in our surrounding landscape. We also offer an Artist in Residency program and house an extensive Agrarian Library at the Hall.

Our Campus Includes:

  • The Smithereen "home farm", 160 acres of diverse organic agriculture and forest overlooking Cobscook Bay. Here we host most of our workshops in the gentle shade of the summer kitchen.
  • Blueberry Land, just down the road from the home farm, which hosts four campsites (newly outfitted in 2023 with custom canvas-covered A-frames built by Haystack Joinery) and six acres of organic lowbush blueberry production.
  • Reversing Hall, our 1896 Odd Fellows Hall which hosts Greenhorns' 8,000+ volume collection of books on a wide array of topics relevant to agriculture, land use, policy, history, and more!
  • Grey Lodge, a former mining office which now hosts our main office, the Smithereen Farm store, thrifty shopee (new in 2023!), conference room, sunny parlor, and a place for our artists in residence to sleep.
  • Minke Kitchen, a fully equipped commercial kitchen that serves as the central hub Smithereen Farm's USDA Local Food Promotion Program grant initiative to support and promote local producers in Washington County.
  • Soon-to-be seven greenhouses for kelp drying, blueberry drying, tomatoes & tomatillos, and seedlings.
  • Six single family houses along the Pennamaquan River, three of which will be renovated by Summer 2023 -- all historic, derelict, and in much need of love and care.
  • A small limited-purpose aquaculture lease in Schooner Cove for Smithereen Farm's kelp and oyster production.
  • The largest organically managed cranberry bog in the state of Maine! Only 6 acres, located in Dennysville about 10 minutes from the rest of campus.
Come visit us this season and explore all that this world has to offer!
