Welcome to Nezinscot Farm
“Creating a memory and experience that only farms can”
Store & Cafe
A little about us
Nezinscot Farm began as the first Organic Dairy in the state of Maine. Through the desire to diversify and the passion for good food, Nezinscot’s owners, Gregg & Gloria Varney expanded Nezinscot Farm to encompass a Gourmet Food Shop, a Cafe and Coffee Shop, a Bakery, a Fromagerie, a Charcuterie, and a Yarn & Fiber Studio.
Nezinscot Farm is located in the picturesque town of Turner, Maine surrounded by 250 acres of Organic Farmland. On the grounds, you can find acres of veggie gardens, rolling fields, farm animals, and the Nezinscot River.

Maine Yarn Cruise 2023
We are participating in the 2023 Main Yarn Cruise.
For those who haven’t participated before, the Maine Yarn Cruise is not an actual boat cruise, rather it’s a summer and early fall yarn crawl. As a “Cruiser”, you can visit any participating shop to purchase a Passport with a custom MYC bag, complete with goodies from our wonderful sponsors and shops. Then start your cruise and visit as many shops as you can before October 9th (Indigenous Peoples' Day). This year, we have a total of 24 shops participating.
Each shop offers monthly prizes and a grand prize drawing. That’s over 75 prize-winning opportunities! If you visit all 24 shops, you can enter the drawing to win our End-of-the-Road Grand Prize—a $300 or $100 gift card to the MYC shop of your choice.
