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.
