We are Polly Shyka and Prentice Grassi. We have been involved in agriculture for 17 years and have been farming this lovely land since 2001. We love to eat delicious food, to be outside, to grow things, to build things and we don't mind getting dirty. We are friendly and professional. We have three young sons. We also have a network of family support that makes the busy months possible. Growing food for ourselves, our family and our neighbors is what we love to do and aspire to do better each year.
Ultimately, we aspire to build a farm business that is a true asset to our community and local economy. We train 3-4 farm interns each growing season. We consider our mentorships to be an important way we contribute to the future of agriculture. We hope to not only serve the residents of Waldo County with a wide array of wholesome farm products, but also to create a place where neighbors can interact and people can connect with the source of their food. We imagine Village Farm as a community resource.
Village Farm is a diversified, family farm neighboring to the east the small town center of Freedom, Maine. Our farm is comprised of a contiguous 40-acre field of good farmland soils and an 80-acre woodlot.

Village Farm products are grown according to organic standards with an emphasis on organic sources of fertility and a grass-based livestock system. Our eggs, seedlings, and all vegetables, herbs and flowers are certified by MOFGA. Our pastured chickens are grown on MOFGA certified organic pasture and fed certified organic and Maine milled grains but due to our processor (Weston's Meats of Gardiner) not being certified organic, we cannot say that our chickens are certified organic.
