Meet Your Farmer - Tide Mill Farm

One in a series of 8 short films about Maine farmers, created by Maine Farmland Trust and Pull-Start Pictures. The films offer a glimpse at the many different types of farms in the state: from the potato harvest in Aroostook County, to the innovations of a seventh-generation farmer Downeast, to the struggles of a dairy farmer in Western Maine, the short films remind viewers that farming is more than just a historical feature of Maine; farming in Maine is alive and well.

Now into their ninth generation on a beautiful swath of the coast in Edmunds, Maine, the Bell family has an unbelievably diverse operation, from chicken and beef to vegetables and dairy at Tide Mill Farm. “Even in this county, being the most economically depressed county in the entire northeast, we’re carving out a living selling local stuff to local people.”
