Come camp with us! From May to October we offer ecological tourism at Blueberry Land, on Leighton Point Road. Learn more below!

2024 update: this season we are not hosting campers at the Home Farm site, only the beautiful, wild Blueberry Land site. 

Blueberry Land

  • Timber-framed canvas tent platforms with mosquito netting
  • Four sites in total
  • Individual fire pits
  • Set in the forest along the edges of our certified organic wild Maine blueberry barrens
  • Open for U-Pick blueberries in July and August
  • Basic facilities (compost toilet, very family-friendly and car accessible)
  • Well-behaved dogs are allowed at Blueberry Land
  • The road to Reversing Falls is very quiet, great for running and biking.
  • Just a short drive from the Smithereen Farm Store at 12 Little Falls Road, where you can stock up on local food and provisions, pick up visitor’s information, and fill your drinking water jug. Also available at the Farm Store: electric car charging station and WIFI!
  • There is no outdoor shower or water spigot at Blueberry Land, so please bring your drinking water from home, or fill up at the Smithereen Farm Store. Plan accordingly for your bathing needs. A dip in the beautiful, clean Pennamaquan can often feel just as good as a shower!

Hipcamper reviews

“Blueberry Land was a wonderful place to stay. Clean, quiet, peaceful, & private. We had the place to ourselves. How can you go wrong with a morning view like this!? We would absolutely come here again.

We loved the scene at Smithereen Farms, the community centered folks there are doing great work in this farflung locale!”

Gorgeous farm, welcoming hosts, delicious fresh produce and great products, what more could you ask for? Already can’t wait to return! Thanks for making our trip so special.”

“Well-maintained tent platforms on a lovely organic farm. We found Smithereen Farm to be an excellent home base for exploring Downeast Maine. We appreciated the outdoor shower, sink, and composting toilet. Don’t miss the Reversing Falls just down the road!”

Ecology and Recreation

Kayaking, hiking, biking, small boating adventures, clambakes, bird watching, foraging fruit and wild foods, swimming in lakes, endless beach walks with nary a traffic light are all activities you’ll enjoy during your stay here. More than a quarter of Washington County is under some kind of conservation protection, with the Cutler Coast, Moosehorn Wildlife Refuge, Downeast Salmon Federation, Downeast Coastal Conservancy, Maine Coast Heritage Trust, Grand Lakes Stream Trust, Nature Conservancy, Maine Islands Land Trust … plenty of room for and exploring, and plenty of terns, eagles, gannets, shearlings, plovers, puffins, petrals, eiders, shearwaters, loons, herons, and black ducks. You can watch them race up and down the surf, fluttering up in great clusters to feed, and out on the water amongst the whales, dolphins, and massive schools of herring and mackerel.


We believe in sharing this beautiful land with visitors. Come and learn with us about agroecology and participate in the enterprises we are engaged with. We also welcome those who come to teach us!

Engaging with visitors to the farm is part of our mission and our goal of recruiting more young farmers to this region. 

In the spring, we dip and smoke alewives, harvest wild and farmed algae, propagate seedlings, and get all our baby plants in the ground. 

As spring turns to summer, we harvest wild herbs from the meadows and forest edges, wild algae during low tides, and log-grown mushrooms for our signature Mermaiden Broth. 

In the summer, the farm is abuzz with activity – our pollinator habitat keeps the veggies and fruit trees happy, and we open up our U-Pick strawberries (June) and blueberries (mid-July). This is also the time of year when we host workshops with Greenhorns, our sister nonprofit. Join us to learn about algae, fungi, foraging, myco-buoys, local food cooking, and much more! Every week we sell at the Lubec Farmers’ Market with a growing diversity of vegetables and fruits. 

In the fall, U-Pick cranberries from the bog are available, as well as our scrumptious Cranberry Sauce—and you can join in the apple picking, pressing and harvest abundance.
