Spa Day

From March to October, Smithereen Farm hosts SPA DAYS, where each person gets a nice bathtub and all the fixins to take in the good energy of the farm and release anything else down the drain.

Luxuriate in a cast iron tub set amongst the apple trees. Sweat in a Copperthwaite-style wooden sauna. Scrub down with Maine sea salt and infused calendula. Absorb the energy of the sea with freshly harvested ascophyllum nodosum seaweed floating all around you as you gaze out at Cobscook Bay.


April 13, 2pm (Seaweed special)

May 18, 1pm (Apple blossom special)

June 15+16, 3pm (Peak meadow experience)

June 21, 5pm (Midsommar night, full moon!)

We provide:

  • Herbal tea

  • Personal seaweed bath

  • Shared hot sauna

  • Scrub, salt, mud, Bixa Fixa cream

You bring:

  • Change of clothes

  • Bathing suit if desired

  • Your own drinking water vessel

  • Your own towels, farm-appropriate footwear

  • A sense of adventure! 

You may wish to book a massage (paid separately) with Mandy Newell of Mountain Air Therapeutics. To schedule, please text: (207) 214-1068

The tubs are set up on platforms and we have a lovely outdoor kitchen, hot shower, composting toilet and place to change—but it is a working farm with dogs, cat, toddler and organic vegetables in every direction. We recommend our visitors take the time to walk down through the lower meadow to the beach, or through the forest to the cove while they are here. Or camp for the weekend at Blueberry Land!

Certainly don’t forget to visit the Smithereen Farmstore on your way out and stock up on wonderful fresh, frozen, local and organic meat, fish, dairy, veggies of Washington County, and of course the famous Organic Wild Blueberry Topping (not too sweet!), Flower Power Tea and much more.

“A day of self care with new friends on a lovely farm? Yes, please! Spa Day at Smithereen Farm was absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend!”
