Nezinscot Farm began 30 years ago the first Organic Dairy in the state of Maine. The Farm is located in the picturesque town of Turner, Maine surrounded by 250 acres of Organic Farmland.

Over the years, with a passion for good food and a deep sense of love for sustaining and enhancing the beautiful land surrounding them, Nezinscot Farm has expanded to include a Gourmet Food Shop, Cafe & Bakery, Fromagerie, Charcuterie, and… yes, a Fiber Studio!

The grounds contain acres of veggie gardens, rolling fields, the Nezinscot river and farm animals.

The Nezinscot Farm yarn & roving comes from their own flock of Cormo and Shetland sheep, llama, alpaca, and goats. The wool is blended and spun at New England spinneries into 2 and 4 ounce skeins.

Look at those little sheep faces!

In addition to their own yarn and roving, the shop stocks a full range of yarn & roving from top brands across the U.S. (including Louet NA’s lovely yarns!), knitting, spinning and weaving accessories as well as hand crafted items from local artists.
