WILLOW LANE FARM
Willow Lane Farm is a 6th and 7th generation family farm in Harmony operated by the Magoon Family. We raise Registered Highland Cattle and sell breeding stock and grass fed and grass finished Highland Beef. The Highland animal is a slower growing animal than other breeds and produces beef that while well marbled is naturally lean, with approximately one third of the fat, two thirds of the cholesterol and 10% more protein than commercial beef. Try our beef, and you will join us in saying, “Move over Angus, there is a new cow in town.”

CROOKED FACE CREAMERY
552 River Road
Norridgewock, ME 04957
Eight years ago, some may say it started out with a Crooked Face cow. Though truly, the devotion to cheese craftsmanship, to local dairy farms, and to giving back to the community began shortly after Amy Rowbottom was born to a milk making family in Norridgewock, ME. Raised with the steadfast work ethic and deep gratitude that comes from dairy farming, Amy might have spent some time away but her family heritage was quick to call her back up North. That’s where the herd with the funny-faced Jersey cow came in, and the thoughtful (though wholly unexpected) process of perfecting a line of whole milk cheeses took hold.
Amy is now hard at work creating a unique mix of award winning cheeses and sells them at farmers’ markets, specialty shops, bakeries and farm to table restaurants across the state. All cheeses are handcrafted with high quality local whole Jersey milk, no preservatives, and limited ingredients, and often specially cold-smoked, for the creamiest, richest flavor and texture. It’s Amy’s way of giving back—to her local farmer friends and her hometown community—in the very best way she knows: really, really good cheese.
Crooked Face Creamery also offers Grass Fed Angus Beef, including burger, stew meat, hearty soup bones, roasts, short ribs, steak tips, Ribeye, T-Bone, Porterhouse, Filet Mignon, NY Sirloin, and other specialty cuts upon request.

Thuringer lakenfelder bauernhof
237 James Rd.
Cornville, ME 04976
We are a small family farm located in Cornville. We will be selling fresh eggs and meat birds at the Skowhegan Farmers' Market. We opened the farm up in November 2017. I have been working with chickens since I was a young child. I had all types of breeds but as I gained wisdom I narrowed it down to two breeds. Lakenvelder and Saxon. They are are both German heritage breeds that would much rather forage for their food then eat grain. I was stationed in Germany where I found two awesome mentors who taught me everything about Lakenvelders. Both farmers and breeders of heritage Lakenvelder. I purchase my grain fresh from Feed Commodities out of Detroit Maine. They have 19 acres of grass, bugs and nutrient filled soil to range on. In addition to Lakenvelders and Saxons I have ducks and geese. We will be selling pastured duck and goose meat this year also. My Saxon are dual purpose chicken and we will be selling meat from them as well. The birds are the black birds in the picture. I used crosses to build this breed and replicate the old hardy breed from Germany. I am a firm believer in making sure all my animals are afforded the best life even if they will be food. Correct space and freedom are very important.
