About Us

Mitchell Ledge Farm

Mitchell Ledge Farm is located on Flying Point Road, two miles east of the coastal village of Freeport, Maine (home of L.L.Bean) and back-grounded by the view of "Mitchell Ledge" (200 feet in elevation). Mitchell Ledge Farm's 185 acres of pastures and hay fields, woodlands and stream wetlands is the setting where we have raised our family and our herd of award-winning purebred registered Belted Galloway beef cattle since 1976.

Visitors are always welcome, from those simply curious about the "Oreo Cookie" cows to the serious cattle breeder interested in purchasing breeding stock. We love to show off our Belties and share our forage and woodlot operations with guests.

Our cattle operation uses practical facilities and relies primarily on grass-based feeding programs in which our Belties thrive. By taking advantage of the Beltie's aggressive foraging traits, Maine’s excellent growing season, intensive rotational grazing practices and high quality production of both ensiled and dry hay, we are able to provide an abundance of high quality feed for our Beltie herd.

Farm operations also include extensive timber management. Each year sustainable tree harvesting projects are undertaken resulting in the production and sale of logs, pulpwood and firewood. Our own farmhouse is a great customer, using 8-10 cords per year to fire the wood boiler.
