Who We Are

Beech Hill Farm is a family operated farm where we put our heart and souls into producing the best quality organic vegetables, grass-fed bison meat, and fresh baked goods.  We are committed to sustainability and to providing the public with healthy, local food.

Doretta

Baker extraordinaire. When she isn’t covered in flour, she’s covered in dirt. This lady has a wicked green thumb too!

Ted

Master tractor driver, fence post digger and hoop house builder. He is responsible for keeping the farm operating. He can fix and building anything. His skills are magical!

Ed

Ed co-manages the organic produce with his wife Erin. Ed keeps the gardens and farm property looking tidy and running smoothly. He also helps staff the produce table at the farmers’ markets Beech Hill Farm attends in additions to managing the on-site farm store.

Erin

Erin co-manages the organic produce with her husband Ed. She typically staffs the produce table at the local farmers’ markets that Beech Hill Farm attends as well as manages the new website and the farm’s Facebook page. She runs her own fitness and nutrition business, Good Health is a Habit LLC, through which she offers nutrition and wellness consulting, yoga class, and fitness training.

Eddie

Eddie is Erin and Ed’s son, and you can often hear Eddie yelling “I love chickens!” as he chases them around the property. One of his favorite tasks is to check the laying boxes for eggs. Upon finding any eggs Eddie is sure to express his gratitude, “Thank you Ladies!”

Sharon

Tomato trellis expert. If she isn’t working in the garden you can find a paintbrush in her hand. She is an artist by trade and responsible for the awesome, life-size painting of a bison on our barn door.

Preston

This man belongs in the kitchen. His cooking keeps our bellies full and fuels our farm labor. He’s also a fantastic musician, whose strumming on the guitar gives our daily lives a peaceful sound track. His talents don’t stop there though. Like Sharon, Preston is an artist as well. You can check out their artwork here.

About Us

Our Farming Practices

In all aspects of our farm business, we strive for sustainability and operate with a deep commitment to Mother Nature. Because we believe that it is in the best interest of ourselves, our community and our land to use organic farming practices, our produce is MOFGA organic certified. Not only will our produce taste better, but it will provide you with better quality nutrients too.

There is no doubt that we are what we eat and our quality of life is fiercely dependent on our health. If you want to eat well, be healthy and support a local business, come visit our farm or find us at a variety of local farmers’ markets.

Our History

Beech Hill Farm is a 4th generation family farm located in the Oxford Hills region of Maine. In the early 1900’s, Ted’s great grandfather Ezra Hersey and grandfather Charles purchased the land in order to establish a diary farm specializing in butter. Ted grew up visiting the farm and helping his grandparents during the summer. When he purchased the farm from his cousin in 2007, Ted fulfilled a dream of keeping the farm in operation and in the family.

When Ted and Doretta purchased the farm, bison had replaced the cows, providing grass-fed meat to the surrounding community. In more recent years, they took advantage of the fertile soil and established thriving organic vegetable gardens as well. But their passion didn’t stop there! They also took on baking and selling fresh, baked goods to balance out what their farm offers.

Currently, Doretta and Ted are being joined by family who are also in love with the farm. Doretta’s daughter Erin, husband Ed and son Eddie have moved up from New Hampshire to help manage the organic produce. After getting married on the farm in 2011 and coming up regularly to visit and help, Erin and Ed decided the farm is where they are meant to be.

Excitingly, Doretta’s sister Sharon and husband Preston have also decided to move up from Pennsylvania. They started visiting one week a year, which turned into 3 weeks a year.

Beech Hill Farm will now truly be a family-run operation again. There is good energy in the air here for sure!
