Shilo Community Barn
where we cultivate community
About shilo farm
OUR MISSION: Shilo Farm is an earth, animal and community centric eco lodge and gathering place intended to inspire and nourish all who visit.
OUR VISION: Our vision began in 2012 with an impulse to listen with all of our senses, to what this private, wooded 6 acre parcel 4 miles from historic Portsmouth, NH desired to become.
We started with monthly community fires, potlucks and seasonal celebrations and are now offering daily health centric community classes, unique workshops & retreats, as well as lodging for travelers. We are most inspired when we connections being made, visions being birthed and opportunities being created. And thus, a community center was born that would be the fertile ground for gathering community and sharing in all our amazing gifts.
Like your traditional CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture), Shilo Farm recognizes itself as a CSC (Community Supported Community ) ripe with opportunity for all who want to be involved.
CHOP WOOD CARRY WATER PHILOSOPHY: We are also a micro farm/homestead that cultivates medicinal plants, herbs and food following permaculture principles of land management. Elderberries are our specialty. We have a small, but growing herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats; with the goal of making goat cheese, offering raw goat milk and soap. We raise organic and free range heritage breed chickens for their eggs and have three rescue cats and a 125 pound Livestock Guardian dog called Shasta. Our property consists of 6 acres of woodland and edible gardens landscapes. We are located in Eliot Maine and are a mere four miles from Historic Portsmouth, NH. Come and pay us a visit!
FOR YOU: The opportunities might vary from personal to professional but it’s here, available and we want to share the richness.
