Host Gretchen Piper says:

Motherwort Farm is a homestead and herbal sanctuary located in Swanville, Maine. On 15 acres we grow vegetables, put up a large portion of our food through fermenting, canning, freezing, and storing. We keep egg layers, meat birds, guinea hens, have a small orchard, many types of berries, a solar hot water system, photovoltaic system and medicinal herb gardens for teaching and medicine making. Our property includes a pond, woodlands and abuts the Goose River. Camp sites are located at the back edge of the field and nestled into the woods with access to the outhouse and outdoor shower included in your stay.

The back 10 acres of our property are part of the Coastal Mountain Land Trust and trail provides access to pond, river and woods. Swanville, Maine is 2 minutes down the road and Swan Lake State Park is 10 minutes. Belfast, Maine is also 10 minutes away and has a vibrant arts community, food coop, summer music, free boating; it’s a hub for many cool happenings. Biking to town if you don’t have a car can be accomplished in about an hour. Come explore the rugged beauty, rural charm, and unique homesteading and organic farming Maine has to offer.
