Spruce Mill Farm grows a diverse variety of extended seasonal vegetables, raises pastured pork and meat birds and offers limited Community Supported Agriculture shares. Everything about the farm is sustainable and done as efficient as possible. Spruce Mill Farm is not certified organic through MOFGA but does apply all of the same practices to their growing techniques. Located in the heart of rural Maine, the farm is operated and owned by Dustin and Natasha Colbry.

Loyal To Our Soil
Dustin and Natasha both have roots in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. After graduating from Foxcroft Academy in 2005 & 2006 they headed west to Driggs, ID for a year of skiing and hiking at the base of the Grand Tetons. Following the urge to go back to school, they came back to Maine and attended The University of Maine Farmington where they were immersed in local agriculture, food, education and science. Through their natural science education they were able to have many opportunities volunteering and visiting with various farms around Farmington. During college Dustin coached freestyle skiing for Carabassett Valley Academy and Natasha worked at The Homestead serving, prepping food and catering. Dustin graduated with a BS in Environmental Science and Natasha graduated with a BA in Geology and Chemistry in May 2012. Post college, Dustin went on to apprentice under Eliot Coleman at Four Season Farm. Eliot is well known for creating modular cold frames and growing through all four seasons in Maine. Prior to the growing season of 2014, Natasha worked for Sanborn Maps operating aerial cameras.
It’s important to Dustin and Natasha that they promote their farm not only for the benefits of eating local and healthy but also using it as an educational tool for the local youth. Maine has an aging population and youth retention is vital to keep a healthy economy in the near future.
