McKay Farm & Research Station
Locally grown, sustainably produced.
McKay Farm and Research Station is Unity Environmental University’s multi-faceted greenhouse and field facility in Thorndike, Maine. Originally known as Half Moon Gardens, McKay Farm and Research Station was gifted to Unity Environmental University in December 2013 by Isabel McKay and Rick Thompson.
Today, it is a working production farm, with herbs and edible flowers produce available in local grocery stores. Certified by Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, the five greenhouses and one-acre production fields showcase the next generation of sustainable agriculture. Additionally, the farm provides contract growing services and rental space in the greenhouse and fields.
