About the Farm
Bambi Jones and Tracy Moskovitz bought the farm in 1978 with the help of Farmers Home Administration and began farming operations immediately. Their first customers included Slates Restaurant, farmers’ markets, restaurants and a year round retail produce stand. Hidden Valley Farm and Goranson Farm partnered for years with a retail outlet in the Hallowell area and at Damariscotta Farmers Marker. In 1992 Bambi and Tracy started the second CSA program in Maine which they ran through 2000. At that point, they began to reduce their farming activities, shifting their focus to forestry activities and growing seed garlic for Fedco and Johnny’s Select Seeds.
Bambi and Tracy’s main focus is on their forestry, recreational and educational programs at Hidden Valley Nature Center. HVNC operates on 1000 acres of their land, which they are currently working to protect. Bambi and Tracy and HVNC received the 2014 Maine Outstanding Tree Farmer Award.
