Bee-friendly farming for a sustainable tomorrow

Welcome to the Runamuk Acres Conservation Farm

Runamuk Acres is a family-owned farm run by Samantha Burns, with her son, BraeTek. Located amid the mountains of Western Maine, we produce mixed vegetables, fresh eggs, raw honey, baked goods, and pastured lamb on our 53-acres. To promote the well-being of beneficial insects and soil microbial life, Runamuk practices methods of conservation agriculture. We believe that the conservation of these keystone species allows for the development of a more sustainable agricultural ecosystem which coexists in harmony with its larger ecosystem and ecoregion.

In 2020, conservation lands at Runamuk Acres were contracted to the USDA/NRCS for a 50-year commitment to wildlife preservation. With miles of trails running through the conservation lands, open to hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, or biking, we offer visitors a chance to connect with nature. Visitors can enjoy birdwatching, view wildlife, and connect with nature in this private wildlife preserve. With a remote campsite available, a guest room for farmstays, and an on-site farmstand, the Runamuk Acres Conservation Farm welcomes visitors year-round.

Runamuk offers year-round local food access, boasting a 40-household CSA program, as well as an on-site farmstand, and now serving exclusive farm-to-table breakfasts and dinners to farmstay guests.
