While we do have open farm trail days on occasion, we ask that the property otherwise not be used by the public for recreation, hunting, fishing or foraging and that dogs be kept off premises, as this poses an immediate threat to our children, herding and livestock guardian dogs, livestock and our overall bio-security.
We run all aspects of the farm as a family, therefore, we ask that you call first to schedule pick ups so we do not miss you while working in our back fields, homeschooling our children or spending time off of the farm. We are away from the phone more often than not so please leave a message or email us!
According to the history of Durham, Maine, Nathaniel Osgood and his brother, Aaron Osgood moved to Durham in the early 1780's from Deerfield, New Hampshire. However, the Osgood's had originally been from the Amesbury, Massachusetts area. Nathaniel had apparently served in a regiment of Colonel Bagley in the Revolutionary War and Bagley was the proprietor of Royalsborough later to become Durham. Bagley sold lots in Royalsborough to men who had served under him. It is believed that Osgood purchased the land in 1779.
