Skylandia Farm Winter Residency 2021!

Calling all writers, artists, creatives, deep thinkers, and people yearning for pandemic-pod winter retreat in Northern Maine! Skylandia Farm is offering a low-rent winter residency in the far north of Maine. We are looking for 3-5 creative individuals looking for a warm, communal household to form a pod with intention. This 3-month winter residency is located in a small town in a wide-open natural environment. With individual and shared spaces, a cedar-shingled farmhouse, and 500 acres of land, Skylandia Farm is a perfect place to connect with fellow creatives and hunker down for a winter of living intentionally with a small group of like-minded souls.

Skylandia Farm 2020 News

Like many people, the pandemic turned our summer plans topsy-turvy. Skylandia Farm is located in Northern Maine, right on the Canadian border. We usually host guests all summer long in our beautiful Farm House. In the past, biologists, plein air painters, and families on vacation have stayed with us. This year, it’s been quiet. Our family land steward, Leah Cook, has tended the gardens and walked the land, listening to the ways our wild neighbors amble when human presence is scarce. With our 40 acres of organic fields planted in buckwheat and oats (relatively low impact crops), Skylandia Farm has been a quiet sanctuary for the creatures that our family and guests share an ecosystem with. Black bears, moose, bald eagles, osprey, beaver, fox, raccoon, coyote, and many others have wound their trails and footpaths through the wild meadows or forests this summer.

Due to the pandemic, we are closed until the end of the year. We are sharing the balm and solace of the Earth via our Skylandia Farm newsletter, so please join it! It’s sporadic, fascinating, and filled with photos, land-based news, and both artwork and poetry that sings the beauty of the Earth into our hearts. Join the newsletter here>>
