Bliss Woods Farm is a small sustainable homestead. We are growing our own food as well as creating an enriched habitat for studying and nurturing healthy animal behavior. You don’t need to have a dog to visit us! Stop by, bring your picnic, dig your toes into our soft grass. Guided garden tours are $5 per person, $25 per dog, and they give you a perfect opportunity to see how we grow organically in Maine.
