Erickson Fields Preserve
Rockport, ME 04856 United States (207)236-2739 http://www.mcht.org/preserves/erickson-fields-preserve.shtml
The Erickson Fields Preserve, located in the town of Rockport, is managed by Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s (MCHT) Aldermere Farm staff. Erickson Farm was a dairy farm for many generations, until the Erickson family stopped farming the land in the 1980’s. The family welcomed Aldermere Farm to manage the fields for hay and for grazing Belted Galloway Cattle. When the Erickson Family ultimately decided they needed to sell the land they worked closely with MCHT staff in partnership with Maine Farmland Trust (MFT) to preserve the farm property. MCHT and MFT recognized the value of preserving rapidly disappearing farmland, maintaining a significant green space close to the center of Rockport village, and providing an opportunity to utilize the land as a community resource.
