The Seedling sale is happening this spring. For details (days/times), see the Stoneset Farm Facebook page. There is also a list of flowers and a list of vegetables/herbs on Google Docs.


Welcome! Stoneset Farm is a small homestead located in Brooklin, Maine that is the home and workplace of the Rutenbeck family – Clara, Nathan, Eleanor, Margaret, and Matthias. Though we do not currently produce any commercial agricultural products for sale, we still have a lot going on that you may be interested in. Follow the links above for more information regarding farm and family happenings, forestry consulting services, and Nathan’s scientific and philosophical research.

“We have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us. And that requires that we make the effort to know the world and learn what is good for it.” 

– Wendell Berry
