 With only bootstrap funding, and a vision of creating a community hub centered on wholesome, organic (when possible), locally-sourced food and beverage, the Shed has since grown. Current offerings include a dine-in greenhouse, specialty beverages with flavorings and herbs sourced straight from the garden and locally-made hand crafted gifts, and (eventually) four- course dinners and homesteading and farming classes. Kate, who grew up working on a cattle farm in Maine, spent her summers traveling “Anthony Bourdain style.” Brian, originally from Kentucky, was co-owner of a brewery and ran a barbecue joint. The couple met when they were both working at a ski resort, and Kate had decided to “stick around for the summer.” Once they began raising their family, they soon realized they wanted a better way of life for their kids, and Maine seemed like the best place. They left Utah in 2018 and went “all-in” on their own farm. “We wanted to raise our kids with more culture, someplace less hectic, more connected to reality. Maine is beautiful. It has everything we need: mountains, the ocean, skiing ... history. It’s a wonderful place,” said Brian.

From the small-town feel, fascinating history and spectacular scenery, to their hip, happening vibe, Kingfield is a place you will want to explore. And with so many interesting, tasty and fun things to choose from, this is a place that will have you coming back again and again. Maybe, you might just want to call this home! ✲
