historic farm IN GREENE, ME

 Grand View Farm is owned and operated by Dan and Michelle Kary.  The pair are also owners of Vignola Cinque Terre. This historic farm in Greene, Maine has had its land cultivated since the 1780s and grows produce and meats exclusively for Vignola Cinque Terre.

In season, the farm’s three acres of cultivated gardens and orchards supply over a quarter of the fresh fruits, herbs, and vegetables used by Chef Ryan and his staff at Vignola Cinque Terre. The farm is a tremendous resource for the restaurant, where the staff can interact with the foods they serve and understand what it takes to grow them.  The Karys are passionate about growing their own food for the restaurant. They believe that the freshness and variety of the farm’s produce creates not just a meal but a culinary experience. 

Grand View Farm is still growing with new additions each year. A year ago, bees were brought to the farm to produce honey.  Only a year later, the honey has won recognition as "Best Honey" in a blind taste test conducted by the Maine Beekeeper's Association.  The farm now also has a greenhouse, which allows Grand View Farm to supply fresh herbs & produce to the restaurant year round.
