I love artisan pizza and went to Owen's Farmhouse with high expectations, based on reviews in local papers, on Trip Advisor and word of mouth. I have also dined at Owen's sister restaurant (50 Local) a few times and enjoyed my meals there. I'm in hopes that it was just an off day, and will give it another try in the future. My wife and I split the St.Onge pizza and salads. The salads were good, but not a bargain by any means...a few greens, some pickled onion and vinaigrette for $6.50 each. Despite the waitress' estimate, the salads are not really big enough to split between two people. The St. Onge pizza had great potential, but the crust was burned, which also resulted in the fresh garlic being burned as well, so that it was bitter and not sweet/savory. The pizza was supposed to be topped with fresh garlic, leeks, local mushrooms and pecorino; however I am still looking for the mushrooms. I think the chef may have overlooked them on our pizza, I fully expected to come away excited about a great pizza place in Kennebunk, but have to say that Owen's runs at least a distant third to the products produced by Flatbread Company in Portland and Otto's in Portland, as well as First and Last Tavern in Scarborough (Pine Point). I hate to whine and complain and sincerely hope that my experience was just a one time faux pas, since other reviews show that they can do much better.
