Beautiful well groomed trails that are ranked by the downhill skiing shapes. Circle (easiest), square (intermediate) and diamond (difficult). Since I am a downhill skier and just recently started Cross Country Skiing, that was nice for me. Although the trails were well groomed when I went, they were icy and since I am a fairly new XC skier, that was not the most fun. Joe Buzzell Lane is mostly flat with a few hills and takes you right back to the parking lot, however, not Buzzel Extension. We took Buzzel Extension and it took us right off the loop and out around the entire farm. We ended up spending 2hr and 12m out on the trail then an hour which was what we expected. We then got back hungry. The farm did not have many snacks but they did have really good cookies and bottles of water to help our hunger and thirst. You had to pay for them, but they were only a dollar ($3.00 total for one bottle of water and two cookies). They are also cash only so bring cash.

Maine Maple Weekend!
Mar 2019 • Friends
Harris Farm is also known for their maple syrup. We went there for Maine Maple Weekend, and they had so much going on -- horse-drawn carriage rides and pancake breakfast, fresh maple donuts, maple cotton candy and kettle corn, fresh bottled milk in several flavors, and of course, their maple syrup. No free samples of anything, though, which was surprising because most other maple farms do it during Maple Weekend.

Second time skiing here and love this place for cross country. Great, clean equipment and boots, family-run business, everyone so nice & helpful! The trails were beautiful on Sunday! Can't beat it for $30 to ski & rent. Beautiful property and trails clearly marked. So glad we found this place.. also - about 5 minutes to Funky Bow for apres ski!

Great late season skiing for a beginner
Mar 2018 • Solo
I went very late in the season. There were a few bear patches but there was lots of skiable trail suitable for a novice like me. (I have only been on skis 4 times counting this trip.) I got there right after they opened so the snow was initially pretty hard but they were actively grooming the trails. As the day progress the snow softened up. I had a wonderful time and I can only imagine how much better it would be in peak season.

Winter sports in Southern Mine
Oct 2016 • Solo
Bill and Dixie Harris have built a beautiful cross country ski experience in Dayton, Maine. Miles of easy and intermediate trails traverse the woods and pastures of this working dairy and vegetable farm. Don't forget to pick up your milk, eggs, maple syrup and grass-fed beef before going home!

In the warmer months, the farm store has a wide variety of vegetables. They are famous locally for their super sweet corn, and autumn would not be complete without one of their pumpkins.

Great Farm Store
Jul 2016 • Friends
Fresh milk of all flavors...the coffee and strawberry are delicious. Coming in returnable glass bottles and bursting with freshness and flavor. Daily fresh vegetables of all types from the garden...tomatoes, cucumbers, corn, onions, peppers, green and yellow beans, potatoes, squash, and more. Of course, there is fresh beef in the freezer as well. We have made some amazing salads from the Harris Farm...sweet corn too. You can literally watch the herd of cows come home from grazing to be milked. You know the milk is super fresh. Yes, they have Cross Country skiing during the winter months. But the summer and fall farm and store are awesome. A lovely location and pretty country ride from anywhere. Take a drive to Dayton...you will love it Harris Farm.
