Welcome to Cultivate!

Belfast Area FARM and ARTS Trail

Developed by the Belfast Creative Coalition, in partnership with the Maine Farmland Trust, this trail highlights the richness of art, culture and agriculture in and around 26 coastal and rural communities in midcoast Maine.

This website has full descriptions, hours, image tours and suggested nearby attractions. New locations are continually being added online. All locations are within 30-45 minutes driving time from Belfast.
> Brochures and printed maps are also available at the Belfast Chamber Visitor Center at 14 Main Street, Belfast ME 04915 (DIRECTIONS HERE).

Using Belfast as your base, you can venture forth on day trips that are as varied as the surrounding landscapes. Gather ingredients for a picnic lunch from any of Belfast’s numerous cafes and carryouts before you leave town, or enjoy discovering the terrific local eateries that dot the villages and towns you visit.


Take your kids to a working farm and watch them learn how to gather eggs, meet artists who live and work in the homes they’ve built by hand, and even discover what it is like to sleep in a yurt.

The map identifies artist’s studios, galleries, cultural organizations and farms in Belfast and beyond. Have fun creating your own itinerary, or use the ones we’ve suggested here. If you enjoy hiking, biking, boating or skiing, we’ve got that covered too! Midcoast Maine’s countryside, with all of its hidden treasures, is waiting for you.


FALL TOUR! Columbus Day Weekend, 2014, from 10-4pm, Cultivate will have a free,  open studio and farm tour with special workshops and demonstrations. Visit farms, artists’ working in their studios, see a forging demonstration, or learn how they make yarn, soap or cheese!
