Small Feat Farm shares spaces with Caswell Farm & Wedding Barn in Gray. 

We’re back from a summer hiatus, and like everyone, we cannot believe how quickly this dreamy season has gone. School begins for us next week and while it’s going to take time for our family to re-adjust to a regular routine, we are so glad one of our new summertime traditions will continue through the fall — namely, wood-fired pizza nights at Small Feat Farm, a flower and vegetable farm in Gray.  In addition to growing flowers, husband and wife team Joanna Kraft and Brian Rhodes-Dewey, host monthly pizza nights with their business partner Catherine Caswell.

You have to love a getaway that’s less than 30 minutes from your home, but makes you feel as if you’re hundreds of miles away. In our case, Maine Forest Yurts, which is located in Durham, is such a place. The 100-acre retreat, which opened in 2013, is owned and operated by Bob Crowley, winner of the reality series “Survivor: Gabon,” his wife, Peggy and their adult children. The secluded property includes three yurts, wide trails to explore, a fairy house village and a shallow pond that’s great for skating.
