Farmingdale is a tiny little Maine town with more cows than people. I enjoy it here though- the natural world is vibrant and strong, and as an animal science major I think the biodiversity is just amazing- I have deer running through my backyard and coyotes howling at night.

I have lived in Farmingdale almost my whole life. Living here has its ups and downs. Being in Maine, it is generally safer than the rest of the country, though my street does seem to have the few, shall we say, interesting characters on it. However, my family is blessed to be surrounded by good neighbors. To the left are the Duponts, a sweet elderly couple who like to hear us play outside. And to the right live the Choates. Mr. Choate has been the kindest neighbor we could ask for. During the winter, he plows us out. In return, we buy our wood from him and I make him cookies. Farmingdale may be quiet and small, and honestly to visitors pretty dull. But it's home. Whether it be through the sight of snowdrifts and the smell of wood smoke, or the sound of the peepers, or the golden summer evenings, or the crunch of leaves underfoot or just the independent spirit of the people, the essence of Maine still manages to shine through in our town.
beautiful neighborhood (hayford heights area) rail trail, next to hallowell, an artsy little town with a few good eats, the state capitol (which has nothing to offer). a very boring place otherwise but 45 minutes to the ocean and 50 to portland. very safe. otherwise there is nothing to do here and people are not particularly friendly. they;ll wave to you but it's not an invitation
