The town of Unity is a tightknit, friendly, loving farming community in the heart of Maine. The people here know nearly everyone by name. Even if they don't know you, they will still smile at you and say hi. Downtown has cute houses, nice sidewalks and trails, and yummy places to eat. Many residents of Unity are farmers full-time, or hobby farmers, which means there is never a shortage of delicious fresh produce.

Unity, Maine is home to the famous Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners "Common Ground Country Fair" which draws over 60,000 attendance each year. There is gorgeous farmland, a lovely lake, one of the last remaining steam powered trains, and a highly rated college in town. Moreover, there is a large and growing Amish community. Don't miss their homemade donuts on Wednesdays and Saturdays!
I love the small-town charm and gritty local character of Unity! It's been a pleasure to live here for 4 years, and I am glad to have this home base for my small business. Thanks, Unity!
