Frinklepod Farm in Arundel features four acres in agricultural fields, a large winter greenhouse, and twelve wooded acres. Its permaculture-based farm design combines perennial crops, fruit trees and berries and permanent habitat for native species, along with annual crop production. In addition to growing the classics such as garlic, tomatoes, sugar snap peas and more, the farm will also produce some more unique items such as shiitake mushrooms, honey, sweet potatoes, and, in future years,paw-paws. Frinklepod Farm’s mission is to produce nutritious food for the community; to create a welcoming, educational farm experience for people of all ages; and to promote local, sustainable agriculture on small pieces of land in Southern Maine.

Visitors are invited to shop at the farm stand, explore the fields and surrounding woods, feed the flock of "rescued" chickens, and enjoy informal farm tours. The public is also invited to join the summer CSA. Frinklepod CSA members pre-pay for their purchases at the beginning of the season, earning bonus dollars to spend, creating debit-style credit at the farm stand. Members can then use their credit to purchase produce and other farm stand offerings, any time, in any quantity, throughout the season. CSA members can shop during the regular farm stand hours in addition to two additional "members only" times during the week, which follow a fresh harvest of crops. A winter CSA will be offered from November-February.

In addition to growing food for CSA members and other farm stand customers, a large plot of the farm will be dedicated to growing food for local food pantries and shelters through the University of Maine Cooperative Extension's "Harvest for Hunger" program. The farm welcomes volunteers to help with all aspects of this project, from planning which crops to grow, to planting and cultivating, to harvesting and distributing the produce to local organizations.
