Hedgehog Hill is a small farm
nestled in the foothills of Western Maine. We offer a large variety of plants, as well as herbs and everlastings. In the shop, there are several rooms filled with herbal wreaths,
tables with
dried flower arrangements,
decorated baskets, bouquets,
and swags.
A delectable selection of herbal teas, jams and jellies,
herbal vinegars and
and culinary herbs will tickle your palate. You will find potpourri, natural
moth repelling herbs, catnip,
dried materials. There are
several terraced display
gardens around the buildings, interesting shade
GARDENS on the
and two grape arbors
for a cool summer picnic.

Over the past thirty years, Hedgehog Hill Farm has been featured in magazines, newspapers and on television. It has been lauded for its location, for its gardens, for its beautiful products made of everlastings and herbs, and, most importantly, for the knowledge we shared with so many visitors. The books that Mark and Terry Silber, founders of Hedgehog Hill, have written and produced, have been praised for their clarity, inspiration, and extensive horticultural information.

The Farm:

“Asking Mark and Terry Silber for tips on starting seedlings is like asking Julia Child if she has any good recipes for chicken.” Lewiston Sun Journal

“Visitors range from area residents to Boston chefs, with others coming from as far away as Chicago, slotting in a trip to Hedgehog as part of their vacations.” Portland Herald

“After visiting Hedgehog…, a farm dedicated in large part to the culture of everlastings, I have come to think of them as not only beautiful when dried but even possessing in the field the subtle, leggy beauty of wild meadow flowers.” Horticulture Magazine

“… a horticultural showplace. Thousands of visitors each year buy seedlings or dried flowers and herbs; attend classes… or simply revel in the botanical paradise.” Associated Press

“Hedgehog Hill, a 150-year old Currier and Ives farmstead at the end of a dirt road…” Down East Magazine

The Books:

"A Small Farm in Maine adds new luster to the old phrase 'Yankee ingenuity.'" Chicago Tribune

The Complete Book of Everlastings:

"A bounty of information ... straightforward text, plenty to keep one busy while nestled indoors." Christian Science Monitor

Growing Herbs and Vegetables from Seed to Harvest:

“a wealth of knowledge to share, and their lifelong love of gardening spills readily onto the pages.” The Herb Companion
