UNION, Maine — As part of a national celebration of trails, Medomak Valley Land Trust and Sweetgrass Farm Winery and Distillery will open the Carroll Farm trail along the Medomak River on Saturday, June 5.

Carroll Farm trail crosses 70 acres of diverse landscape, from working farmland and pasture to mixed woodland and grassy flood plains along the Medomak River. This event is free and open to the public, and a guided tour of the trails will begin after a 9 a.m. dedication ceremony.

Keith and Constance Bodine purchased the historic Carroll Farm property with the goal of preserving working farmland and open space while building Sweetgrass Farm Winery and Distillery which today produces a variety of wines and spirits using locally grown fruits, including heirloom apples planted by the Carroll family.

Local volunteers and Boy Scout Troop 207 helped create the trail.
