ROCKPORT — Two Maine Coast Heritage Trust farm preserves in Rockport offer self-guided, outdoor fun during Camden’s Christmas By the Sea.

Saturday, Dec. 5, Aldermere Farm, 20 Russell Ave in Rockport, invites the public to don their most festive (or ugliest) holiday sweaters and take a selfie with a Beltie in front of the pen connected to Aldermere’s Visitor Center, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. There will be Beltie Ornament making kits to take home and a collection slot for cash donations to fund supplying Aldermere beef to area food pantries.

After visiting Aldermere Farm, visitors may drive 5 minutes to Erickson Fields, 164 West St in Rockport, to immerse themselves in good book while they stroll through the forest and along the Teen Ag Crew garden that annually grows 20,000 lbs. of produce to supply the community and hunger relief agencies. Pages of The Fall Fairy Gathering by local author Liza Gardner Walsh are posted along the 1.4-mile loop trail.
There will be limited designated parking along Russell Ave at Aldermere Farm. Visitors are expected to follow the CDC’s guidelines for wearing masks and social distancing. Tips for preparing for outings to MCHT preserves are available online at
