lush landscape of Starflower Farm

Starflower Farm and Studios in Monroe, Maine, is an arts-focused workshop/retreat center and farm with a renovated 3 chimney farm house, 150 acres of rolling fields and pastures, an apple orchard, deep virgin forests, perennial flower and herb gardens, and a large ceramics studio with five guest studio spaces for any type of creative work.

Workshops and retreats are held throughout the year, with offerings ranging from pottery to vision quests. The main house includes a separate 4 room retreat apartment with a meditation nook and sauna. All studio and house spaces look out on inspiring and gorgeous land. Please look over our website for more extensive information and images.

The center’s owner, founder, and director, Squidge Liljeblad Davis (see resumé on the faculty page), is a potter, sculptor, counselor, teacher, and spiritual mentor who is deeply committed to the natural ecology of the earth as a source of artistic inspiration, spiritual nourishment, collaboration, and healing. After four and a half decades of creative activity on this exceptionally beautiful land, she is wishing/needing to simplify, and is building a small solar house with its own driveway and 25 acres of land on the property. She is seeking a couple, family or collective to purchase the house, studio, business and remaining land, and is offering the property at a reduced price from the original $475 for the perfect buyer/collaborator. Without collaboration for the transition, the house, studio and 25 acres is $350. New owners, in any event, must hold a deep respect and compatible view of this land's integrity, potency and beauty.
