Located in the quite town of Sebago, just minutes from the shores of Sebago Lake is a little farm nestled amongst the mountainous pine forests of Western Maine. The 70 wooded acres surrounding the farm have replaced the grazing fields of the past, but the barn and stone walls built by the Haley Family endure, waiting to be the perfect setting for your celebration.
Built c. 1817 by John Pugsley, on 125 acres of rolling pastures, fields, and forrest, it was taken over in 1847 by his son-in-law, William Haley, Jr., a veteran of the Civil War. William, his wife Miriam Pugsley, and their four children - Elzira, John, Sarah, and William, raised cattle, made butter and cheese from the milk of their dairy cows, and plowed the land with the help of their oxen. William's children continued to work the land until the passing of the Sarah in 1945, and it was purchased by the Usher Family. Fred ran a general store and Isabelle (a great-niece of William Haley, Jr.) raised their three children on the farm. Neighbors still remember buying tools and penny candy at the store. Two more families owned the farm from 1972 until 2015.
Today the farm is owned by Rich and Sarah Bianculli, along with their son Richard, daughter Evangeline, and two rescue pups, Simone and Scooter. After years of planning and searching for their perfect little piece of Maine, they found Haley Farm and are excited to live their dream and honored to write a new page in the history of this majestic retired farm.
We look forward to having the first day of your new journey together become a part of our history!
