North Yarmouth, since 1680, prides itself as a small, rural town north of Portland, Maine with a population of nearly 4000 people. Many local residents work in the greater Portland area, as well as in town. Freeport, Yarmouth, and Falmouth are nearby communities. It is bisected by the Royal River, a well-used source of community recreation, as it travels through North Yarmouth to the Atlantic.
Small businesses thrive here, including a convenience store, cafes, offices, and other companies. The golf course is, of course, very popular! The town has Christmas tree farms, orchards, greenhouses, and a garden center, assuring that it stays in touch with its prized agricultural roots. A MOFGA-certified organic farm is located on the Skyline Farm property. Annually, a popular business-to-business trade show is sponsored by the North Yarmouth Business Association, which represents many small businesses in town. There are churches, the Carriage Museum at Skyline Farm, beautiful parks, well-kept walking trails, and snowmobile trails.
