With a population of 7,400, Farmington is located near the foothills of western
Maine's mountains. It is centrally located 63 miles northwest of Portland and is
a progressive college community, home to the University of Maine Farmington campus.
It is a popular resort destination, known for its outstanding winter sports activities,
including snowmobiling and Nordic and alpine skiing. It is less than a 60 minute
drive from Sunday River and Sugarloaf, Maine's premier ski resorts.
Its access to area lakes also provide excellent summer and fall hiking, swimming,
boating, and camping opportunities. And its stunningly beautiful fall foliage makes
it one of the favorite destinations of fall foliage tours.
