The History

Owner Annette “Nettie” Cochran has always loved animals and has added many/ hobbies and skills to her repertoire over the years. In 1983, Nettie drew up the plans for her future A-frame home and, with her father’s help, laid the foundation. By 1987 the house was complete, and in 1992 they began producing maple syrup. Needing a name for their brand, they looked around the heavily forested property and realized they had no nice views. Hence, the name was born. Eventually, neighbors cleared out some trees which granted No View Farm the gift of mountain and river views. She continued adding to the house and the property until it became what it is today.No View Farm, Inn and Bakery is one of our awesome Harvest Hosts locations in Maine.
