Industry, Maine

"Plenty of old hippies, die hard hippies, new hippies and a bunch of drunk ones too you. Ever hear of Hempstock? That's in the town right next to us. Then Harvestfest isn't too far away either."

My Score:
You might find some hippies in Industry, if you grew up there and your family was there for 7 generations. Mostly hicks & rednecks, eeewwww! Greenfield, Massachusetts = lot's of super cheap apartments in phunky old farmhouses. Skinny dipping along the Green River. Free summer concerts at Industry Park. Plenty of young hippies, also a large community of older hip kynd folks from the 60's. Easy to hook up. Musicians, artists, writers, craftspeople, kynd folks in Greenfield, MA. We hang out at Cafe Koko, Greenfields Organic Market, the Peoples Pint, Casa Verde, Herms. Summer of Love 2006 - Greenfield, Mass. - odn't miss it!

i spent a week in industry last spring. cool place, but not much to do except snowmobiling on the frozen lake. we went into "town" a couple times, and there's a sweet store there called liquid sunshine with all kinds of hippie stuff.

Went to Harvestfest, first 'fest ever but my brother has been to nine. Can't wait for the many fests to come...got rained out this year, but spring will be here soon! Starks is a nice secluded area, plenty of hicks..plenty of hippies around (not necessarily in Industry or Starks, or whatever, but around Maine in general) and in NH too. If you're ever in Starks, stop by the field for a fest, you won't be sorry.

There aren't many hippies in Industry, or even Farmington for that matter. But maybe that's not what a hippie haven is all about. Maybe all that means is that it's a place where a hippie can go and have a good time, you know? I love vacationing in Industry just because it's secluded, peaceful and beautiful. Some areas do seem home to more hillbillies than hippies, but I don't mind that at all. It's a simple place where the road stretches for miles and the hills are alive with the smell of cannabis (if you know the right spots).

My Score:
I live in Farmington (next town over, the one with the wal-mart and movie theater and all the stores), and have to say that although there is some decent Purple Indica usually grown by folks in industry, and although there is a really relaxed attitude towards weed, Industry is not a hippy haven at all! People around here smoke a lot of dope, but that doesn't make them hippies. Industry is comprised of 90% goat-screwing hillbillies (at least two cases can be varified), and about 10% hippies. News Flash, Hippies don't live in trailers. Hillbillies do. I'm friends with some of those Industry hillbillies and they can be pretty cool, but you'll pay $40 per 1/8 for moderately decent weed with the occasional seed. I did better than that living in the ultra expensive suburbs of Boston. Although the relaxed attitude about weed could be cool, the people here are just backwoods republicans who are so isolated that they are just unaware of the fact that pot was ever made illegal. If Industry is a hippy haven, then so is every hillbilly hamlet up and down the Appalachian mountains.

Industry is actually a pretty nice place. I have a cottage up there on Clearwater Lake. It's like 10 minutes away from a huge Wal-Mart you can roam when you're baked. There's also a nice store that sells like tapestries and Grateful Dead stuff, Phish stuff, incense, hemp and things like that. There's a movie theatre and restaurants, and some really serene trails to hike. Chill City.

I have been told by a friend from Industry that Industry is a very very small comunity that is full of nothing but hicks. he said that they dont really have anything there either. I would like to go there anyways to see what new england is like....

Actually, I have been looking to buy some land in the Industry for a getaway from my home just north of Boston. Some place to build a humble log cabin, and kick back at occasionally. What sort of folks live there? Old hippies would be fine with me.

Where is Industry? It ain't on the map! I know Portland, Kittery, on up to Rumford and Rangely Lakes.
