According to the 2010 Census, the population of Farmington was 7,760 people.

The area was once territory of the Abenaki Indians where they had camps located near Farmington Falls and fields cleared for cultivation of maze and potatoes. In 1776 a group arrived from Topsham to explore the area and lay out a town which became called Sandy River Plantation. In 1794 Sandy River Plantation was incorporated as Farmington and named for its' unusually fertile soil. Agriculture was an important early occupation, with hay being the principal product. Orchards yielded fruits and Farmington also became one of the largest wool producing towns in New England. In 1879, the town became the southern terminus for the narrow gauge Sandy River Railroad (later part of the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes railroad), making it a gateway to the Rangeley Lake and Sugarloaf Mountain areas.
