  • Description


    Our farm is nestled on 11 acres of mainly forested land in rural, artistic Midcoast Maine (a 20 minute scenic drive from the coast). We are passionate about chemical-free bees, poultry, hops, medicinal herbs, mushrooms and perennial pollinator gardens. I currently host guests and offer Reiki and Herbal Medicine at our farm store and at the Farmer’s Market. My approach to farming is that it is a sacred practice. I have two curious daughters ages 3 and 5. We are located across the street from the local swimming hole, so why not jump in on a hot day after working on the farm? Maine offers so much natural beauty to explore.

  • Help


    Helpers can expect to tend to the birds, bees, gardens, guest rooms, carpentry projects and general maintenance and landscape. There are plenty of projects on the farm and I like to pair projects with the interests and skills of helpers when possible.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I learn as much from others as they learn from me. Here, we like to live close to the land and eat fresh, organic food. Farming is about community and a joyful, hardworking lifestyle. It is healing.

  • Accommodation


    Current accommodations include a room in the farmhouse, a traditional tipi in the meadow, tent camping, rustic barn space. A separate barn studio living space is being constructed this year with entirely re-purposed materials. My diet is gluten free, but we can accommodate the dietary needs of any guest.

    We are a short drive from the coast. I highly recommend taking time off to explore the waterways and all of the beauty that Maine has to offer.
