    We are a tiny Farmstead and family of 4 in Downeast Maine on the Blue Hill peninsula. We are about 1 mile from the ocean, 1 hour from Acadia national park, and our immediate area offers so much diversity of activity and interest. My wife and I are both in our mid thirties and our children are 3 and 6. I am a carpenter by trade and Ruthie works in a bakery and runs a small chai tea business. We raise Pigs and Chickens, have a small garden, and are moving towards providing the majority of our food. We have a number of building projects going on including building a timber frame garage/workshop and finishing our home. We heat with wood and are working the woods around our house to harvest firewood, lumber and clear land for more space for gardens and animals. Life here is active and full, we love our home and love to share it with interesting folks.

    Life here is so wonderful. Swimming, sailing, music, Islands, fishing, cross country skiing, hiking, exploring, foraging, growing food, a wonderful community of amazing people, this area is a gem! New England is a diverse place with so much history and Maine is a place that still holds on to some of it's old ways and feels worlds away from the rest of the country.

    We have a small cord wood cabin that could accommodate a couple or single person. The cabin is tiny but has a small kitchen with sink, stove and refrigerator. There is a woodstove for heat and a primitive outhouse for... you know. In the warmer months we have an outdoor shower and in colder months we use our hand built wood fired sauna for bathing.

    If you want to be more mobile, a car would be highly recommended but we do get out often and you would be welcome to come along. We have bikes and a lot can be explored that way. The water is 1 mile or so, multiple hikes within 3-4 miles, and the nearest town with stores and such is about 15 minutes.
