  • Description

    Description

    We have a 74 acre farm in the Mid-coast region of Maine where we raise animals with respect and dignity; pigs in the woods, pasture raise chickens and turkeys, free range chickens for eggs. We also have 2 dogs, 3 cats.

    I attend farmer's markets regularly May through October and sporadic markets throughout the winter. We have a new 30 x 72 high tunnel as well as various farm garden beds. Plans for 2021 include producing more value added products.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Mid coast Maine is a great travel/tourist destination. Portland is a great little city and is only 1.5 hrs away, the White Mountains have various offerings depending on the season within 2.5 hrs and Boston has much to offer 3 hrs away. Locally there are many hiking trails, swimming spots and beautiful views. I'm always happy to share what I know about farming.

    My year round daily chores include feeding and watering animals, during the warmer months we add seed starting, planting, watering, weeding and harvesting. We also fit in jam and soap making when needed, make balsam wreaths, balsam and lavender sachets and for the farmer's markets we also bake breads and treats.

    Carpentry skills are always needed on the farm! Help with family meals is welcomed, though you have a separate kitchen and we won't share all meals together. There is always a wish list somewhere be it home/farm maintenance or a small construction project, fence building, splitting/stacking firewood, removing trees killed by livestock, barn cleaning, stone wall repair, lawn mowing and basic landscape work.

    We're overdue for some exterior home staining. we're planning to replace some fruit trees, grapes, asparagus, strawberries and raspberries.

    I have an instant garage frame that I'd love to have moved to a new location and turn into a greenhouse. Woods trails could use some clearing and flower beds to be revived.

    I sometimes need computer/internet assistance, If you have something to offer that isn't mentioned here, please chime in!
