  • Description

    Description

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

    I will be attending 2 farmer's markets weekly May through October. We are planning to expand the vegetable gardens this year and produce more value added products.

    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 happy to share what I know about farming and teach about the rare breed of pigs I raise.

    My daily chores include feeding and watering animals, and during the warmer months planting, watering, weeding and harvesting of the garden, jam or soap making or baking breads and treats. Some 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. There are a couple of thresholds that are in need of repair by someone with carpentry skills and we're overdue for some exterior home staining. I also have an instant garage frame that I'd love to have moved to a new location and some woods trails that could use some clearing. Our horse has become an overweight pasture pet and would benefit from some experienced horse handling & exercise. I sometimes need computer/internet assistance, some help learning Spanish would be nice as would beginner violin instruction. If you have something to offer that isn't mentioned here, please chime in!
