Past and present farming experience:

Currently, we are small scale organic homesteading on our 1.88 acre farm raising layers, meat birds, pigs, bees and a large garden. We want to do so much more but our current space is maxed. We've been looking for a few years, but are unsure how to go about getting help to make the jump. We are professional chefs by trade and are ready and looking to incorporate that into our love for the earth, growing organic food and raising organic animals. We'd love to have space for a venue that we could cater events to supplement the farm.
Right now our current business is in Saco, so ideally we'd like to stay within driving distance to that for the time being.
