Here is a summary of the vision for my farming future and/or business plan:

We are retired and moving to Maine to concentrate on farming for the next 100 years. As populations around the world are exploding, farm land is quickly disappearing. Our goal is to buy as many small farms as we can and place a well qualified farm. In the coming years. the greatest atrocity to humanity will be to have farmland that has no farmer.

We will be involved in establishing community kitchens and market sales for all our farmers.

Our plan is to be involved in the 50/50 plan for Maine. Maine really needs farmers at this time.
