Past and present farming experience:

I lived and worked on a 40-acre homestead in Athens, Maine for five years in my mid-twenties as an apprentice and then farm manager, and am finally at a place where I can return to Maine in the hopes of renewing farming activities. We are looking for a small plot to rent or buy, or a partnership opportunity. We have experience keeping meat and laying chickens and bees, syruping, and growing organic vegetables and fruit trees.
