Past and present farming experience:

I grew up on a small, multi-species farm in Maryland, and did a lot of showing and learning through 4-H. I've shown/trained sheep, pigs, horses, dogs, and llamas. as a young adult, I gained work experience on a conventional dairy farm and professional horse boarding/breeding farm. I graduated from college with a BS in Animal Science and a minor in Equine Science. In college I became very interested in sustainable farming, and sheep dairy. I currently travel Maine as a professional sheep shearer, and am looking for a place to start my own small diversified, sustainable farm

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

my main goal is to run a sustainable sheep dairy, with cheese, yogurt, and milk being primary products produced, and wool, lamb meat, and hides, being secondary products. side productions to be incorporated in the sustainability of the farm would be hay, vegetables, fruit trees, chickens/eggs, hogs/pork, and possibly diary or beef cows.
