    Farm ID 2357
Property Description:

Farm not for sale but willing to share place, space, skills and sustenance.

Beyond a common farm or market garden experience, this is deep immersion in homestead and outdoor proficiencies in cooperative effort. Consideration given to your goals and proposed term duration. May include subsistence allowance, scholarships, off-site activities and completion bonus plus options on lodging, personal crops and livestock.

Recently acquired homestead-farm-forest site in Northern Maine well outside of town with exceptional isolation from wind drift of agricultural sprays and GMO pollen. Ample acres of open and arable soils in addition to pasture, forest and water. Presently involved in thoughtful development of new homestead & farm facilities having relocated from a previous farm.

Site and views are beautiful with abundant access to wild expanses including nearby Mount Katahdin, Baxter State Park, KWW National Monument and the Maine segment of the International Appalachian Trail.

The primary steward of this place has an academic and professional background in conservation; years of broad community involvement; and decades of homesteading and farming, market gardening, woodsmanship and outdoor activities. Complementing farm and domestic activities, there is vigorous pursuit of hiking, paddling, hunting, fishing and foraging with active appreciation for academics, art, music, considerate spirituality, community and discerned technologies.

While economics are reality, selective commodity and value-added production is secondary to sustainability, stewardship and sustenance here. Studied deliberation and holistics guide methodologies. Off-site inputs and tech are intentional and minimized. Human and draft power is favored over fossil energy.

“Individuals who learn the values and skill-sets of deliberate agrarianism and outdoor lifestyle are key to a more humble, sustainable and productive community, whether rural or urban, locally and beyond”.

Inquiries are welcome with expedient consideration given. References required with statement of interest. Minimal prerequisites limited to an open mind, a well-intentioned heart and good health. The primary standards are simple: integrity, flexibility, communication and kindness.

“The information herein is believed to be accurate, but not warranted and should be verified by the buyer.”
