Seeker(s) past and/or present farming experience:

My partner and I have a few years of farming experience of various kinds. We are interested to homestead and possibly do small-scale farming, on land in Maine. We are looking to lease or buy. We are flexible with some of the features we are looking for, especially if we are leasing, but we'd like to be on some cleared and some wooded land, with water on site, good exposure, and decent soil/drainage. Particularly if we are buying, we are looking for probably 10 acres min, with some wooded and some clear/pasture land (min 5 acres). We are interested in properties that are off-grid and/or have the potential to be off-grid.

Hello,

My name is Matt, I just moved up to Maine and sold my home down in New Hampshire. I live in biddeford and am using this place for the time being until I am able to rent a farm in York County. I worked on a farm in Oregon ,love to be in the country and get my hands dirty. I'm looking to rent a farm big or small to do a small patch of medical cannabis as well as an organic vegetable garden. I would love a 1-3 year lease if the property was perfect I would most likely end up staying longer. Also a thought I had would be to buy 3-10 acres and build a cabin if someone was willing to subdivide their property. I am a very hard worker and a jewelry designer by trade. I consider myself to be a very hard working, trust worthy, and a responsible guy. I am looking forward to moving as soon as possible. Spring is right around the corner.

We are beginning farmers/homesteaders and would welcome guidance from the existing owners of any farm we might consider purchasing. We have both been vegetable gardeners for years. Rachel has taken a Permaculture Design Course and we've done some experimenting with permaculture principles in our small yard and hope to create a more extensive food forest when we finally have the space to do so. We have raised chickens and worked on several small farms with goats, sheep, pigs, and chickens through WWOOF, also gaining insights and further developing our vegetable gardening, perennial fruit and herb knowledge.

Seeker(s) past and/or present farming experience:

While living in Florida, I purchased a 140-acre tract of woods and pasture in 1998 and began restoring the native longleaf pine, removing exotics, and establishing a small herd of Florida Cracker cattle. Additionally, I created habitat for bobwhite quail, wild turkey, black bear, and wood duck, (and alligator by accident) as well as other species. I enrolled in multiple conservation courses and programs and earned a USDA Forest Steward designation for our work both on the property and promoting land conservation to others via property tours, articles, interviews; I was also selected by Men's Journal and Jhane Barnes (fashion designer) as their Environmental Ambassador of the Year for this work and traveled to the Rolling Stone magazine offices in NYC to give a speech and accept the award. Since then, we have established a crop of sugar cane that we harvest and process into sugar cane syrup for sale at a local museum's pioneer day celebration. We still maintain this property with the assistance of cattle lease holders and friends.

We are not farmers; however, for the last 24 years, I have been co-owner and President of SEARCH, the largest archaeology and cultural resources management company in the world (www.searchinc.com) and I have a practical understanding of conservation, land management, amassing teams of experts, entrepreneurship, and marketing. Now that we have moved to Maine (in July 2018) we are ready to embark on an agricultural enterprise for the benefit our our family, community, and Maine, and to set an example that other professional/non-farmers can (and should!) embrace agriculture as a means of conservation.

I grew up with a family that has always loved animals and gardening. My mom finally found her dream hobby farm a couple of years ago, and I've spent hours on end helping out with chickens, ducks, dairy and beef cows, dogs, cats, and rabbits. I love the outdoors and gardening, and everything to do with farming. My significant other is from Peru and will be moving here with me soon. He grew up in the countryside where they had alpacas, cows, horses, sheep, dogs, and lived in a beautiful little hut on the farm. I got to visit his family from there and I've gotten to herd alpacas and sheep, wrangle alpacas and give them their medicine and fix their earrings (what they use to mark whose is whose there). I love animals and nature and the outdoors, and I'm looking for a farm to plant berries and fruit trees (particularly blueberries, cherries, and apples, but others as well), raise some cows sheep and hopefully goats or a pig or two. I'd love a couple horses and we are looking for a place that has a house on it.

I am 27 years old and I still live and work on the same family farm that I moved to when I was one year old. I have a literal lifetime of experience on this farm. I raise black angus and registered highland cattle and rotate them daily to new paddocks of pasture. I also raise pastured pork, pastured poultry, and pastured eggs. My brother is a garden guru, I do not know as much about planting and harvesting as he does but I am involved in the process and have enough experience to build upon and become a pro. My mother is from Maine, my wife and I have always longed to form our own farm business in New England. Southern summers are getting to be too much!
