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

We both grew up in Vermont and were exposed to farming and homesteads. Chad helped his grandparents build two log homes from their land when he was a teenager. Robyn has fond memories of haying on her grandfather's dairy farm and feeding calves from the bottle at her uncle's dairy farm. Her parents always had a huge garden, beef cattle, and hogs. She learned about food preservation at a very young age and continues this tradition today often using her mother's recipes. Her grandfather & uncle also had maple sugar operations which she was a part of.
As adults we have worked on the following farms:
Chad: Field manager for large scale (50 acre) vegetable production farm in Norwich, Vermont, Farm teacher at "The Farm School" for adults in Athol, MA, field worker in Livingston Manor, NY. He is also a master gardener. Chad has many skills that come in handy on a farm. He was a mechanic for 20 years and can fix most farm machinery including tractors. He is also skilled in carpentry, electrical, and plumbing. We remodeled our last home (1913) from the ground up.
Robyn: Two different small raw dairies specializing in cheese, butter, and yogurt...one in Gill, MA, the other in Summit, OR. Large scale berry farm in Gill, MA. Robyn was also a Maine Registered Guide in her mid-20's and took people on many rivers throughout Maine. She fell in love with the diverse landscape, people, and natural world there.
We are currently in Maine as of May 21st, 2018 to live here permanently.

My partner Melyssa grew up in the Camden Hills area and has always wanted to have a farm. I am an electrical engineer and love all things engineering related. Melyssa is a laboratory scientist and has a passion for the outdoors.

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

I have been gardening and farming for over a decade. In 2006 I was a MOFGA apprentice at a permaculture homestead and tree nursery in Franklin Maine.
From there, I moved on to develop my own permaculture- focused homestead with livestock including poultry, dairy goats, honey bees, and meat rabbits, which I tended for 8 years. In 2013 I was accepted into the MOFGA Journeyperson program, which initiated 4 growing seasons of running my own cut flower farm, growing on a half acre and marketing to wholesale accounts, studio florists, farmer's market, CSA, and wedding design. In addition to my own farm, I have worked on 2 other flower farms in Maine as co-manager and harvest crew. With over 20 years of self-study in herbalism, today I am interested in focusing on permaculture and biodynamic growing of medicinal herbs and flowers. I am particularly interested in growing medicinals to be sold to established herbalists in the state, in addition to maintaining ample and diverse pollinator habitat including native and medicinal species.
