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

I have 5 years experience with chickens and 1 year experience with alpacas. I ran an under the table egg business consisting of about 20 hens at any given time during high school, and occasionally helped out at the now defunct alpaca farm that was our neighbors. I have something of a mentor sheep-wise in Hawthorne and Thistle farms, and will be taking MOFGA classes once I purchase a car(which if all goes well will be 1/17/2020). In bullet points I have experience:

•maintaining a clean and healthy enviorment
•waking early to feed and water
•continous ice breaking in winter
•body inspections, including teeth and hooves
•lifting live animals up to 100 lbs
•moving circular bales without machinery(with help, of course)
•beak and talon trimming, washing, and other show prep
•humane culling of genetically incompatible with life birds
•humane slaughter for meat(have only done this once)
•processing wool, both sheep and alpaca, from fresh sheared fleece to yarn

Robin currently does not have farming experience but he's smart, a fast learner, stubborn, and really wants to do this, more than anything.

I've been farming for 7 years now starting with a 4x4 plot in my parents backyard amd quickly expanding that into a self sufficient garden to my myself and family. From there I worked on an 18 acre farm that served a 250 person CSA and local restaurants. After 2 seasons at that farm I managed a 3 acre CSA farm serving 140 CSA Members and an onsite farm stand. This year I have moved from my home Long Island, NY to Maine to Co-manage Frith Farm in Scarborough.

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

We are a husband and wife medical cannabis cultivators- stuck in limbo by Maine local municipalities general reluctance to embrace the fastest growing job producer in the world- cannabis. We have 15 years experience cultivating cannabis from seed to finished, cured harvest. We are looking for a farm to grow a Tier IV Recreational Cannabis Cultivation Facility, totaling 20,000 square feet of plant canopy. This translates to somewhere around 1000 plants. We grow in small raised beds and provide all material components of the farm ourselves, including the boxes and dirt. We are willing to pay a monthly rent or include the farm owners on a higher payout after harvest or even a flat out purchase. The caveat here is that of 400 municipalities statewide, only a handful have opted into allowing cannabis cultivation. We can't initiate the cultivation license request in a community we don't live in and can't go buying land in a community that won't commit to opting in. Our own home town is refusing outdoor growing (can you even imagine that?- this is the driver of our exodus from Windham) We are trying to stay within a commutable distance from Portland so I can keep my day work until harvest time and hire help for the assistance needed farming.

My farming experience comes from my background of growing up on a healing center in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Lacking direction in life I found farming to be a motivation and skill I could develop. Farming has taken me to Costa Rica, France, and many other parts of the world. I am trying to build relationships and contacts for starting my own operation in the beautiful state of Maine.

I currently market garden an 3/4 of an acre, with two high tunnels one being 72 x 24 "NRCS funded" an 38 x 18 I purchase from Penn State, balance outside tunnels.
I cleared the land removed trees I planted in 1974 and truck in 35 tons topsoil I pulled from a farm that was growing into a housing development.
I have spent ten years plus taking PASA and Penn State workshops including their new farmer 12 week class among many others. I have based the past three years of Clean Slate Farm LLC business on selling to small restaurant owner operator chefs. Since I work full time for the Pa. Bureau of Forestry it's difficult to sell any other way.
With retirement approaching next spring, we are looking at moving back to the Bar Harbor area and a small acreage organic vegetable operation will be apart of that retirement plan.
