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

We are a young homesteading couple with a winning attitude, a passion for the planet and our community. We have been maintaining nearly two acres of permaculture gardens and a micro orchard for the last five years. Our farming practices are completely organic and focused on bio sustainability and soil regeneration. Our philosophy also focuses on sharing our homesteading knowledge and the care-taking of local communities through the use of hands on self-reliance skills. Everyone should know how to tap a maple tree, make a loaf of bread and grow their own food.

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

I have been working on various farm types for my entire life. I have experience with horses, goats,sheep, pigs, cows, poultry, rabbits, and organic mixed vegetables. I attended the University of Maine in Orono for Sustainable Agriculture, where I ran the Black Bear Food Guild for one season, with one other female. We implemented several of my ideas for the farm, which helped it to make a large profit for the first time in it's existence. I did not finish my degree at UMO for various reasons, some which were out of my control, but I gained a lot of information while there. I have since been growing a small farm in Exeter, Maine. I grow mixed vegetables for a market and I also do duck and chicken eggs. I also have two horses that are pets, but also as grounds keepers, and manure compost suppliers. I have outgrown my current location, which I am currently renting, and would like to move to a larger piece of land where I can expand my operation and eventually go full time.

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

I have been farming for 7 years on a variety of organic farms. My most recent position was managing a 4 acre diversified vegetable operation with a 140 member CSA. Before that I spent multiple years focusing on livestock management and hope to find a farm where I can integrate livestock in with annual vegetables and orchards.

I am passionate about building healthy soils and believe in the importance of regenerative farming practices to improve the land so that it will continue to be resilient and productive for generations to come.

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

I have been gardening and farming for over fifteen years. 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 gardens and 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, initiating 4 growing seasons of running my own cut flower farm. I grew on a half acre and marketed to wholesale accounts, studio florists, farmer's market, CSA, and did 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 a dual approach: using permaculture and biodynamic methods to grow medicinal herbs and flowers, and building a pollinator and native plant sanctuary. My desire is to grow medicinals to sell to established herbalists in the state; to develop a native plant nursery for retail and wholesale sales; and to offer folks educational resources around the how's and why's of growing and maintaining native plants and their vital role in the web of life, particularly through the lens of pollinator habitat.
