Past and present farming experience:

We're career farmers, recently moved to Maine to find our own land. We have several years experience with dairy cows, cheese and other raw milk products, many seasons of vegetable growing, some within larger CSA based models and others with smaller scale biointensive gardening. We have raised pastured pork, including slaughtering and meat curing experiences and raised a variety of fowl for meat and eggs. We have experience making jams and jellies, fermented vegetables and salsa, kombucha, and fruit wine. We have experience shepherding goats, training livestock guardian dogs, vermicomposting, sprouting feed, planting trees, etc.

Here is a summary of the vision for my farming future and/or business plan:

We believe that the needs of the land, in particular, should be addressed before a business plan is made to ensure the plan's longterm success. We have acquired the skills to produce a wide variety of products and will choose a focus on based on the strengths of the land itself and the desires of the market. We want to combine human, plant and animal systems to build soil and productivity. We will maintain protected wild areas, as we know that the diversity this contributes is essential to the health of the land, and we'll encourage its pathways throughout our land. We'll rotate our animals to prevent overgrazing and parasite issues; including grains, cover crops, annuals, even orchards in their right moments, in our rotations. Our plan is to create real wealth, from the bottom up. Healthy soil and animals. We think by diversifying our production to include all things we may want to eat, we can see what the market demands and expand within reason in those areas.
