Past and present farming experience:

I grew up on a small farm in Alfred, ME., growing vegetables and digging in the dirt since I was five years old.
We also raised sheep, pigs, chickens, rabbits, a goat and a rescue horse.
Several years ago, I did some WOOFing across the country on my road trips, and got to experience different farming practices in different parts of this country.
I worked with others to start up some small community farms in Albuquerque, NM and Asheville, NC , and have worked on bigger farms in southern Maine
It's part of who I am, and a huge piece of my heart.

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

My farm vision :

The farm is based on the foundation of Coming back to the earth, Coming back to the body.
In a healing kind of a way.

The farm is not a 'typical' farm, there are several yet viable branches to the farm, all of which work and link together, creating community, connection and fortifying sustainable practices.

The farm will have produce and herbs and flowers . The flower field will be a 'pick your own' endeavour, the vegetables will be used to sell and harvest 'in house', providing food for community potlucks/gatherings and workshops. Herbs will be grown and cultivated for tinctures, salves, soaps, etc. and sold at the farmstand ( on the property ) which will also be a place for local artists to have and sell/share their artwork.

The barn will be used for hosting workshops and classes based on living fully and farming with the earth - any thing that fits within the realm of - sustainability, community, re-wilding, healing, bio-dynamic farming, etc.

*Other specific classes will involve more of a therapeutic approach- which focuses on recovery demographics ( ie. eating disorders, substance abuse, trauma/etc. )- and will integrate developing connection with the body and the earth - directly on the farm.

Animals on the farm are a 'further down the road' endeavor- I envision having rescue horses and other animals ( sheep, goats and chickens ) on the farm and integrating Equine Therapy into the picture.

The farm is a community-learning-farm -bringing people together, back to the earth, in a healing and vibrant way.
