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

Looking for a farm to purchase, live on, steward and potentially develop w our family as a business. I used to work on farming and had business plans in the past but don't have a farm plan at the present. My husband Dan is a successful entrepreneur and realtor with capital to invest in land, so we are working out our vision and business plan. We have 5 kids between us and a studio/business in Brewer, so we can't MOVE far from Bangor now. However, if we found a small farm within 20 min of Bangor, we could move, OR we are open to purchasing a farm within 20 min and leasing/hiring farm managers to develop it into a studio/farm/school with us. Dan and I have a variety of professional business, agriculture, trades and and educational experience and expertise. Seeing what is available for land and farms in the Bangor vicinity would help to inspire and construct our plan.
