Past and present farming experience:

I'm an out-of-work restaurant hospitality professional /gourmet cook from Maine and I'm all about the farm-to-table experience. I have many years experience growing organic herbs, vegetables, cooking and eating fine Maine food. My plan/dream is a saltwater farm (or near water) I need a HUGE barn to do my community dinners, lobster bakes as well as weddings (for the $$$!) I do sell antiques, vintage and recycled furniture. My planning would include solar panels on all of the roofs to be economical and self-sufficient. Possibly a work-for rent situation to help employees and/or guests live and learn how to grow and cook healthy inexpensive meals and supply me with labor. I would use the 4-5 bedroom in the farm house as income rentals via (Air B&B) for additional $$$ income. Serving breakfasts with my farm-fresh eggs! I would of course partner with other local farmer/fishers for my seafood and dairy. I would hire locals for dining service, cooking, cleaning and pay them well $$$! I do have interest in a documentary or filming of our experiences of the farm. I'm sure people would find the farm life interesting! We can call the show "Life On The Farm"
PS. I have many years experience in advertising, social media, photography, writing, cooking, hospitality and gardening, (I do have tons of photos to show my work)
