Past and present farming experience:

I have been farming for 12 years now, 10 of which have been in Maine. These years have included managing a 120 acre educational farm with diversified vegetable and livestock, managing a certified organic vegetable CSA farm, and currently running my small flower farm of Dandy Ram Farm on leased acreage in Monroe. I am experienced operating machinery, installing farm infrastructure including greenhouses, building soil sustainably, marketing products, business planning, and managing many crops and livestock. I have participated in the apprenticeship program as well as the Journeyperson program through MOFGA.

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

I have been operating my current farm, Dandy Ram Farm, for 2 years now, with 10 years of growing the crops of flowers and sheep. My goal for my farm is to bring joy to my surrounding community through mutual aid models. My fresh flowers are sold on a sliding scale to support all income levels, with a % of gross sales being redistributed to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) farmland tenure, and many flowers being donated locally. I am a queer farmer and work to build a farming community that is inclusive to my experience as a trans gay man and other farmers of marginalized identities. I sell fresh flower bouquets to local stores, in vegetable CSA add ons, through a farm stand in Monroe, and a flower CSA. In the fall I harvest, make, and market evergreen wreaths and dried flower wreaths which are shipped across the country. I manage all my finances in spreadsheets and online banking systems including cash flow projections and actualities, profit and loss statements, enterprise budgets, and balance sheets. I update my farm plan each year to reflect my goals. I work full time for the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) supporting beginning farmers and plan to continue that work while farming part time. I currently net profit $10,000/ year. I am looking for farmland to purchase, ideally from a homesteader that has goals to keep their farmland maintained sustainably as they transition off their farm.
