Past and present farming experience:

Small, successful farm business seeks a new home! Wild Folk Farm (wildfolkfarm.com) is in search of five or more acres with a house.

Our farm began as a CSA in 2004 and you-pick strawberry farm, started experimenting with growing rice and then founded the Maine Rice Project; a project committed to exploration and consulting to inspire rice cultivation in Maine with a commitment to statewide food security. In 2018 we became one of Maine’s first MOFGA-MC3 certified CBD medicinal hemp producers, and we continue to thrive today. We produce organic, high potency, small batch herbal tinctures and salves incorporating ethically harvested and wildcrafted local herbs and plants. We sell our rice and herbal medicinals in over 50 locations throughout Maine alone, and have a nationwide CBD clientele base.

Presently, Wild Folk Farm is seeking a property to house ourselves and our small production operation on quality, farmable land (a minimum of 5 acres). We hope for our future home to be a destination for learning and community engagement- no property is too large if the price is right and the land is suitable. We are committed to people-powered permaculture, no till practices, mutual-aid, and land stewardship.

We no longer grow the majority our own hemp following the 2018 Farm Bill, and instead support small, local, organic certified growers for our hemp supply. A location that affords the ability to grow hemp would great but isn’t mandatory for us!

Our business and projects are doing well, but need a permanent home to reach their full potential. Before the pandemic, our farm regularly provided seasonal work for many folks in our community We’d like to continue our tradition of creating space for opportunities, engagement, and exchange related to food and medicinal plants, permaculture, and experiential learning.

Our hope is to find a property in Downeast, Midcoast, or Central Maine, but we’re open to all possibilities. Thanks for reading!

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

We have a business plan and our business is already operational. Our goals are: To continue to grow and expand our capacity for crafting small batch, locally sourced organic herbal preparations. To further the Maine Rice project as a resource for small scale grain propagation and research. To produce as many raw materials for our products as we can from the land we live on or the small community we live within. Those raw materials could include, honey, wax, maple, apple cider vinegar, medicinal herbs, fruits and berries, wild edible and wild medicinal plants.
