Past and present farming experience:

I have a small cut flower farm on the outskirts of Montpelier, VT called Old Time Flowers. I grow intensively on 1/10th acre of leased land and follow organic, no-till growing practices. This is my second year growing here. I offer fresh and dried flowers through my seasonal CSA, honor stand in town, local orders and sell wholesale dried wreaths and bouquets to local businesses.

In the past I've worked on organic veggie farms across the country as an apprentice (through MOFGA), employee, and crew leader. I ran my own small market garden with mixed veggies and flowers in westnern North Carolina for a season. I've also worked at High Mowing Seeds in VT and at the Johnny's Seeds research farm in central ME.

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

I'm looking to buy a small, affordable piece of land in Maine to relocate my flower farm and build my homestead, ideally near a small, thriving town with a good traditional music scene. I plan to continue developing my dried flower business as a cottage industry that allows me to work from home and fill a niche market in the cut flower scene, including shipping dried product. I would also like to plant cold hardy woody shrubs and perennials to sell fresh to local customers.

I'm also interested in working at a food donation farm or seed company part-time so I can be doing meaningful work in the community while having time to manage my dried flower biz.

I will be looking to re-locate this fall once the growing season in Vermont is over.
