Past and present farming experience:

I’m John (they/ he) and my partners name is Lucie (she/ they). Lucie apprenticed on an organic farm last summer through MOFGA working primarily with growing vegetables, but also worked with poultry, cattle and hogs to a varying degree. I worked on the same farm, but not as an apprentice. We will both be apprenticing again this summer through MOFGA and will be working more with livestock this year. In addition to all of this, Lucie studied Earth and Oceanographic Science at Bowdoin and I studied math at CU Boulder and now at UMaine as a graduate student.

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

We are searching for an opportunity to get started farming on our own next season. Ideally we would love to incubate with someone who has enough space for us to work with both vegetables and livestock and go to market as well as have a CSA. Ideally, this would be in more coastal Maine, where we are closer to family and friends, but we would love to hear about any opportunities that come are way.
