We are a 220 year old family farm switching over from organic soil growing to organic hydroponic greenhouse growing. We have one 3000 square ft greenhouse mostly completed and are finishing construction shortly on another 5000 square ft greenhouse. We are looking for help on all fronts, from landscaping, light construction, painting, planting, harvesting, jarring, etc. We have wild blueberry, blackberry and raspberry picking and eating in season on the property.
Our location is in Southern Maine, 75 miles North of Boston, 25 miles South of Portland and 10 miles from the coast and beaches.
There is a large farmhouse with spare bedrooms and bath and a rustic cottage for privacy also. We do have wi-fi.
We are striving for self-sustainability and are interested in anything that works for the planet and for those involved here.
I have lots more to say and hear from you if you are interested in an opportunity that could turn into a long term benefit for anyone involved.
We are extremely grateful people and intend to give even more than we receive.
Thank you for your consideration.
