This farm is nestled on 11 acres of mainly forested land in rural, artistic Midcoast Maine (a 20 minute scenic drive from the coast). We focus on chemical-free bees, poultry, hops, herbs, kiwis and perennial pollinator gardens. Helpers can expect to help tend to the birds, bees, gardens, guest rooms and landscape (including stonework). Current accommodations include a room in the farmhouse, a tipi in the meadow located at the back of the property, tent camping, rustic barn space. A separate barn studio living space is being constructed this year with entirely re-purposed materials. I currently host guests on AirBnb and offer Reiki and Herbal Medicine to guests at home and at the Farmer's Market. My approach to farming is that it is a sacred practice. I have two daughters ages 3 and 5. My diet is gluten free, but we can accommodate the dietary needs of any guest. I hope to pair helpers with roughly 20 hours of work a week that motivates and piques their own interests in sustainable organic farming and lifestyle. We are located across the street from the local swimming hole, so why not jump in on a hot day after working on the farm? Maine offers so much natural beauty to explore!
