Our 157-acre farm is located in the beautiful coastal town of Waldoboro, Maine. 100+ years ago the property was a large homestead. While the fields have grown back into forest, evidence of the old homestead’s stonewalls, foundations, and artisanal well still survives today. After purchasing the land in 2011 we immediately started planning a modern farm using the best of today’s farming practices while retaining and preserving the history of the old homestead.
Our 157-acres is broken down into major management areas:
- The Complex (10 acres) – consisting of the house, barn, ponds, gardens, roads, solar array, and the future livestock winter barn and storage, equipment barn, and greenhouse/high tunnels. This is the core of our farm.
- Livestock Management Area (30 acres) – this is where our animals spend March thru December (they move to the winter barn during our harshest winter months). This area consists of crop fields, silvopasture and full woodlots.
- Forest area (60 acres) – Currently set aside to stay mostly in its natural state while providing us firewood/lumber and entertainment in the form of walking, snowshoeing, skiing, and hunting.
- Wildlife Conservation (52 acres) – consisting mostly of wetlands that provides wildlife and nature a place to do what it does best
