You are concerned about what you eat, where the food came from, how it was grown so Maine farms.
You want one. But not flush with cash. There is a little back to the land in all of us. And the feeling, hunger for it increases as the space to do it evaporates in larger urban settings.
So reason folks buy Maine land to farm, for all the other benefits.
And how you are going to juggle the responsibilities of kids, creating an income trail until the agricultural operation becomes one that is sustainable?
It takes home work on the Maine farm dream that you want to make a reality. And to stay on what you build from the Good Earth.
I grew up on an Aroostook County potato and grain farm.
And the Caribou loam soil that was rich, surrounding the home where I was raised could produce yields of 32,000 pounds of potatoes.
In just that 208' x 208' dimension that is the size of an acre of Maine land. Just across the border in Atlantic Canada the unit for farming is metric, hectares.
Market for the farm food in Maine you grow beyond just your own family table is part of the equation. Micro farming assumes operating lean and mean. Making frugal living a survival game challenge.
