We have a small farm with organic vegetable and flower gardens, fruit trees, a pond and woods in Brooksville, Maine on the Blue Hill peninsula.
We offer four rental units. See the Accommodation tab for more information.
For the past six summers, we have had wwoofers help us. W.W.O.O.F stands for Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms. Wwoofers spend 3-5 hours per day five days a week working on our farm, in return for room and board plus us teaching them practical skills of how to grow food organically. For more information on wwoofing, see our tab above on Wwoofing or go to https://wwoofusa.org/
We love growing our own food and working outside in the gardens. It is satisfying to teach young people how to develop healthy soil and grow nutrient dense vegetables without any exploitation of animals.
We are concerned about :
- GMO’s and toxic pesticides and herbicides in our food supply.
- The cruelty involved in animal agriculture (and other forms of animal exploitation) and the devastating impact it is having on animals, people and the planet.
We have come to the conclusion that the best course of action for us is veganism which is good for animals, humans, and the environment. We also believe the best way to avoid the health risks of GMO’s and other toxins in food, is to grow and eat our own organic vegetables.
We have a veganic farm which means we use no animal products like manure, blood meal or bone meal to fertilize our plants. We rely on nutrients from compost, seaweed and various garden “teas” to nourish our soil and produce high quality vegetables and fruit.
