Hello. We manage an organic farm, orchard and greenhouse for a not-for-profit children's organization. in Putnam County, NY. We are caretakers for the farm house and barn, have several hives and do maple sugaring as well . We have experience creating and managing a CSA and on site Country Store. Together, we have 35+ years experience. We are fortunate to be a part of these wonderful programs and truly enjoy what we do, however, would like to continue to do the same work on a smaller scale. We also fell in love with Maine very quickly upon our first visit to Maine two years ago...and then more so after visiting the MOFGA Fair last year. There is a sense of sustainable cohesiveness in Maine which we truly appreciate. We are looking for 3-4 acres of land to grow organically. Charley and I are very open to different opportunities, whether that be a caretaker position for someone or a couple who can no longer care for the land, or where we may be able to grow and trade food for housing. In our transition to Maine, it is important for us to become contributing members of a community, where we can continue to live sustainably with our surroundings. So far, we are seeking to move near the Rockland or the Camden area, but we are open to other areas in the next year or two. We come with tractors, farm equipment and tools and two very friendly farm cats. Please feel free to contact our home at 845-279-1090 or e-mail back at taras4ida@comast.net if you or someone you know may be looking for a couple with our experience and enthusiasm for permiculture and sustainable living. ***WE WILL BE STAYING A WEEK IN CAMDEN SEPTEMBER 20-26, INCLUDING THE MOFGA FAIR. LOOK FORWARD TO TALKING WITH YOU OR MEETING YOU UP THERE
