Description of farming experience
I quickly moved into a position of herdsman on a 600 head dairy and lived on site. I ensured the animals were well cared for. I learned everything from starting IVs to tube feeding calves, and more!
I currently live in Baldwin, ME with my partner where we milk two jerseys and sell raw milk locally to the public.

I’d love a lease-to-own opportunity where I can learn from the owner regarding animal care and my partner could learn the machinery side.

I am also a licensed electrician and would be happy to barter electrical work towards owning the farm.
This also allows me to run my outside business making 110 an hour to go towards the farm, but also to have time to work on the farm.
I’m also open to the idea of the original farmer staying on site as long as they live.
