Sustainable Farm Go to to 4 Season Farm, Maine
On the finish of August, I visited the farm I apprenticed at and that continues to encourage me. 4 Season Farm in Brooksville, Maine is owned and operated by Barbara Damrosch and Eliot Coleman. Throughout my go to I caught up with the farmers, present apprentices, and the most recent employee: two hogs and tons of of chickens.
The chickens and hogs are serving to put together the pasture as their manure serves as a nitrogen wealthy fertilizer.
The farm was wanting higher than ever and Barbara and Eliot are persevering with to dream huge and experiment freely. Their farm is a laboratory for brand spanking new rising methods, progressive instruments and buildings.
They’re dedicated to educating extra individuals their expertise, and proceed to make use of apprentices and interns all through the seasons. When requested for recommendation to starting farmers, Barbara natrually replied, “Make compost. Feed the soil.”
