Episode #033 Treesqueak Farm
In episode 33 we visit with Treequeak Farm in rural Carmel. This is a touching story of two people who grew up watching the world around them change and develop, and didn't want to see that happen to their property. This show is unique in that it is the first time we have ever recorded live from an easement closing. It was a beautiful day, we all sat on the back porch sipping rhubarb iced tea and eating lemon bars. If only all legal proceedings could be so pleasant!

Episode #030 Buckle Farm
In Episode 30 we get to meet with one of the most altruistic farmers in Maine, Jim Buckle. His mission is to get farmers around the state paid a fair wage and get food to under served communities. He is using some pretty creative techniques to do this. One that he discusses is aggregating products from farmers in Waldo County, and then bringing them to his existing markets in Boston. He is also trying to find ways to get high quality, farm fresh food onto the tables of those most in need in Boston and Maine. He is a stand out person, with big aspirations. Prepare to be inspired y'all. The post Episode #030 Buckle Farm appeared first on Forever Farms.

Episode #029 Five Fields Farm
In episode 29 we use the story of Tom Gyger to explain why farmland protection is so important, and yet why it is really damn hard to do. Tom has been farming apples his whole life, and now he has saved his land for another generation of farmers. He has watched the land around him change hands a number of times and be divided down and down again to the point that it would be nearly impossible for most farmers to consider moving into the area. That being said, it was no small feat to protect Tom's land. It took years of persistent effort and whole lot of money. Listen to hear the gritty side of farmland protection.
