Our tenants’s story has attracted the attention of a local reporter, and the first in (what is hoped to be) a series of reports (including a video) on their progress of building their farm can now be found at the Bangor Daily News web site. It came out in the weekend paper today.
The reporter, Gabor Degre, is a photographer for the paper as well as a reporter and is focused on using video to tell the story. He had been intrigued by the growth of small farms started by young people in this area of Maine, and he found out about our tenants just as he was looking for someone to profile that might help describe this latest “back to the land” movement. As part of his reporting, Gabor has visited the farm multiple times and interview us as well.
