Taking two farms and making it one family.
As some of you know, when Jake moved back to Maine in May of 2009 he wanted to farm the land he grew up on in Bowdoinham. He began to co-manage the herd of cows and flock of sheep with Pete, his father, and part time help from his brother Arek who lives in Rhode Island. What he didn't expect was to meet a lovely lady with a farm of her own. But, indeed that is what happened. Abby bought a farm in Unity in August of 2009 and soon Jake was spending weekends there while they plotted their combined farming futures. Three years later Jake is now splitting his time between two farms: one in Unity and the other in Bowdoinham.
