Please describe your past and/or present farming experience

Owned and operated a certified organic livestock, vegetable, greenhouse, apple orchard, apiary, specialty crops, and dairy goat farm for over 8 years in the White Mountains (Grafton County, NH). We also both hold formal educations in sustainable agriculture and organic farming practices. Sold the farm 2 years ago for the hopes of finding a more suitable plot of land to pursue growing farming endeavours and interests. Currently working on a seed library with a local library in the NEK, and will be offering classes to the public on seed saving, growing, harvesting, and storage techniques as a way to continue my passion for farming and pass the knowledge on to others.
