Grow, Raise Your Own Food On A Maine Farm, You Want That Lifestyle?

Hard work, but rewarding and you are the captain of your own destiny. No more driving 90 minutes one way, the same hour and a half back in the dark to the suburbs for you.maine farms photo

Your kids are in bed, sawing logs and waiting on the sandman by the time you drag in, hit your out of state home driveway.

You missed the how "did you day go" supper table conversation exchange.

Sharing the prayers, bedtime stories and tucking them in one by one bedtime ritual long done and over with too. No kiss for you goodnight as you roll in late, get up early and hustle to chase the dollar. Get on and off the pike for the TCB.

That's it. The high cost of living away from the rural country lifestyle is looking more and more appealing. You can not get this sense of space and natural beauty living in a city. But it is the way things roll all the time in the country of Maine.

Something has to change. Is definitely missing from the way you want to live, raise your family that a Maine farm can provide so well.

I've always toyed with the idea of buying some land and living off of it.  I'd need it to be a little further south, as I don't think my food-growing skills would fare too well in the Maine winters.

Interesting and informative post. A unique lifestyle, the country side in the photos looks beautiful and peaceful.

John ... Food is a pretty addictive need three times or more a day! Knowing what you are eating may make it grow your own is the best way to be certain. Hunger makes your skills, the taste improve! Being fed is more than what gets put into your pie hole and chewed up for the big gulp. Mental health, spiritual, physical, all add to the "you are what you eat".

This is right up my alley.  I would love to grow my own food and those chickens are great.  Nothing like farm fresh eggs.

Posted by Erin Bates (CMG Financial and Expansion Marketing Services) over 5 years ago

My husband and I talk about moving to a farm so we can grow our own food. I grew up on a farm in the Midwest. It takes a lot of hard work but it's very beautiful & peaceful.

Hi Andy..... you have "the life".... that's a life as no other area can provide.... it's virgin land that can provide food for those who live there.....

Posted by Barbara Todaro, Marketing Agent for The Todaro Team (RE/MAX Executive Realty ) over 5 years ago

Erin ... Chickens put themselves to bed and watch out for foxes the biggest worry in the hen house.

Tina ... You are not lazy if you grew up on a farm. You are self sufficient and more resourceful than highly specialized in one thing, not so hot in all the rest. Farming rounds you out and makes you enterprising.

Barb ... You know... after your time in Island Falls it is preaching to the choir with you. What's for supper? Better trot down to the root cellar and see.

Hello Andy:

More great pictures and stand up reasons to move to Maine.

I've lived on a farm.  Lots of hard work but the benefits are well worth it.  

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) over 5 years ago

Alan ... Lucky to live in Maine and sure you feel the same about Round Rock Texas. Find your place in the space and be a happy raisin under the son grasshopper right?

James ... Farm life, breaking even is a good year. You are positive, you make it work with what you have and are internally, eternally grateful.

Hi Andrew.  Farming is not easy or glorious.  It is hard work.  Gratifying but not for the weak of back.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) over 5 years ago

CA ... Stick with it.

Posted by Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573, Northern Maine Real Estate-Aroostook County Broker (MOOERS REALTY) over 5 years ago


With rising costs these days, many are reverting to growing their own fruits and vegetables.  Some are even raising chickens in their back yards so they can have fresh eggs.  Even though it may be hard work, it is all well worth it in the long run.


Posted by Brigita McKelvie, Associate Broker, The Broker with horse sense and no horsing around (Cindy Stys Equestrian and Country Properties, Ltd.) over 5 years ago

Brigita ... Starting from scratch what does a person need to survive, food is pretty much up there with air, water, love and family. So grow some, sell the surplus and then become more self sufficient, more empowered with the attah boy, you can do it. You test yourself and prove much with patience, learning a whole new skill set as jack of all trades. Have to be on a Maine farm, any rural property where you only get paid if you work hard, play the weather game right and have two green thumbs. Or a partner that does.

Being able to grow your own food in Maine sounds like good idea.

Good luck and success.

Very cool Andrew, I could see this kind of life. You do an excellent job of describing living off the land in a rural scene.

Andrew, growing your own on a Maine farm would be a wonderful lifestyle.  And you are the one who can find folks just the right spot for this.

Posted by Gabe Sanders, Stuart Florida Real Estate (Real Estate of Florida specializing in Martin County Residential Homes, Condos and Land Sales) over 5 years ago

Lou ... Not just food, but quality food that takes best, is rich in nutrients and added taste because you worked to put it in there. Get back to basics, does not mean going all the way to off grid and that you are a prepper or don't fit in to society. It means trying to reach calm, achieve peace and just enjoy the short ride called life on Earth.

Noah ... It is easy when you grew up that way, I own a 300 acre farm which helps. Not a stretch to relay what would it be like..

Gabe ... I have a landing strip for your Cessna 172.... flaps up and fly right. Will leave the porch light on for you.

S and D ... If you were starving, feeding your family, you would sprout two green thumbs. Hunger makes the taste and gardening skills improve. Happy New Year to you and your family!
