Even though Heartstone Farm is only ten years old, you could say that for Tara and myself - the farm is our life's work.
We have spent our entire lives on a journey to this place.
This is where we were meant to be.
For me, the seeds were planted when I was in grade school in Kansas. My best friend’s grandparents lived on a farm, and every Sunday I joined David and his parents for a day at their farm. There was no indoor plumbing, but I loved every minute of being there. My career and life took detours, but I knew I always wanted to be a farmer.
Tara’s passion and love for all animals, and her desire for her children to grow up in a place where nature and cows outnumbered cars.
Both of us have long wanted to find a way to break free of relying on factory farms and big ag for our food.
Ten years ago we started to look for a farm in Maine where we could fulfill our dreams and our mission.
