Growing Organic Food for our Local Friends

Meet the Farmers

Here we are at our wedding:
     Mike the tractor guy, mushroom guru, and woodworker genius.
     Julee the chicken lover, soil builder, and labyrinth maker.

We are excited to work our land to provide you with fresh produce, eggs, pork, poultry, mushrooms, berries, canned goods, and dye plants.

    The farm specializes in 'Growing Organic Food for our Local Friends and Neighbors".  We look forward to growing vegetables, herbs, small fruits, Shiitake mushrooms, dye plants, laying hens, and turkeys.  We feature shares in produce, plants, and poultry.  We treat our farm as a 'generous' homestead with plenty of good, healthy, organic food that we want to grow and have plenty to share with our friends, family and neighbors.  We were MOFGA certified organic in September, 2014 for produce, mushrooms, herbs, and turkey.
    Sweet Relief Farm is a 40-acre lot with mostly woods with wet ravines meandering their way into the Saco River, thus we are continually planning for a viable, sustainable economy for our homestead.  Who knows, the future may hold cranberries, elderberries, or maybe duck production for us.
    In the mean time we have a 22' x 48' greenhouse for organic seedling production, raised bed spring and winter greens, and summer tomatoes as well as a 30'x72' tunnel house for season extension crops.  We plant in it tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant for summer production and spinach and other greens for winter.  Our primary field is approximately 2/3 acre and we have scattered garden beds near the greenhouses and our home, some of which hold our herbs.  We have coops for our laying hens and organic turkeys. 
     Julee worked for Rippling Waters Organic Farm previously, where she incorporated many sustainable agricultural methods with permaculture in mind:  year-round hay mulching, companion planting, herbal medicinal wheel, mandala design, hugelculture beds, and you're sure to see some of this influence at the farm. 
    We manage our work with lots of community volunteers, WWOOFers who volunteer and learn about organic growing and stay for an extended period of time in our camper, and an intern assistant manager.
     Currently we have Produce, Market, Mushroom, and Seedling Shares available for sale, which you can order on-line.  We also are introducing a Winter Share.
     When Mike isn't growing our Shiitake Mushrooms or building for the farm, he is busy creating lovely wood products, ornaments, pendants and keepsake boxes. Some of the wood is sourced from our own land and some is repurposed.  To view and purchase these and our other crafts please visit or Etsy Shop or our Facebook Page.  Or maybe you'll see us one of the local craft fairs!
     Walking our land gives us such a 'sweet relief' from every day stresses, that we want to share with others this uplifting feeling.  Be assured that walks, tours, labyrinth meditations, and workshops will be offered throughout the year. So please come and enjoy!
