So I may be moving to Maine with my girlfriend this spring, or possibly a little later. My parents are (maybe) moving to the Portland area and if they do, they want to buy ~20 acres and have asked if we would like to move out there and start a farm. Obviously this is a great opportunity! We want to make hugel beds, a food forest, lots of fruit and nut trees, and a host of native plants. I was born & raised in New Hampshire and absolutely love Maine, so this would be awesome! I was wondering if anyone has any tips, advice, people to get in touch with, etc about designing a permaculture farm which we can live off of. Any ideas, plans, groups, or anything would be awesome. My parents want me to send a list of potential things to look for in land as well, and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on that? I already suggested a pond, running water, and some contour, all pretty basic things I feel. Also, what sort of perennials would be good for this area? We want black walnut trees, apple, possibly peaches, and a lot of blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and currants. Any other suggestions? Really, anything you can tell us about this would be greatly appreciated!
