Marble Creek Acres

We raise Kiko goats for breeding and meat, process honey from our hives in the summer, grow ten varieties of apples, grow produce in our 20+ raised garden beds and mini-greenhouse, mostly for household consumption, and operate a small self-serve farm store on the premises. We are looking for Spring through mid-fall help to support the many projects we challenge ourselves with around the homestead during the warmer parts of the year. The type of work you could do to assist us ranges from, morning and evening chores in the barn, animal husbandry, including goats and chickens, maintaining garden beds, tree and limb clean up, which the leaves and needles are fed to our goats, building and mending fences, building decks, beekeeping, general maintenance, and preparing for winter.

We will be adding mushrooms, strawberries, blueberries, and more grapes to our arbor this year. We also have a bed of asparagus, rhubarb, and horseradish growing. And 10 varieties of garlic. Let's not forget about the pumpkins, gourds, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, squash, and we also need help with canning vegetables, jams, and other goodies.

A working family homestead in Northern Maine, and multi-generational home. My wife and I are the kids! We have been married 28 years this coming May and have two grown children, living in other parts of the state, who visit regularly. Mt. Katahdin, and Baxter State Park are just under 45 minutes away. The coast, and Acadia National Park are just a couple hours away. And tons of lighthouses around the state including Quoddy State Park.

Josh and Kathy are the most amazing people I’ve met in my life. I got to learn a lot from Josh on using different tools across farm. I had a chance to do different tasks on everyday and learn so many aspects of living farm life. Goats and chicken are raised on farm they we fun to be around. He taught me how to plant Garlic, Lettuce in garden. I learned to drive tractor and excavator from Josh. Almost everyday we had dinner together with entire family. Josh’s parents are really nice. This was my first Worldpackers and i definitely had awesome experience. I would strongly recommend Josh’s farm.
