Will was born and raised on the coast of Maine, where his mother taught him how to turn the soil and his father taught him to measure twice and cut once. He then moved to New York City where he witnessed mankind at its very grandest and at its most flawed; it was there that he inherited a great enthusiasm for entrepreneurship and sustainability. He has since returned to the Maine countryside to pursue the organic farming lifestyle, a venture he sees as the best possible contribution he can make to American society. Some of his special interests include rock & roll, carpentry, songwriting, his cat, sketching, sudoku, poetry, jazz, astronomy, orchids, crosswords, potato chips, fine art, street art, cooking, walking, guitars, creative writing, football and fútbol, hardware, hiking, language, and his friendships. He would very much like to meet you.
Embarking on this farming venture seems to be the next natural step in my long involvement and work with food, an avocation which has sparked my unquenchable curiosity for nurturing the variables in a growing organism, my dismay for industrialized agriculture and its decimation of culture and tradition, as well as my desire to practice and instill a self-sufficient lifestyle. As a farmer, I am interested in incorporating these passions - food, science, and human integrity among others - into a working livelihood. I am tired of sitting around, reading about possibilities, and hearing bad news on the radio; I want to be part of the source, efficient, educated, productive, and experienced. I want to Implement my education and experience on land of my own, a plot that I will share with vegetation, animals, my partner and the community around me.
