Jenny is a Midwestern girl who unexpectedly found herself living long-term on the East Coast. Frank was born and raised in Lawrence, Massachusetts (so it is a complete mystery how he ended up living a rural lifestyle). Both Jen and Frank are health care providers by training, but somewhere along the line realized they are happiest living, playing, and working close to nature, and sharing those experiences with others. We both share a love of New England history and traditional skills as well as the day to day rhythms of living on a 1700s era Maine farm. We have been making maple syrup for the last 10 years in the traditional fashion via a wood fired evaporator and classic, 19th century styled sugarhouse. Frank has long appreciated the beauty and uniqueness of wood and during the quiet times makes wooden gifts from wood sourced mostly from the farm. It has been a joy (and at times a struggle) to learn how to build a small farm business from the ground up without the benefit of having generations of family on the farm preceding us.
