Hi and WELCOME to Max's Farm - we are a Southern Rhode Island homestead/micro-farm run by two corporate drop-outs-turned-homesteaders. We grow herbs, berries, veggies, eggs and lavender.
Our animals currently include chickens, a cat and two Daschunds - in fact, we named the farm after one of our "babies" - our Daschund, Maxwell (only you fellow dog lovers out there would understand that).
Max is in charge of security here on the farm and happens to maintain his very own blog on this site (It's a Dog's Life) that you've GOT to check it out while you're visiting. Truth be told, Max is the REAL boss around here...
We believe in keeping things small, local, simple and sustainable. We run our homestead without the use of chemicals. We believe in being good stewards of the land and conserving natural resources as much as possible.
Running our homestead in rhythm with the seasons gives us ample time to enjoy our creative pursuits: Mark produces beautiful pieces of woodcraft while Laurie enjoys writing, fiber arts and coaching.
Feel free to follow our journey or learn to start one of your own! We want to be a source of empowerment, inspiration and education to anyone interested in making a living doing what they love in a homesteading environment. We offer classes, coaching and consulting.
Please note - to keep our animals healthy, we are very diligent about bio-security. For this reason and the fact that the farm is also our private home, we strictly limit visits here to a few per year (pre-scheduled appointments or scheduled classes). We cannot accommodate drop-in visitors at this time. We thank you for understanding and our animals thank you!
Hoping to hear from you soon
