about the farmer
Sarah Longstreth - Farm Owner & Manager
After nearly 12 years away, Sarah has returned to the area to finally start a farm of her own. Before starting Good Stead Farm, she graduated college with a degree in Anthropology, thereafter quickly shifting direction to take on farming as an Apprentice at a small, organic farm in Down East Maine. She continued on in organic agriculture, working seasons as an Agricultural Educator in Minnesota, in Maine as an Apprentice at a raw dairy farm, a Livestock Manager at another, and so on. As it turned out, a trip back to the Middle East - working and spending time on small family farms in Jordan and Egypt - is what solidified her need for an operation of her own. Though she's started small, she's looking forward to growing the farm a little more with each passing season.
