With Maine land, for many it is living life one acre at a time.
Because the desire is to live a life with less consumption. Being sensitive to what is healthy mentally, spiritually, physically. To be balanced with a day of day of independent moderation.
But on a Maine farm, working the land is passion that drives the motivation.
To find a few things you do well in the tilling, planting, culitivating, harvest.
To put your heart and soul into those outdoor working the Maine land endeavors that define you.
In the late 1970's, early 1980's when I studied, passed my Maine real estate brokers license exam, Maine land was pretty easy to sort, grade, price.
To price it meant cut over Maine woodland with no or hard legal access could mean $100 per acre for fair market value.
Add a brook, some attractive, generous owner financing to the Maine land and the figure could bump upward. If it was a total swamp with prehistoric animals roaming it and spooky, chain saw that price a notch or two.
