Lake Shore Farm has fulfilled its vision of a way to live and work the land, developing an old sugar bush to produce syrup, harvesting wood from the property to build outbuildings, creating ski and bike trails. , revitalizing the old apple orchard and growing vegetables. The fact that it sits on a lake makes the property perfect for summer and winter recreation. Another test of Jesse’s goal of being a Mainer.

He loved teaching them how to drive a tractor, move the earth, pick apples or make maple syrup, so he could share his vast knowledge of all things agriculture and life.
