Wild Few Start Up

From Nicole Heker

I'm raising money for my portion of the start-up costs for our medicinal herb, Wild Few. The money will go toward soil amendments, tools, seeds, irrigation and processing equipment.

Wild Few is the natural next step of Zoe and I (Nicole) after two years farming at Girard Farm in Maine. After years of traveling the world, exploring the nooks and crannies of far away places and saying "YES" to life, we became grounded by the pandemic. Such is the story of many in this time. For Zo and I, this became a period of gestation- a necessary shift from the movement and wanderlust of our early 20's into a more grounded phase of our lives. We spent the last two years farming in Maine, steeped in the cycles of nature, getting to know the ebbs and flows of the seasons and learning about what it takes to successfully run a farm business from one of the best. We learned about what "community" means and its role in climate resiliency. We learned that plants have a lot to say about connection and how to move forward in these stressful times. As the season came to a close, a door opened, inviting us to become a more stable part of this community- taking our experiences traveling abroad, our love for plant life and farming to make something new. Next spring we have the opportunity to lease land in Arundel, Maine and to breathe more life into last years side project- Wild Few. We will be growing medicinal herbs for our community, filling a hole in the market and supporting those who wish to make herbal medicines at home. Going into our season we already have 5 wholesale accounts and are ready to supply them with quality herbs. We are incredibly grateful for this opportunity, but as it goes, financial barriers make this dream a bit challenging. My goal is raise $10,000 toward my portion of the start up costs for Wild Few Herb Farm and to grow the best quality herbs in the area while prioritizing soil and community health. This is our dream- to connect people with their herbal allies, to rebuild soil health, to create a more resilient community in the face of climate change. Thank you so much to anyone and everyone who joins us on this journey! I am forever grateful.
