Quick farming question

Hi everyone,

We're still trying to nail down our land use plan over here in Maine, and I 
have a quick question for you.

Does your community (or any that you know of) have a successful community-owned 
farm, that provides food only to cohousing members? (Where the community buys 
and owns the farm infrastructure and pays a farmer to do the work, and then 
only the community members get the food).  I'd love to hear any comments on 
successful projects that seem similar (maybe where the farm is community-owned 
but the food is also sold elsewhere) -- or on attempts at this that have 
failed, or why this may not work or may not be a good idea.

A few details: we will have 36 homes clustered on about 5-6 acres, with 42 
acres of land in total.

Thanks, as always, for taking some time to respond!


Where we're still looking for new neighbors!
