Retiring to the Farm

May 8, 2017


A retired professor lives off the grid at a self-sufficient farm and helps preserve wildlife habitat. Why did he choose to live such a remote and back-to-the-land lifestyle, and how does he pull it off? He addresses everything from white-tailed deer habitat to canning and preserving to solar energy.

Guest:  Prof. John Twomey, retired University of Massachusetts professor, living in Montville. He has written a book about  his experience: Retiring To, Not From: Intimate Details of Life on a Remote Farm in Maine.
