So, what would be some indigenous, New England species that, if promoted sufficiently, could help provide a secondary income in the Mid-coast Maine region? I am thinking exotic/rare herb/spices/medicinals that could be turned into tincture or teas and sold as a smaller cottage industry. Or possibly preserved and sold to people who are looking to source quality ingredients?
I have 13 acres near Cherryfield, 11 of which are wooded and two that is south-facing open-space. Looking for side revenue ideas to ward off "the Department of Making You Sad" while I establish a permaculture wonderland up there..
Any expert advice would be most welcome, indeed!
