Sun Journal - 6/10/2012.

Exeter farm uses poop to produce energy
Bangor Daily News - 6/8/2012.

Kennebec Journal - 6/8/2012.
Op-Ed by Denis Thoet – We are a relatively new farm, even by the standards of Maine, where new farms seem to crop up every day. Every year is a "building year" and this one is no different.

We turned a former workshop into apprentice housing, built a 26-by-96-foot-high tunnel hoop house and sheep and cow sheds, built an 8-by-30-foot "sun space" off the west side of the house for spring seedlings, put in miles of drip irrigation, and built a 12-by-12-foot apartment off the apprentice house for year-round living.
