Ledgenear Farm is a hilltop farm with a homestead dating back to the 1850’s. Hardscrabble but beautiful, the farm has provided for multiple generations growing field crops, herding sheep, milking cows, and producing Maple Syrup. James Coe was born on the farm and grew up raising cows and making maple syrup. James met Nella in College – and after a 12 year stint operating a small architecture firm in Portland Oregon, they have moved back home with daughter Isabella and son Jude to pursue a sustainable agrarian future for the land. James and Nella are presently re-furbishing the farm ‘s old sugar house, managing the maple woods, and investing in new maple equipment. They look forward to growing their sugar bush and production capacity while growing regional and artisanal markets and outlets.
