We have land. Lots and lots of land. Some with houses, some without. Some needing work, some needing to be knocked down and rebuilt. But it’s THERE and it’s ready for someone to settle it.

We have need for workers. We need skilled people- caregivers, health workers, plumbers, a dentist,  electricians, builders, cooks, entrepreneurs, truck drivers, a pharmacist, farmers, A VETERINARIAN (we have one and he’s great but he wants to RETIRE) creative type people that are looking for a nice town to invest time and energy into!

We need people with a dream – WE NEED YOU!

Danforth Maine is a special place.

The magic, the beauty- is present everywhere in the area, the people, the community.

We live 40 plus miles from anything corporate America- no walmart, no dollar stores, not a mcdonalds or dunkin in sight.

We have some of the cleanest water in the state. And plenty of it.

We have beautiful views, including river frontage right in town. We live 5 miles from glacial lakes, with million dollar views. We have rolling fields and vast forests full of natural beauty. We have old farms, just hanging around waiting for someone to move in and bring them back to their former glory.

We are believers in food sovereignty – lots of locals are always buying from other locals. We have never had a problem selling anything from jams and jellies, to fresh eggs and veggies, to pies and fudge. Others around town sell beef, pork, crafts, canned goods and so much more… but there is always room for variety. There is always room for more.

We have a Farmers Market in the summer. There have also been concerts and events where people set up to sell things- pre COVID we’ve had people come in and teach yoga & painting. We also have a yearly summer festival celebrating our town’s history with a parade, vendors and lots of activities for kids and adults alike.

We have winter stuff too- in 2017 our Christmas light parade was rated as one of the best in Northern Maine by people far and wide. There was also a tree lighting and a town bonfire.

We have a seriously amazing school- I cannot give them enough credit for the work they do in this town teaching our kids and enriching our community. The school offers an extensive Outdoor Education program all across age groups and also offers pre-K for 3 AND 4 year olds. The 3 year old program is two days a week, but compared to other schools nationally, I have to say I’m pretty proud of ours. Here is their website.

We are also a town desperately fighting the decline. The businesses that once lined the streets are no more.

And those of us that love this place don’t want to let it go down like that.

We are sitting on a unique opportunity to revitalize a portion of small town Americana. To bring back the good old days of small businesses focused on Community, Excellence and Posperity for all willing to pitch a hand and have the focus to achieve!

Here is some other information about our lovely little valley.

This is a nice history

Until next time, have a wicked good day.

This is the official website for Gillis Gardens, LLC. Gillis Gardens is a farm, run by myself and my wonderful husband. We believe in biodiversity, organic growing methods and doing things ourselves. I knit, crochet, make jewelry and sew. MrGillis builds, doing everything from our plumbing to our mechanical to our renovations. We are both active members of our little community. We both take care of the plants and animals. He weeds, I harvest. He spreads manure, I plant. We raise multiple breeds of chickens for eggs and meat. We have a herd of Alpacas that we shear every year for their beautiful fiber, which we then have milled into ultra luxurious yarn. We make our own maple syrup, preserves and pickles. We raise bees for honey and herbs for medicine. We also raise pigs for meat and fun. We are the parents of two young children, and consider that our most important job. Follow our adventures here and also on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.
