Chris Cavendish grew up in Louisville, Kentucky playing in the family gardens and dreaming of one day being an Architect. After graduation from architecture school he moved to Maine to pursue his interests in the New England style of architecture. After a few years working for a firm and growing restless of the city life, he took an extend leave of absence from his job to pursue other life pursuits.
After a year of searching for the “next step” he had the good fortune of being accepted to MOFGAs’ “Farmer-in-Residence Program in Unity and Fishbowl Farm was born. That was 2003, and from that 3/4 acre plot Chris has evolved the farm into an eight acre “monster kitchen garden” serving the Portland and Brunswick areas with a diverse selection of sustainably grown produce. He moved the farm to Bowdoinham in 2005, where he currently farms with his wife and many of his friends.
