Calling all farmers:

We need your knowledge and ideas to shape the future of agriculture in Maine!

How can state government and other service and education providers better support YOU?

Please help us develop an assessment of farmer needs and priorities to inform program development, state government, and service and education providers supporting farmers and Maine’s agricultural economy.

Attend an upcoming work session to share your thoughts about what you need to strengthen your farm business and grow Maine agriculture.

This effort is being coordinated by AGCOM, CEI, Cooperative Extension, Maine Farmland Trust, Maine Food Strategy, MOFGA, and the Maine Sustainable Agriculture Society
