Maine Farmland Trust Launches "Forever Farms" Program!

July 31, 2011


Alex Fouliard


Forever Farms" is a way to celebrate the growing success of farmland protection efforts in Maine. Over the next several months, signs that read "Forever Farm" will be installed on farmland in Maine that has been preserved through agricultural easements. Agricultural easements ensure that the land will forever be available for farming. Through this signage, a new website, and events, MFT and its partner organizations will raise public awareness about what we've already achieved in Maine, while generating excitement for future farmland preservation. We hope to see you at an upcoming Forever Farm event in your area!

Thursday, August 18th Erickson Farm in Rockport

Tuesday, August 23rd Horsepower Farm in Penobscot

Tuesday, August 30th Kelley Farm in Bowdoinham

Thursday, Sept. 8th Broadturn Farm in Scarborough

Tuesday, Sept. 13th Katherine Breton Memorial Preserve in Lisbon

All events will be held from 5 to 8PM

Each event will include Tide Mill's organic grilled chicken, prepared local produce, wine from Bartlett Maine Estate Winery of Gouldsboro, beer from Andrew's Brewery of Lincolnville, and ice cream treats provided by Dolcelino's of Camden. Farm tours will be available in addition to live music.
