Are you thinking about whether there are farmers out there that could use some of your available farmland? Or are you curious about what it might be like to farm in Piscataquis County (where the farmland is spectacular and the people are nice)? Then our Maine FarmLink Speed-Linking event is for you! Shake off that cabin fever and come on down for some good, old-fashioned farmer meetin’ and greetin’!
When: Saturday, March 7th at 3:30p.m. (Snow Date: March 14th at 3:30pm)
Registration will start at 3:15 p.m.
Where: Dover-Foxcroft Congregational Church, 824 West Main St., Dover-Foxcroft, ME
What: A chance for farmland seekers and owners to interact in a fun, facilitated way
Why: Because we want help to connect YOU!
Farmland Owners: This is an opportunity for you to promote your farming opportunity (be it a sale, lease or other non-traditional arrangement) and connect with land seekers that are looking for a piece of ground to grow on.
Farmland Seekers: This is a chance for you to meet face-to-face with land owners that are ready to give you a chance to develop your farm dream on their land.
In our experience, most successful land links result from the chance for landowners and seekers to develop rewarding relationships. Maine FarmLink wants to give you all an opportunity to meet one another and begin a dialogue that could lead to a future link!
There will also be a chance to meet and talk with other organizations and service providers that can help support you throughout the linking process.
Here’s a sneak peek at the day’s activities:
- Speed Linking Activity: think “speed dating” applied to land linking (rather than finding a love connection)
- Mingling and Refreshments: a chance for you to strengthen the connections and relationships that you have made during the afternoon, in a relaxed setting, and enjoy some light refreshments.
If you’d like to make a whole day of it, please consider joining us for a Farm and Estate Succession Planning workshop earlier in the day, sponsored by the Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District and UMaine Cooperative Extension, Piscataquis County.
It is sure to be a good old time!
