Farm Disaster Relief Fund

The Disaster Relief Fund helps farms hit by fire or natural disaster.

Maine relies on its farms in so many ways. But Maine farms often operate on the financial edge. When disaster strikes, farms often need outside support to weather the storm. Help us grow this fund, and provide support when farms need it most.


MFT’s Farm Disaster Relief Fund provides financial relief to Maine farms that have been damaged by a fire, storm or other natural disaster. Farms must meet certain eligibility requirements. Among other factors, the farm’s income must represent at least 25% of total household income and the damage caused by the fire or natural disaster must exceed $5,000.
