Forever Farms is a voluntary, collaborative community engagement program that aims to build momentum for a statewide farmland protection movement by highlighting Maine’s protected farms.
Forever Farms is administered by MFT, which provides resources for land trusts, conservation organizations, and protected farms to use to amplify the stories of farmland protection. The program embraces a philosophy of collaboration and envisions that activities can grow and adapt to benefit the needs and interests of farmers and land trusts. Have an idea or a question? Get in touch!
Thanks to farmers, land trusts, and communities, the number of protected Forever Farms continues to grow!
Help us show the full breadth of Forever Farms in Maine by submitting information about your protected farm or the farms that your organization has helped to protect. Contact Caitlin Hopkins for more information.
