We all rely on farms, so we all need to stay informed and active on farming. We can lend our voices, our choices, and our votes to grow a social, economic, and political landscape that values farming. Through grassroots organizing and advocacy, policy change, research, and storytelling we are helping create an environment that will support thriving, interconnected Maine farms.
Policies at all levels of government have a profound impact on Maine farmers, and all aspects of local food - from farmland and food production, to processing, distribution, and consumption. We partner with farmers, policymakers and other stakeholders to cultivate a political and economic environment in which Maine farms can thrive. You can be a part of shaping farm-friendly policy in your own community, and on the state and national level.
