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!
