MOFGA and Maine Farmland Trust are collaborating again to create a regular Maine Produce Market Report this year, and we need farmers to provide input for each report. We are looking for ~15 farmers who sell a diversity of fruit and/or produce to wholesale as well as direct-to-consumer markets who can commit to filling out a google form (~10 minutes) once every other week through the growing season. Farmers will be paid, and your anonymous responses will be shared with report readers. If you’re interested in this opportunity, please read on and fill out the application. In light of requests to make the report more transparent, we have created this application process to give more farmers the opportunity to participate.
Goals of the Maine Produce Market Report
- Provide data and information for farmers and wholesale buyers to utilize in their business and marketing decisions
- Be an efficient, timely tool for communication between farmers and buyers about supply and demand
- Create a place for farmers and buyers to voice their observations, questions or thoughts on topics relevant to the current market or market conditions
