Farming in Maine is complicated, nuanced, and continually changing.

We need an informed and dedicated community of people who are passionate about Maine farms, speaking up, and contributing to farming’s future.

There is a lot to celebrate about farming in Maine today. But there is still much work to do for farming to realize its full potential, which is why MFT continues to showcase the successes, challenges, and ambitions of Maine’s food landscape using books, films, art exhibits, and conversations. We believe that farming is fundamental to our future – and thus warrants the highest levels of public attention and support.


Like the best farmers, MFT is always experimenting. We tell the evolving story of farming in Maine using varied media forms to connect to a broad audience—from films and photography to unique publications.
