Food and Ag Policy

Public Policy

State and federal policy impacts our farmers and our food system, often in profound ways.

We keep our finger on the pulse of policies that will impact Maine farms, and selectively engage each year in a small number of state and federal issues where we have expertise and see an opportunity to contribute. We also conduct research and prepare occasional reports and articles to help educate policymakers about various agricultural issues affecting Maine farms.


If you wish to stay abreast of the policy work we are doing and perhaps play a role contacting elected officials around selected issues, please add yourself to our Action List. We will send you periodic updates and action alerts, and let you know how you can help shape food and ag policy.

Let's grow a bright future for farming in Maine, together.
