April is Member Renewal Month!

Over the past 20 years, we’ve worked with farmers and our members to lay a foundation for the future of farming in Maine-and thanks to you, we’ve made so much progress.  The Dostie Farm is just one example of how, together, we can ensure farms get the support they need as they transition from one generation to the next.  As hundreds of thousands of acres of Maine’s farmland are changing hands, and development pressure looms, we need your support more than ever to ensure Maine’s best farmland stays in farming, and will be available for agriculture forever.

Thank you for being part of this work and renewing your membership today.

Two new videos to celebrate our 20th year!

This year, we are celebrating 20 years of growing the future for farming in Maine! Throughout the year we’ll be releasing a series of six videos that illustrate our history, our work, and where we’re headed. So far, we’ve released two videos: one about our founding, and one about our work to protect farmland.

Our Roots

Twenty years ago a small group of farmers and farm advocates started talking about this idea: that farmland, and farming, matter and should be protected. Soon, that little seed of an idea took root, and MFT began as the first and only land trust in Maine dedicated to protecting farmland and supporting farmers.

Farmland Protection at High View Farm

Protecting Maine’s precious farmland is the only way to ensure that we’ll have the land we need to grow food in the future. Several years ago, MFT worked with Bill and Darcy Winslow at High View Farm in Harrison to protect their farm, making sure that that land will continue to be available for farming for the next generation and beyond. High View is just one of the hundreds of farms MFT has helped to protect since 1999.

 

Stay tuned for more videos coming soon! All of the videos were produced in partnership with the Knack Factory.

 

Be sure to check out our 20th Anniversary website, where you can find events, a timeline of our milestones, and membership profiles.

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