No matter how many seasons farmers have been with their soil, they develop a strong connection to their land. For each farmer, this relationship is unique, and manifests differently into the food we eat and the communities we live in. In March, MFT hosted an evening of storytelling at Maine Craft Distilling in Portland. Listen to some of the stories told that night below!
