Any questions can be directed to Karen, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Farms feed community resilience: We know that local farms are central to healthy, vibrant, resilient communities, and are conscious of the ripple effect this crisis is having on our farm and food economy. Many Maine farms offer ways for their communities to access and stock up on safe, nutritious food in low-risk ways — through self-service farm stores, CSA shares, or ordering direct from the farm. If you are able, seek out your local producers to support your health and the health of your community.
UMaine Extension has created a user-friendly map of where you can find farm products right now. Check out the Farm Product & Pick-Up Directory to find local food and support Maine farm businesses.
Let’s take good care of ourselves and each other.
