The 2015 Fair Posters are Here!

This year's Fair poster is available for $10 (plus $4 postage). Order online or call the MOFGA office at 207-568-4142.

The 2015 Fair poster portrays a goat chewing on a green manure crop with a native pollinator in the background. The artist, Arika von Edler, has been working on organic farms in Maine for 10 years and is currently in San Francisco working on her master’s degree. Her art highlights land stewardship though cover cropping, rotational grazing of livestock and supporting native pollinators. These topics and more will be featured at this year’s Fair on September 25, 26 and 27.
