Next Steps: Apprentice to Journeyperson

MOFGA Farm Training Project Workshop

September 4, 2019
Wednesday, 5 p.m.
Apple Creek Farm, Bowdoinham

MOFGA estimates that Maine needs about 150 new farmers each year just to maintain the infrastructure required to support our local food system – so every new farm operation in Maine is a reason to celebrate! But getting started in farming is becoming increasingly difficult in many ways. Join Abby and Jake of Apple Creek Farm as they share their insights and enthusiasm about how they market their livestock products year-round and utilize a mix of owned and leased acreage to support their growing farm business. Abby is the Maine Field Agent for Land for Good and will introduce several key agricultural service providers to explain how their programs can help. If you’re considering farming for a living, please come and contribute to this important conversation. Potluck to follow.
