Opportunities for New Farmers to Participate

  • Are you a Maine farmer?
  • Do you grow one or more acres of mixed produce?
  • Can your farm offer a minimum of 5 different produce items over an 8 week period?

If you are interested in participating in the Maine Senior FarmShare Program, and you answered yes to these three questions, this is your opportunity!

The Maine Senior FarmShare Program is looking for new farms in different areas throughout the state. Find out if your farm is located in one of these areas at the Maine Agricultural Trades Show!

There will be information available in the Cumberland Room or you can call Donna at 207-446-5550.

You can contact Donna Murray, Program Manager at 207-287-7526 or email if you have any questions.
