Listening Tour!

This June, we’re hitting the road to visit Maine farms! There’s no better way to celebrate our 20th Anniversary than with an epic three-week road trip and listening tour that will bring us straight to the fields and barns of the farmers we serve.

During this anniversary year, our staff and board are working on strategic planning and setting a course for the coming years. The listening tour will help us to dig into what is happening on the ground in Maine’s farming community and inform our work in the future. We want to focus primarily on rural parts of the state, visiting and talking to farmers and friends in their homes, at kitchen tables and in the dooryard.

We invite you to join us! Where should we go? Who should we visit? Want to host a conversation? We want to hear from you! If you’re interested in connecting with us during the tour, please let us know.

Send an email to ellen@mainefarmlandtrust.org or call us at 207-338-6575 if you’d like to be involved.
