Meet Your Farmer
March 1, 2012  

Maine Farmland Trust, an organization that works to preserve farmland in Maine for farming use, commissioned a series of eight short profiles of farms in Maine. These vignettes offer a glimpse at the many different types of farms in the state.

From potato harvest in Aroostook County, to the innovations of a seventh-generation farmer Downeast, to the struggles of a dairy farmer in Western Maine; farming in Maine is alive and well.


Meet Your Farmer is a co-production of Pull Start Pictures and The Maine Farmland Trust.


Meet Your Farmer was co-produced by Jason Mann and Cecily Pingree.
