The Maine Sustainable Agriculture Society promotes and develops sustainable agriculture practices and systems that benefit Maine farms and the ecosystems and communities in which they operate. Click here to learn more about our approach. Every year we host thoughtful and engaging Trades Show presentations and farm-based Twilight Tours and networking events. We develop and launch leading-edge programs that address emerging needs within Maine agriculture, such as Farm Fresh Connection and More Maine Meat. We are actively engaged with state and regional agriculture groups, such as the Agricultural Council of Maine (AgCOM), the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), Maine Farm Bureau, University of Maine Cooperative Extension, Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group and various other local groups that work to benefit Maine farmers. Throughout our 14+ years of activity, we have achieved many successes. But we cannot do this alone. We need your support to continue our important work for the benefit of all Mainers.
