The Next Generation of Farmers Needs Our Support

Lee Auto Mall is partnering with Maine Farmland Trust to showcase the rebirth of farming in Maine, while calling attention to some of the important barriers we still face.

A strong farming infrastructure provides Maine with a secure food source and a vital economic engine. But as farmland has been turned over to development, the high cost of farmland has become a huge barrier for young farmers.

Maine Farmland Trust is an organization committed to helping Maine's next generation of farmers succeed. By making farmland more affordable and providing support to young farmers, Maine Farmland Trust is making a difference.

Learn more about the issues vital to the success of Maine's farming economy: Farmland protection, farmland access and local food access.
