Farm Conversations

Weekly Maine Farm Zoom sessions at 7 pm for farmers and others to share what is happening on their farm, what is working well, and what isn’t working well. It can be a chance to chat with others throughout the state, to stay connected in these difficult times. 

In the past we had FSA, Maine Dept of Labor, MDACF on Seedling Sales, Congresswoman Pingree’s office on the call to answer questions, alternative marketing  and e-commerce options.

Just tune in either through your computer or by phone.  No registration necessary. If you have a spotty connection by computer, try calling one of the phone numbers for better audio reception. 

If you have suggestions for topics, preference for different days of the week or time of the day for these sessions send me an email: donna.coffin@maine.edu
