“It’s multi-layered, why I support Maine Farmland Trust – starting with a love of Earth, a love of gardening, respect for hard work out-of-doors, and a deep belief that I can change the world for the better starting with building a strong local food system. Maine Farmland Trust is a gift to our state – a force for good, a powerful force behind our thriving farmland. I feel lucky to be a part of it.” Lily Piel || Photographer || Belfast, Maine
“As farms are dwindling across the country and the dairy industry is struggling here in Maine, it feels good to find ways to support our community and local farmers. ?We joined Maine Farmland Trust because we believe the work they do is vital to preserving the environment for us and for future generations.” Jonathan Denton + Jacqui DeFranca || Sweetcream Dairy || Biddeford, Maine
