Maine officials say more than 400,000 acres of Maine farmland will transition ownership over the next 10 years
The coming transfer of ownership is the focus of an upcoming conference. Nonprofits Maine Farmland Trust and Land For Good are inviting farmers, landowners and the public to their Farmland Access Conference to talk about the future of farmland in Maine.
The event will include workshops about subjects such as how to steward the future of a farm when a farmer is getting ready to retire.
The conference is scheduled for Dec. 4 at the Augusta Civic Center. It’s sponsored by The Maine Department of Agriculture Conservation and Forestry.
