Join Northern Maine Development Commission staff and representatives from Maine’s USDA Farm Service Agency to improve your business skills as an agricultural producer or would be producer. This free two and one half-hour workshop will explore the importance of developing an effective and useful “Producer Business Plan”. FSA officials will also be on hand to explain federal programs and services designed to help producers in farm ownership. The workshop will be 12:30- 3 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 6. 

This is the second of five different business training workshops for producers and would be producers. Others are scheduled for Fort Fairfield on Jan. 11, Caribou on Feb. 13, and the St. John Valley on March 22.

Taken from a participant after our Session 1 event which took place in Island Falls on Nov. 13, “…we found today’s training to be exactly what we were hoping for and then some…”

Another said, “It was so great to have these training opportunities closest to the people who will benefit from it, thank you.”

We at NMDC and FSA believe our collaborative effort is on track to continue to help ensure small producer business growth and prosperity in The County.
