By Gabor Degre, BDN Staff

As the farmer in residence at MOFGA, Carol Mapes has been given a chance to get a farm of her own off the ground, while being fully supported by Maine’s oldest and largest farming association. Through the residency, Mapes is living on MOFGA’s Unity fairgrounds and has been given access to farm in an expansive field just beyond the barns that house animals during the annual Common Ground Country Fair.
