Mission Statement

Maine Farmland Trust protects farmland, supports farmers, and advances the future of farming.

Description

Structured as a land trust, MFT is the state’s leading force in protecting farmland, often working in partnership with local and regional land trusts. But MFT is equally engaged in keeping farming vital. Through FarmLink, we place next-generation farmers on land. Through our Buy/Protect/Sell program, we help make farmland more affordable for farmers. And through our Farm Viability projects, we help existing farmers prosper, through both direct assistance and innovative community projects. We realize that part of our challenge is to "get the word out" about the great promise of Maine agriculture that can be realized if we are smart in retaining the land base, maintaining our farm infrastructure, and providing opportunities for young farmers. Your membership adds to the growing numbers of people (from across Maine and beyond) who are committed to this cause. It is only through a large, informed, and totally committed group of people supporting MFT’s critical work that farming in Maine will ever realize its full potential.
