Farming is Hip in Maine + New England

I love this! Turns out farming is hip in New England. Across the region. Young adults are choosing crops over cubicles, new farms are popping up and the local food movement is spreading. The region’s small size makes it easy for farmers and consumers to connect at farm markets and stands.

I know there is a very conscious effort in Maine to connect farmers and consumers. The numbers back it up the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s recent census found 95,000 fewer farms nationally in 2012 than in 2007..BUT New England saw a 5 percent increase to nearly 35,000 farms, many less than 50 acres. Fabulous!
