MOFGA’s Farmer-to-Farmer Conference
Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association
Point Lookout Resort, Northport, ME
November 4, 5, & 6, 2011

Hosted by MOFGA at Point Lookout in Northport, ME, this is MOFGA’s annual conference for farmers. It is a great opportunity to talk about what worked and what didn’t during the growing season while learning from university faculty, fellow farmers, and others. It’s known for its intimacy, in-depth treatment of topics, and amazing discussions.

  • Is based on the idea that farmers learn best from their peers and other practitioners.
  • Features prominent and accessible university faculty,extension educators, and other agricultural professionals.
  • Features a unique 3-hour workshop session format, in which one half is dedicated to talks by both agricultural service professionals and farmers, and the other to a round table discussion intended to solicit and capitalize on the accumulated knowledge of all the farmers in attendance.
  • Serves delicious meals featuring local, organic food.
  • Is a rare and wonderful opportunity to get off the farm and catch up with fellow farmers.
