Southern Maine Farmer Listservs
The purpose of these lists is to help growers help one another to be successful in their enterprises. These lists are intended to connect growers to buy and sell items from each other, to connect for buying in bulk, and to find equipment, supplies, and land that can be shared and loaned. Sharing of experiences with products, production and management knowledge, and navigating topics such as insurance, labor, and financing are encouraged. Extension Educators and other service providers are also encouraged to join and contribute to the discussion.
