Welcome to Cooperative Extension: New Farmers

University of Maine Cooperative Extension can help you decide if farming in Maine is right for you.

Have you had a life-long dream of being a farmer in Maine and wonder if you and your family can make it work? Maybe you grew up on a farm and now want to run your own. Or are you intrigued with the possibilities of life on a farm and looking for an apprenticeship? UMaine Extension has been helping Maine farmers for over 90 years. We can help you, too!
