Resources & Support

University of Maine Cooperative Extension offers resources and support to new farmers through publications, videos, Maine Farmer Resource Network, and additional resources.

UMaine Extension is making a difference!

Eugene and Mary Margaret Ripley, Ripley Farm, Dover-Foxcroft“As organic farmers, we value University of Maine Cooperative Extension as our top agricultural resource here in Piscataquis County. Being new farmers, we especially benefit from the Piscataquis County Extension office’s focus on facilitating networking and skill sharing between farmers, gardeners, and community members alike through programs such as the Maine Highlands Farmers, the You Can series, and more.

Extension’s soil testing and pest and disease identification services are invaluable to our ability to grow healthy crops for the dozens of local families that rely on us for their seasonal veggies. Piscataquis County Cooperative Extension is truly an extension of our farm!”
