We’re partnering with local farms and restaurants for these unique events, designed to support our efforts to expand the availability of fresh, local and sustainably-grown food in Maine. Each event will be unique and feature locally-grown foods that are fresh and available at the time.
These events support our Teen Ag Program, educating the next generation of farmers and small farm advocates while filling food pantry shelves. Over the past three years, the Teen Ag Program donated over 12,000 pounds of fresh produce to local food banks!
Tickets for each event will be pre-released to our Host Committee (see below for details). Next, our Wolfe’s Neck Farm members will have the opportunity to purchase tickets. If there are any left, we will then open ticket sales to the general public (tickets sold out very quickly last year).
