Meet Anna Mueller – MOFGA Educational Events Coordinator

December 1, 2016

Anna Mueller, MOFGA's educational events coordinator, was born in Germany and moved to the United States in 1999. Her family moved from Florida to Massachusetts and then to Texas before Mueller returned to New England to attend Unity College. While at Unity she worked at MOFGA as a work-study student and later filled in as our administrative assistant before becoming events coordinator.


MOFGA Volunteer Earl Littlefield

December 2016

Earl Littlefield and his wife, Donna, have lived in Thorndike, across from MOFGA's red barn on Crosby Brook Road, for 38 years, and they've seen a lot of changes in that time. Donna's grandparents used to own and grow potatoes on the farm where MOFGA now sits. Today Earl and Donna own an acre around their home – and that's how their involvement with MOFGA began.
