As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues, MOFGA is monitoring the situation and taking this threat seriously. We are taking steps to limit face to face interactions in line with recommendations from the CDC.

With this in mind and after additional considerations we have decided to cancel, postpone, or make accommodations for remote learning for all MOFGA hosted events through October 1, 2020.

Please visit individual event pages for the most up to date information. Learn more about the Common Ground Country Fair status here.

We will follow the guidance and advice of the Maine CDC and will keep this page updated as the situation evolves.

Additionally, the MOFGA offices, fair grounds and orchards are closed to the public (online store is open) and staff are working remotely until further notice. Select staff and volunteers are working on the grounds by prior arrangement only.

We are working to implement plans for conducting annual onsite inspections of certified operations to ensure safety for inspectors, operators and businesses.

We are committed to offering safe and healthy work and educational experiences for everyone in the MOFGA community. We will adjust our practices as this situation unfolds to make sure we are meeting those goals.

Many MOFGA certified organic producers are offering alternative sales options. Click on the link below to read more.
