This MOFGA-certified organic farm has created a vibrant community around its farm store, which sells its own produce and other delicious local offerings from the community. The Pod, a net-zero structure at Frinklepod, is another way that the farm connects with its community through educational classes and events. Stop by for a Frinklepop and to meet the amazing crew.

Keena Tracy of Little Ridge Farm

July 25, 2019

Meet Keena Tracy of MOFGA-certified organic Little Ridge Farm in Lisbon Falls. The farm supplies organic produce to nearly 150 families within a 10-mile radius through its CSA. It also sells to Good Shepherd Food Bank, FLUX Restaurant and Bar and to a few local businesses that make specialty products. Tracy says, "Soil and environmental health are extremely important to me. For personal well-being I want to eat food that is raised organically and work with plants that are safe to handle. I am proud to sell a healthful product. Farming in Maine has been a wonderful experience. The technical support from MOFGA and the community’s desire for quality food has made a challenging career very rewarding. I can’t see myself doing anything else.” Learn more at http://littleridgefarm.com/.

Have you heard about our recent work in Washington D.C.?

June 6, 2019 – The quick update is that we're working hard to get funding for critical organic programs, including helping organic dairy farmers, but we need your support for this vital work. By watchdogging our public policy, MOFGA protects the health and longevity of all farming and food production in Maine. We are incredibly proud of the more than 530 MOFGA certified organic producers, and work to encourage the growth of new farms, maintain the resilience of existing farms, and educate consumers about why it's so important to buy local organic products. Please make a gift to support MOFGA's public policy work.
