Modern Dairy and Agricultural Policy

MOFGA Farm Training Project

Wednesday, August 5, 2020
Grace Pond Farm, Thomaston.

In recent decades, many small dairy farms have had to “get big or get out” as the rising cost of operating a small scale, pasture-based dairy has grown beyond economic sustainability. In order to become profitable, many producers have gotten creative - by diversification, value-added production and innovative marketing strategies. Come meet Rhiannon and Gregg of Grace Pond Farm who raise cows,  distribute milk, and grow turkeys. Rhiannon will also discuss agricultural policy and her work with Congresswoman Chellie Pingree. Potluck to follow.
