Future of Farming in Maine

What will agriculture look like in Maine by 2025?  Are Maine farmers optimistic about the future? What changes are happening on farms to adjust to changing weather and energy prices? 

University of Maine Cooperative Extension researchers, led by Extension’s John Jemison, asked 199 Maine farmers these questions and many more during 15 focus group sessions held during 2011. The answers are enlightening and indicate what’s currently working well, what needs to change, and what the future looks like for farming in Maine.  See a two-page summary of the findings:
