WCEA to Announce Female Farmer of the Year

The Waldo County Extension Association will announce the 2015 Woman Farmer of the Year at its annual meeting 5–6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1, at Windgate Farm, 36 Stevens Road, Unity. The public is invited to attend.

WCEA, with support from Cellardoor Winery in Lincolnville, developed the award to recognize the county’s female agricultural leaders.

In addition, host farmers Penny and Jeff Stevens, who practice no-till farming for corn silage production, will discuss soil health. Will Brinton, associate faculty with UMaine Extension and president of Woods End Laboratories in Mount Vernon, and other Extension researchers, also will participate in the talk. Election of WCEA officers and a request for approval of the 2016 budget will take place.
