Press Herald reports on Carter’s discussion about struggles, resilience of farmers with state committee 

The Portland Press Herald reported on Hannah Carter, dean of University of Maine Cooperative Extension, discussing the struggles and resilience of farmers during the COVID-19 pandemic with the Maine State Legislature’s Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee. The newspaper included her talk in the article “Federal funding not enough to meet farmers’ needs, state official says.” While many farmers faced disruption as a result of the virus, Carter said “there have been silver linings,” the largest being a rise in direct sales to customers. The report also highlighted the Maine Farm and Seafood Products Directory.
