Maine Public interviews Mallory about the grain economy in Maine

Ellen Mallory, University of Maine Cooperative Extension professor and a professor in the School of Food and Agriculture, was interviewed by Maine Public for a story about Maine’s growing grain economy. “People really like the idea of eating local. If you develop a local grain economy, with relationships between farmers and processors, then you can stabilize prices and provide some predictability for farmers in terms of a price and in terms of volume [that they can sell],” said Mallory, who is on the board of Maine Grain Alliance and works with farmers to help them meet the new economic opportunities with grain production.
