Marble speaks to WFVX about Maine Agricultural Trades Show
Tara Marble, 4-H development professional with University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke to WFVX-TV (Fox 22/ABC 7 in Bangor) about the Maine Agricultural Trades Show being held in person for the first time in two years. Marble said that the three-day expo is also a chance to spread awareness about Maine’s dwindling population of farmers. “The population of Maine’s average farmer is actually getting older, which means there are less people coming into the industry. No one is — sort of — going into the field,” Marble said.
