Supporting Fresh Start Farms makes an impact on multiple levels:
You are receiving fresh produce to nourish yourselves and your families.
Your farmers are accessing income that allows them to build and expand small-scale farm-based businesses. This is essential for the immigrants and refugees who participate in our New American Sustainable Agriculture Program (NASAP) to become more self-sufficient.
Our community benefits from local purchases by keeping Maine dollars circulating in your region. Your investment also contributes to the development of a vibrant local food culture!
Our planet will continue to be cultivated using sustainable agriculture practices that protect and preserve its health and vitality.
Keep checking back for updates on what's growing and who's growing it!
And also look out for an invitation to our Harvest Dinner on the Packard-Littlefield Farm in Lisbon! This is where most of the farmers grow their produce, and come mid-October, the farmers will put on their chef's hats and cook a delicious feast!
