Greetings from MOFGA, the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association. Our apprentice program is over 30 years old, is very well established, and is considered a model for other programs like it across the country. Typically, students and recent graduates have made up the bulk of the apprentice ranks. With over 100 mentor host farms, the program offers a range of learning opportunities.
In addition, our journeyperson program provides a much needed bridge for those moving from apprenticing on a farm to working land of their own. This 2 year program of support is aimed at beginning farmers who want to make Maine their home, have at least one season of farming experience and are looking to farm for a living. The program offers mentorship, whole farm planning and access to all of MOFGA’s educational programs.
Please see the New Farmer Programs Brochure for more information.
