Mary Quinn Doyle and the folks at Unique Maine Farms have been cooking up a treat for us over the past two-and-a-half years. In an effort to increase knowledge and enthusiasm about farms in Maine, they have profiled 178 farms across the state. The project, which is makes its findings available both on its website and in a hardcover book, showcases the diversity of farms in Maine. The profiles include organic and conventional farms; dairy, aquaculture, tree, vegetable, herb, fiber, flower, and meat farms are all there. The book also incorporates harvesting and gathering by Native Americans, gardens operated by refugees, immigrants, inmates, and the homeless.

All in all, it looks like a very exciting project.

You can learn more about Unique Maine Farms and read their farm profiles on their WEBSITE.

Also check out the Unique Maine Farms BOOK. The proceeds go to furnishing Maine libraries with copies of the book.
