About Forever Farms

-> Watch Intro Video <-

Forever Farms is a designation of farming properties that have been protected
by Agricultural Conservation Easements.

There are many farms that are protected, but have not yet been designated as Forever Farms. As the program grows we hope that more farms and land trusts will join in the Forever Farms family to create a comprehensive picture of agricultural protection in Maine.

Forever Farms ultimate goal is to celebrate the partnerships between landowners and land trusts that have lead
to the growing success of farmland protection in Maine.
