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.

Episode #033 Treesqueak Farm

In episode 33 we visit with Treequeak Farm in rural Carmel. This is a touching story of two people who grew up watching the world around them change and develop, and didn’t want to see that happen to their property.

This show is unique in that it is the first time we have ever recorded live from an easement closing. It was a beautiful day, we all sat on the back porch sipping rhubarb iced tea and eating lemon bars. If only all legal proceedings could be so pleasant!

Episode #032 Chewonki Foundation part 2

Episode 32 is the second half of our two part series at the Chewonki Foundation. We talk with two 17 year old students to see how a semester on the farm has shaped their world views, and their relationship to food.

This is our final episode on live radio with 89.9 WERU FM. A huge thank you to everyone at WERU who made this podcast a reality! Forever Farms Radio will still be available on all of our syndicates and here on foreverfarms.org

Episode #031 Chewonki Foundation Part 1

Episode 31 is the first half of our mini series at Chewonki Foundation in Wiscassett. We meet with students and teachers to learn about how experiential education is changing these kids (and teachers lives). In this first half we will hear how being part of the farm has shaped two 17 year old girls’ vision for the food system that they are part of.

Episode #030 Buckle Farm

In Episode 30 we get to meet with one of the most altruistic farmers in Maine, Jim Buckle. His mission is to get farmers around the state paid a fair wage and get food to under served communities. He is using some pretty creative techniques to do this. One that he discusses is aggregating products from farmers in Waldo County, and then bringing them to his existing markets in Boston. He is also trying to find ways to get high quality, farm fresh food onto the tables of those most in need in Boston and Maine.

He is a stand out person, with big aspirations. Prepare to be inspired y’all.

Episode #029 Five Fields Farm

In episode 29 we use the story of Tom Gyger to explain why farmland protection is so important, and yet why it is really damn hard to do. Tom has been farming apples his whole life, and now he has saved his land for another generation of farmers.

He has watched the land around him change hands a number of times and be divided down and down again to the point that it would be nearly impossible for most farmers to consider moving into the area. That being said, it was no small feat to protect Tom’s land. It took years of persistent effort and whole lot of money. Listen to hear the gritty side of farmland protection.

Forever Farms Event at Jordan’s Farm

Join Maine Farmland Trust and Cape Elizabeth Land Trust in our second Forever Farms event of the season at Jordan’s Farm in Cape Elizabeth.

Jason Williams from the Well at Jordan’s Farm will be preparing dishes with food sourced on farm and from surrounding farms ($10-12).

Music will be played by The Gather Rounders, so bring your dancing boots. Save the date and tell your friends!
