At Zero Waste ME, we think one of best things you can do to support your local economy and to reduce your waste is to support your local farmers.
Buying from local farmers keeps your money in your community, supports local small businesses, helps sustain local agriculture, reduces fuel used in transportation, ensures the best quality produce picked at the height of freshness, and much more!
This Sunday, July 28th 2019, find a farm near you that’s participating in Open Farm Day and go for a neighborly visit. From dairy farms to rabbit warrens to fleece processing to medicinal herbs to orchards, every imaginable sort of Maine farm is opening its doors to visitors just like you. Lots of farms are offering samples, hay rides, and hosting picnics and petting zoos, so it’ll be fun for the whole family!
