Maine Open Farm Day

Maine Open Farm Day

ORRINGTON - Select farms in Maine opened their gates to the public Sunday as part of Maine Open Farm Day.

Close to one hundred farmers participated in the event to help consumers learn more about the Pine Tree State's food producers.


Supported by the Maine Department of Agriculture, many locations gave the public a chance to experience life on a farm.


The Museum Director of Curran Farm & Museum says it's a rewarding feeling when this day comes every year.


"There's a lot more interest in people producing their own food. People want to know where [their] food is coming from, what's in it, or what's not in it. We're always glad to answer questions for people that [they] may have regarding raising crops - whether is vegetable crops, or even timber," Bruce Bowden, museum director, explains
