AUGUSTA- Today was the first day of the 78th Maine Agricultural Trade Show.
The show has at least 110 different exhibits and more than 120 meetings and presentations you can attend.
According to the Maine Department or Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry, Maine has 8,200 farm operations.
The show manager says the show is a great way to network with others and a great opportunity for those who may not be involved in the agricultural industry to learn more.
“Support your local farmers, food producers, and people in your community” Anne Trenholm, the show manager encouraged. “I think its really important for people to know where their food comes from and i think this is a great place to kick the year off and start that journey.”
The show is free and will continue through Thursday at the Augusta Civic Center.
