About Real Maine

Tom Stevenson, Stevenson’s Strawberries

“Farming is a feeling: good feelings and bad feelings. The highs are high and the lows are low. If you can do this job, you can do anything.”

Asli Hassan, Fresh Start Farms

“I grew up in a refugee camp. It was always my mom’s dream to farm. My favorite things to grow are carrots and husk cherries because my kids love to eat them.”

Did you know?

Maine currently is home to about 200 dairy farms. Ninety-nine percent are family owned, managing approximately 700,000 acres of open space, providing 1,300 direct jobs and supporting another 2,700 positions.

Caitlin Frame, The Milk House

“People sometimes ask me for a list of ingredients, but our yogurt really is just milk and culture. When you start with good milk you don’t have to add anything else.”

Anne Devin, Chase Stream Farm and Maine AgrAbility, Monroe, Maine

“We are retired U.S. Marines who have chosen farming as the next way to say “yes” to serving our community.”
