 Maine Senior FarmShare Program Information

The Maine Senior FarmShare Program entitles eligible seniors to receive a FarmShare ($50 worth) of first quality, fresh, local produce from a Maine farm for a core 8-week period during the growing season.  Seniors sign up directly with a participating farmer each year in April.

Different farms participating in the Senior FarmShare program offer different types of fruits and vegetables. You should check with the farmer before signing up to be sure the farm's offerings will meet your needs. The fruits and vegetables will be available at different times during the growing season.

To learn more about this program, please visit this website. If you are uncertain about your eligibility to participate, you should contact the Area Agency on Aging by calling the ELDERS-1 toll-free number at 1-877-353-3771.
