Why buy a Fair shirt, tote bag, or poster?

The proceeds from the online Country Store go towards helping the  Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) achieve its mission.

MOFGA follows strict sustainability guidelines for all products sold in the Online Country Store. Take a look at the graphic below to learn about how our Common Ground Country Fair T-shirts are made. 

MOFGA was formed in 1971 and is the oldest and largest state organic organization in the country. MOFGA is a broad-based community that educates about and advocates for organic agriculture, illuminating its interdependence with a healthy environment, local food production, and thriving communities.

We accomplish that education and advocacy through several programs:

Education – including farm apprenticeships, journeyperson training, farm and garden tours, low-impact forestry events, scholarships and more

Agricultural services – with specialists in organic crops, livestock, and marketing

The Common Ground Country Fair – our annual celebration of rural living, held the third weekend after Labor Day

Organic certification – MOFGA Certification Services LLC, the USDA-accredited organic certifier in Maine

Policy – including our Public Policy Committee and our MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee

Publications – including our quarterly newspaper, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener; our weekly emailed Bulletin Board; fact sheets; pest reports; and more
