Why buy a Fair shirt, tote bag or poster?
The proceeds of the Common Ground Country Store and MOFGA’s year round, online country store go towards helping MOFGA achieve its mission.
The Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA), formed in 1971, 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
