We held our January meeting at the Maine Agricultural Trade Show at the Augusta Civic Center on Tuesday, January 13th at 10am. There was a nice turn-out along with some fresh faces. Representatives from the Department of Ag were present to help answer licensing and inspection questions. There was a long discussion about membership benefits and outreach to members and non-members (especially licensed cheese making non-members). We also learned that Farms for Maine’s Future has decided to re-submit legislation allowing the sale of unlicensed dairy products during this legislative session. We decided to discuss this in-depth during our February meeting at Pineland Farms Creamery.
