Meeting Notice

Meeting: Feb 15th, 2016 in Farmington

Our meeting on Monday, February 15th was a little different than usual this year.

We’ve been invited to visit John and Penny Duncan at York Hill Farm to tour their facility. Unfortunately they don’t have room at the farm to also host our general meeting so we split the meeting up into a TOUR first followed by a business meeting in a separate location.

The business meeting began around noon in a classroom at the University of Maine Farmington. We covered topics that included ideas for upcoming workshops, the FDA’s review of raw milk, and splitting the cost of sending one Guild representative to the ACS Conference in 2016 into at least three grants to pay the full conference fee to attend for Guild members.

Thanks for the many members who made the trek out west to visit York Hill Farm and attend the business meeting.
