BananaStock

One of Maine’s largest agricultural events will be held this year on Wednesday and Thursday of this week! Maine Farm Days will take place at Misty Meadows Farm on the Hill Road in Clinton. This exciting event features activities for both farmers and non-farmers alike, and takes place between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily. Admission is free and open to the public.

Maine Farms Days has a wide range of agribusiness exhibits, equipment dealers, wagon tours, children’s learning center, craft tent, farmers market and educational speakers and presentations. It is a virtual cornucopia of animals, farm information, interesting people, equipment, food and entertaining displays. A chicken lunch, sponsored by Pine Tree Camp, will be served each day.

“I hope you will join me in attending and celebrating Maine Farm Day. Agriculture is a large part of Maine’s economy and our shared heritage. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how much of our food is produced and where it comes from,” said Governor Paul R. LePage.

“Farms around the state work hard every day to bring food to our tables and ensure the viability of agriculture,” Whitcomb said. “This annual event gives the public a chance to experience how farms operate and for farmers to showcase and share innovation. It all is done in a fun educational atmosphere.”

Misty Meadows Farm is owned and operated by John and Belinda Stoughton of Clinton. The farm currently ships 38,000 pounds of milk daily to Oakhurst Dairy in Portland, with an average of 87 pounds per cow for their 530 cow herd. The Stoughton’s have a total of 850 dairy animals, and manage over 900 acres of cropland to produce feed for their herd.
