Real Maine / About Us / Blog / Seasons / Fall / Ideas for Exploring Maine Agriculture in Autumn
It’s time to explore Maine agriculture this autumn.
If you’re not sure where to begin, we offer suggestions for the season to celebrate Maine Agriculture in September, October, and November.
  • Shop the season – wherever you find Maine products. Need suggestions for seasonal ingredients? Use our search tool for ideas
  • See the scenery – farms across the state are getting ready for the winter season. You may see people or machinery ‘chasing daylight’ to complete the harvests of fruits and vegetables and food for farm animals, or tending to their cover crops for healthy soil practices. Use our tips for exploring farms in every season.
Taste the Maine flavors, and find local farm products as you meet the farmers and makers.
