Maine Senior FarmShares Still Available!

Real Maine / About Us / Blog / Seasons / Fall / Maine Senior FarmShares Still Available!

Sign up by September 30th

As summer gives way to fall, farmers all around Maine are bringing in the harvest. For seniors craving the best of the season, it’s not too late to register for the Maine Senior FarmShare Program. There are two types of shares available, “Senior Select,” and “Farmer Select.” Participating seniors receive a share (worth $50) of fresh, local produce at no cost from an authorized farm during the growing season. Buy storage crops, fill your freezer, or can the bounty! Maine seniors 60 years or older who meet the eligibility guidelines may participate (learn more here). The deadline to register for 2021 is September 30th!

Senior Select

Choose your favorite produce.

Here is a selection of participating farms around the state that still have shares available. (Some farms have no shares remaining.) If none are near you but you would still like to participate, please email SeniorFarmShare.AGR@maine.gov or call (207) 446-5550.

Farmer Select

Enjoy the convenience of delivery.

Do you live in a senior living facility in Central Maine, or somewhere in or near Lewiston/Auburn, Waterville, and Portland? Do you work with senior housing developments in those areas? Farmer Kev’s Organics is looking for additional drop-off points of farmer-selected Senior FarmShare. They will bring four deliveries of fresh produce to income-eligible seniors (60+) at facilities that sign up 20 or more participants. Deadline for registering is September 30th, and produce will be delivered in October and early November. Please email SeniorFarmShare.AGR@maine.gov or call (207) 446-5550 if you are interested.
