There’s Something Special About These 17 Maine Farms From The Past

Most people know about our coast land and lighthouses, but those who don’t have Maine roots often forget that we have a rich agricultural heritage. In fact, one of the most overlooked areas of the state is the Norther, comprised of places like Aroostook County where potato farming was the principal means of income for many people. Here are some lasting images of our farming heritage that we think everyone should take a moment to remember.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
