Maine Farm Days 2012Maine Farm Days gives the public and farmers the opportunity to visit a working farm, see the operation of new equipment and technology, and provide an atmosphere for everyone to walk through, observe, and educate themselves about the different areas of agriculture.  The two-day event hosts workshops, farming demonstrations, arts and crafts, pie contests and exhibitors!

The event is held at Misty Meadows Farm of Clinton, Maine, which is owned and operated by John and Belinda Stoughton and Thomas and Kimberly Wright.  The farm’s current milking herd is 600 and 475 young stock. The total herd has risen from 200 total in 1996.  The farm is currently averaging 79lbs of milk per cow for a total average of 40,000lbs. shipped per day. All their milk is shipped to Oakhurst Dairy in Portland, Maine.

Join ReVision Energy who will be there to talk about solar energy options for the home and farm!
