Commissioner's Office Home > Local Ag Task Force
Task Force for Local Ag Development
The Task Force was an offshoot of the Blaine House Conference on Maine's Natural Resource Based Industries held in the fall of 2003. The Conference looked at forestry, fishing and tourism as well as agriculture.
The Conference shaped 75 proposals to strengthen these businesses. The agriculture section of the report from the Conference focused on four areas: water, land, production farming and local agriculture.
The Department has good programs in place for the first three. The Task Force was established to help with recommendations on the fourth—local agriculture. It met during the fall of 2004 and disbanded after releasing its report.
