Northern New England Agrarian Commons First Purchase: 104-acre Farm in Wales, Maine

 

Attorneys Beth Boepple and Amy Manzelli have been working with Agrarian Trust to establish an Agrarian Commons in each of the Northern New England states to support land access and tenure for the next generation of farmers. The Wales farm in Maine will be the first actual purchase. The Lewiston-based New Mainers group started a crowdfunding campaign a few months ago, raising $367,000 with the plan to raise the remainder of the asking price by December but have already reached their goal. The Little Jubba Central Maine Agrarian Commons will be purchasing the farm and leasing it to the Somali Bantu Community Association (SBCA). The SBCA represents around 3,000 Bantu refugees from Somalia who will find community, tradition, and the opportunity to farm sustainability in this farmland.
