Farmer Christine Pompeo at the Barn Fest farm stand

The Falmouth Land Trust (FLT) and Cultivating Community hosted Barn Fest on September 15, 2022 as a fundraiser for the 100+ year-old barn at Hurricane Valley Farm. FLT has raised about half of the $350,000 needed to restore the barn so that New Mainers can have a dry and safe place for equipment and expanded operations. As part of Cultivating Community’s programming, over 50 families now have garden plots at the farm and market farmers grow African crop varieties on 1-acre plots to sell at the Portland Farmers’ Market. FLT welcomes those interested in helping to restore the barn to visit
