Farm to Fork Fondo

Farm to Fork Fondo - Maine

August 24 - August 25 2018
Portland, Maine, USA

Taste the bounty of both the land and the sea as you ride through Maine - where forest meets shore in rocky coastlines that echo the rugged determination of its farming community.

Farming in Maine is in transition. The Maine Farmland Trust estimates that 400,000 acres of Maine's best farmland (nearly one third of all Maine farmland in production) will be changing ownership within the next five years, simply due to the age of the farmland owners. Much of that farmland could be lost to farming without active intervention.

Young farmers are diversifying the state's farming production. Along with Maine staple crops like blueberries and potatoes, small farms are increasingly producing organic produce, Maine maple syrup, artisan cheeses and more. 

What's New for 2018?

Yes, the 2017 Farm to Fork Fondo - Maine was awesome! Guess what?? We have even more updates and amenities for 2018, including:
