WALDO CO., Maine — The Waldo County Extension Association and Highland Blueberry Farm invite the public to tour the farm, learn about the innovative products the farm produces and learn more about the University of Maine Cooperative Extension in Waldo County.
Theresa and Tom Gaffney have been stewards of Highland Blueberry Farm in Stockton Springs since 1988. They transitioned to organic production in 1999 and have been certified through MOFGA Certification Services since 2002. The farm produces a number of products beyond simply blueberries and introduces the first ever Organic Whole Plant Wild Blueberry Tea in 2006. The farm recently received a Seed Grant from Maine Technology Institute for product development and marketing.
The Waldo County Extension Association will also hold a brief annual meeting to approve the 2018 budget and elect new officers and board members. This is a great opportunity to find out more about Cooperative Extension in Maine and find out how you can help the mission of Cooperative Extension.
The farm tour will begin around 5:30 p.m. on August 30th followed by light snacks and a brief business meeting.
