Our mission is to preserve and promote grain traditions, from earth to table.
We provide opportunities to learn and share how best to grow and use grains, using a combination of traditional and innovative, sustainable techniques. The Maine Grain Alliance promotes beneficial uses of grain to establish food independence, good health, and purposeful jobs within economically viable communities.

Adding the additional stores then enabled us to hire our first part-time employee."
