When Ann moved her farm to central Maine in 2008, her interest in vibrant agricultural communities led her to attend the Kneading Conference. MGA’s commitment to viable farms, human health and soil health through grains inspired her to become a board member that year. Ann has watched MGA‘s programs and partnerships lead to more acres in sustainable grain production and grain-based businesses thriving while sourcing Maine-grown grains.  As a board member; owner/operator of One Drop Farm/Seedlings by Annie; and  chair of the Somerset County Soil and Water Conservation District, Ann is committed to keeping her community a place that values and seeks out its agricultural assets and local businesses featuring them.
