The U.S. Department of Agriculture is providing $3.5 million to five Maine organizations to create new markets for the state’s agricultural and food products. The Gulf of Maine Research Institute in Portland and Maine Organic Milk Company in Whitefield are two of the recipients.

Others receiving grants include Harvesting Good in Yarmouth, Fork Food Lab in Portland and Community Shellfish Company in Bremen, said Democratic Rep. Chellie Pingree.

Pingree said the grants are important in a time when farmers “cope with continued uncertainty brought on by the pandemic and consumers increasingly seek out locally produced foods.”

Dairy farmers can do more together than individually.
