If you are a Maine resident over the age of 60 and living on a fixed income, you may qualify for a $50 farm share from a local farmer. *Maine residents. 60 years old or older. Maximum of $22,459/per year for a one-person household; or Maximum of $30,451/per year for a two-person household.*
For every dollar you spend with your SNPA/EBT card at a market, you’ll receive an extra “buck” in Maine Harvest Bucks to be spent on fruits and vegetables. Maine Harvest Bucks can be spent that day, or save for later in the month or year when you want to spend them! A list of farmers is posted on the boards. Check it out, choose the one that is convenient for you, and apply directly to the farmer ASAP. Please understand that meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee you a FarmShare. The total number of seniors who qualify for Senior FarmShare each year significantly outnumbers the number of FarmShares available in the program. Seniors will be put on a waiting list if the farm chosen has filled all of their FarmShares. For assistance contact Marcie, Mon.-Wed., or call SMAAA at 396-6500.
