Maine Healthy Soils Program

The Maine Healthy Soils Program was created to provide farmers with resources to adapt their farms to a changing climate. Healthy soils are, literally, the foundation of a resilient agricultural system, and the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry is proud to offer new resources to help Maine’s farmers achieve their soil health goals.

Our services range from one-on-one soil health coaching to administration of grant and incentive opportunities. Our approach to developing soil health management systems is holistic, accounting not only for the physical features of your farmland but also for the overall capacity of your farm operation.

Building soil health into your business must work for you, the farmer, to be sustainable. That fact is a foundational pillar of our program’s mission.
