Portland, Maine - Fresh Local Food Handmade Just for You

Fresh Start Farms

Our Story

Fresh Start Farms, a food hub operated by Cultivating Community, serves as a direct link between our Farmer Training Program and Maine consumers. The food hub works with New American farmers—many of whom are refugees or immigrants from Somalia, Republic of Congo, Afghanistan, and South Sudan—to distribute the produce they grow to numerous outlets in the community, such as schools, pantries, and retail outlets. All profits from our food hub go directly back to the farmers, as Cultivating Community subsidizes food hub operations in conjunction with the Farmer Training Program. Purchasing Fresh Start Farms produce supports New Americans farmers, strengthens the local food system, and provides you with delicious and healthy vegetables all summer long!
