Wegman’s Farm Days, Helping Farmers
It’s been one year since we introduced Farm Days, our William Wegman edition benefiting the Maine Organic Farmers’ Association (MOFGA). Farm Days is a classic Wegman for many reasons: for one, it plays with an existing image (American Gothic, anyone?) with the artist’s signature dry humor.
Farm Days can also be spotted on the cover of Wegman’s beloved children’s book of the same name, wherein City Boy Chip visits his country cousins, only to be run ragged by the work of running a farm. While farm life may seem idyllic, Farm Days doesn’t shy away from the hard work it takes to feed America.
That’s why Farm Days seemed like the perfect match for MOFGA. MOFGA’s mission is to promote organic agriculture through education, training and advocacy. In 2021, they provided direct technical assistance to more than 100 Maine farms, hosted dozens of educational workshops, and distributed tens of thousands of dollars in grants to farmers. (And that’s just the beginning of the work MOFGA does—find out more about how they support organic farming in Maine.)
"MOFGA is somehow able to do whatever is needed at the moment—from saving a heritage apple tree to figuring out how to keep the milk farmers of Maine afloat—to making farming and a life lived close to the land possible for generations to come."
