The Town of Dexter is applying for a USDA Value Added Producer Grant that will help with the Dexter Community Farm Project—a project that includes the renovation of the Fossa General Store. The project has made tremendous progress—notable just by driving down Main Street and checking out the store! You can also get more information by visiting the project website or the Dexter Community Farm Blog.

This grant will provide a huge lift with the working capital necessary to get the store open and running… a business plan is being tweaked and will be submitted with the grant application. Another necessary addition to the application is a sheaf of letters of support from local farmers, businesses, organizations and individuals. If you are impressed with the work these folks have done and the idea of this project, send your letter of support to David Pearson, Town of Dexter, 23 Main Street, Dexter ME 04930. If you’d like help forming the letter, contact judy@DexterFarmProject.com. You can also email your letters to her and save a stamp!
