BCDI Information Sharing Potluck

On 11 November, BCDI held a discussion gathering (with great food thanks to the participants!) with some 20+ members of the community and Jamien Richardson who has created a new Topsham-based business – Maine Harvest Company ( www.meharvest.com ) The business “will be a food aggregation and processing facility located in the Brunswick/Topsham, Maine area focusing on lightly processing and freezing produce in an effort to create greater value for producers and increase access to healthy local foods year round for the consumer.” The group learned about MHC’s plans for creating this new business and shared thoughts on how their approaches to farming might fit  with MHC’s business model. All found the information sharing extremely useful, and further discussion gatherings on several topics (yes, with the good food!) are being planned for the winter months.
