Opening Your Farm to Gleaners

What is Gleaning?

Gleaning is an ancient tradition still practiced in Maine and elsewhere. After farmers or fruit growers have harvested their crop, they allow people into their fields or orchards to gather the fruit which they did not harvest.

If you’re a farmer in Maine and wish to give Volunteer Maine the opportunity to glean your field after you have done the first, or second, picking, please contact Jason Hall, (207) 782-3554. This is a great opportunity to support a Good Shepherd Food Bank partner agency who feeds those in need, right in your community.
We will supply volunteers to glean, trucks to transport, and a receipt to recognize your generous donation. More information at www.VolunteerMaine.org/
