Lani Carlson, project coordinator for Maine AgrAbility held a farm safety workshop at the Franklin County 4-H Fair. She worked with young people on farm safety procedures and provided demonstrations using ME AgrAbility Open Farm Day Displaysafety gear.

Open Farm Day is an annual family adventure in which farms throughout Maine open their gates to offer the public an opportunity to learn about the business of agriculture. Maine AgrAbility spent Open Farm Day at Pietree Orchards talking with consumers about the program.
