East Sangerville Grange is one of the six subordinate Granges of the Piscataquis Pomona #11 in Piscataquis County, Maine. We are almost as tricky to find as Piscataquis is to pronounce, but once you get here you’ll see that we are part of a vibrant community with a lot more going on than meets the eye!
Our region (also known as “Penquis” and “The Maine Highlands”) is rich with farms of all kinds. They’re raising dairy cattle and grass-fed beef, poultry, grains, organic vegetables, and more. They’re running CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) programs, participating in traditional and new online farm markets, and collaborating to help each other expand their reach through coops and multi-farm stores. ESG is committed to supporting all of these important and exciting efforts by helping the members of our agricultural community connect with the resources they need to grow and flourish. We’re also here to help the non-farming folks in Piscataquis learn how they can take advantage of the wealth of agricultural resources right in their own back yards. In a county as large as ours it can be tough to keep up!
Just as important, East Sangerville Grange wants the rest of Maine and beyond to know how much the agricultural community in Piscataquis County has to offer. It’s a work in progress — but it’s exciting and inspiring and full of opportunity to connect with lots of really interesting and innovative people. We’re eager to share with other Granges and farm-related organizations and also to hear what they are up to — so if you’re up our way, please get in touch. Let’s build and strengthen our network!
