The Quimby Family Foundation has been awarding yearly grants since 2005. We proudly partner with non-profits throughout the state of Maine to promote Human Wholeness. To us, Human Wholeness is physical, emotional, social, and spiritual health and we believe in the inherent value of nature to advance all four.

Maine Farmland Trust
For the Farmland Reclamation project. As farming in Maine grows, there is a greater desire and need to
return land that was once farmed back into farmland. In the 1880’s Maine farmed 6.5 million acres of land and now that figure is 700,000 acres! This project focuses on the next logical step in farming in Maine. This project will explore and document “best practices”, grounded in science, which are needed to reclaim farmland in the right way.
