On a hot September day in Bangor, a few dozen investors, educators, business leaders and farmers, hosted by CEI, FocusMaine, and O’Maine Studios, boarded a charter bus for a tour around the state designed to bring attention to Maine’s grain industry. Participants traveled 481 miles over the course of two days to better understand the economic connections and opportunities rural Maine has to offer – from farms to mills, malthouses, breweries, bakeries and food businesses.
