Community Voices: Jenni Tilton-Flood

June 19, 7:00 PM8:00 PM

Free

A conversation about Maine agriculture, food, community and more led by Patrick Whittle.

Jenni Tilton-Flood was one of the first generations in her family not born on a farm. But raised up as the daughter of the local John Deere man and alongside acres in ag production, she has always straddled the often referenced “urban/rural divide.” She left Maine to “feed the world” the but soon returned when she realized that what she really wanted was to feed her corner of that world.

She is a proud farm family member of Flood Brothers Farm, LLC in Clinton, Maine, and a farmer spokesperson for their co-op, Cabot Creamery Cooperative. She, her husband Dana, and their children Lilla (20) and Pres (19) are just one of the six families, spanning three generations and 21 family members who form the core of the family dairy farm.

Jenni – who is also a prolific voice on Twitter – has been called an “outspoken advocate” when it comes to Maine, agriculture, and rural communities. But, at the end of the day, she is a Maine girl, dairy farmer, and work in progress.

Admission is free, but advance tickets are required. Doors open at 6:30.
