Area Profile

“The Crown of Maine.” “North of Ordinary.” Phrases used by local area organizations and businesses to describe the region they call home.

“Quality from the Ground Up,” is the phrase often used to describe our main agricultural crop – potatoes. We think it applies to more than just round whites and russets.

Business, and life, in northern Maine can give you a new perspective. Imagine a traffic jam on your way to work that is more likely to be caused by a moose grazing by the side of the road in spring than a four-car pile-up.

Fresh air. Wide open spaces. Affordable housing. Low crime. Quality education. These are all part of our home and we invite you to take a closer look.
