MAMP, a part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Agricultural Mediation Program, is locally managed by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. The program aims to support and promote the agricultural community in Maine by providing conflict resolution, contract and lease co-drafting, and personal financial coaching services.

MAMP works with ag community members to help them navigate difficult conversations and develop sustainable, self-created solutions. Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process guided by trained neutrals. MAMP staff and mediators work with participants to resolve conflict and concerns around agricultural loans, conservation programs, wetland determinations, pesticides, family farm transition, lease issues, neighbor disputes, worker/employer disagreements, and more. Visit the program website to learn more about agricultural mediation and other MAMP services at UMaine Extension.
