2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine's climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Our health club guarantees fitness, and membership is free
Kennebec Journal - 4/30/2010.
By Denis Theoet – A few readers (very few, probably) might remember that, in my first “Notes” column two years ago, I offered free memberships in the West Gardiner Branch of the Kennebec Valley Health Club. The satellite health club happens to be located at our farm. Perhaps naively, I expected a deluge of responses. Sadly, no one responded. Not one phone call or e-mail. Perhaps readers thought it was too good to be true.
Unlocking genetic diversity with the backyard seed vault
Ethicurean - 4/28/2010.
By Mat Rogers – The 1979 children’s book Ox-Cart Man describes a colonial family who spends all year raising a crop and an ox, building the ox’s cart, and making mittens, brooms, and candles. Then the ox-cart man sets off to market to sell the crop and the mittens, brooms, and candles, then the ox, then the cart. He returns home carrying the supplies from the market the family will need for the next year and everyone starts over again.
Fiddlehead fever
Portland Press Herald - 4/28/2010.
By Meredith Goad – All over southern Maine, long-awaited fiddleheads are starting to turn up on restaurant menus, in local markets and at roadside stands.
What are breeders selecting for?
Agricultural Biodiversity - 4/28/2010.
One of the arguments in the organic-can-feed-the-world oh-no-it-can’t ding dong is about the total yield of organic versus non-organic. Organic yields are generally lower. One reason might be that, with a few exceptions, mainstream commercial and public-good breeders do not regard organic agriculture as a market worth serving.
