Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Growing hops in Maine? Volunteers hand-pick crop in Aroostook County
Bangor Daily News - 8/31/2013.
By Julia Bayly - The next time you sip a beer from Maine-based Allagash Brewing Company and Gritty McDuff’s, or New Hampshire’s Throwback Brewery, take a moment and toast the helping hands harvesting the hops that made varieties of those brews possible.

Portland Press Herald - 8/31/2013.
By Dave Gram, The Associated Press - Weather conditions have been favorable to apple production this year, with minimal late frosts, a wet early summer and recent dry conditions.
