Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
‘Maine rule’ defines tonight’s blue moon
Bangor Daily News - 12/31/2009.
By Nok-Noi Ricker – Bangor: Every once in a blue moon, there is a blue moon on New Year’s Eve. This is the year, and tonight is the night. The next blue moon that falls on New Year’s Eve won’t take place until 2028.
Ammonia-treated burgers, tainted with E. Coli
Grist - 12/31/2009.
By Tom Philpott – Few who saw the documentary Food Inc. will forget the scene involving Beef Products Inc., a South Dakota company that makes a widely used hamburger filler product. No other industrial-meat company allowed director Robert Kenner to enter the shop floor with his cameras. In sharp contrast, a Beef Products executive invited the Food Inc. crew to record his company’s inner workings. The man is clearly proud of his company’s product. “We think we can lessen the incidence of E. Coli 0157:H7,” he says.
The Soup Book
The Ecologist - 12/31/2009.
By Sophie Grigson, Jeanette Orrey, Eric Treuille – I have no hesitation in insisting that of all types of food, soup is the most universally relevant. Soup can be whatever you want it to be. It has the potential to make itself at home on any dining table or lap or rug laid out on the grass, no matter whether as part of a multi- coursed banquet for kings and queens, or the main nourishment for humble cash-strapped commoners.
For ‘Pastor Chuck’, nothing about the apple is forbidden
Bangor Daily News - 12/30/2009.
By Emmet Meara – Cushing: When life gives positive people lemons, they make lemonade. When life gave “Pastor Chuck” too many apples, he made applesauce. Charles Waite Maclin, aka “Pastor Chuck,” simply had too many apples from his orchard. He couldn’t sell them all from his Pleasant Point Road stand or at farmers markets.
