Know Your Organic Producers!

Joel and Annalisa Wild Miller of Wild Miller Farm in Palermo raise MOFGA-certified organic produce and hay, which they sell through their farm stand/credit-system CSA, wholesale accounts and at the Common Ground Country Fair. They farm with draft horses and say, "We believe that carefully executed and ecologically sound farming is an art, something we constantly strive for. Also that farming with draft animals is a craft, one that we try to improve upon every day." They are also raising their two young children on the farm. For more information, please visit

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Is local food better? Yes, but there’s more
Common Dreams - 4/20/2009.
By Sarah DeWeerdt – In 1993, a Swedish researcher calculated that the ingredients of a typical Swedish breakfast – apple, bread, butter, cheese, coffee, cream, orange juice, sugar – traveled a distance equal to the circumference of the Earth before reaching the Scandinavian table. In 2005, a researcher in Iowa found that the milk, sugar, and strawberries that go into a carton of strawberry yogurt collectively journeyed 2,211 miles (3,558 kilometers) just to get to the processing plant.
Why we forgot how to grow food
Times of London - 4/19/2009.
By John-Paul Flintoff – Not long before Christmas, a man walked into the care home next door to his house and asked the manager if it would be possible for a group of neighbours to grow food in the vast gardens. The manager said he would be delighted. In the days that followed, the man casually asked various neighbours whether they would like to get involved. They all said yes.
Find farms while they last
Maine Sunday Telegram - 4/19/2009.
By Meredith Goad – For 20 years, Steve Berry wandered the back roads of New England, driving from farm to farm selling aerial photos of fields and farmhouses. Now he is on the road again, logging 60,000 miles a year to make sure the memories of those farms don't disappear. Berry, age 67 and retired from his job as a salesman for an aerial photo company, learned a few years ago that a rival company had at least 25 million aerial photos of farms squirreled away. The photos date back to the 1960s and are a visual record of the changing American rural landscape.
The lawn ranger
Maine Sunday Telegram - 4/19/2009.
By Tom Atwell – The four-step fertilizer and pesticide method of treating lawns just isn't for everyone anymore. Lawns have to get greener, on both sides of the fence. Regular readers of this column know that I am not a big fan of lawns. The grass at our house serves mostly as a path to perennial and shrub gardens.
