Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic milk linked to fewer allergies including eczema and asthma
Eco Child's Play - 9/17/2009.
By Julie Knapp – Organic milk may cost more, but it may also pay off in the end. A recent Dutch study suggests that children are one third less likely to suffer from allergies before age two if they’re raised on organic dairy products. In the study, children and breastfeeding moms ate organic milk, cheese and yogurt. The study author said the connection between choosing organic dairy and less incidence of eczema was clear. The risk for other allergies and asthma also decreased.
A Rich Symphony of Food – Go to Portland and Eat
The New York Times - 9/16/2009.
By Julia Moskin – The overnight temperature is dropping toward frost this week and probably won’t rise above it until May. Most of the cruise ships are gone, and with them the fudge buyers, the lobster seekers and the chowderheads who clog the Old Port neighborhood in the summer. But the quiet and the chill are deceptive. Portland’s many chefs and bakers, its turnip farmers and cookbook sellers and assorted mad food geniuses are gearing up for another lively winter.
Could GMO dandelions replace rubber trees?
Treehugger - 9/15/2009.
By Jaymi Heimbuch – Last year we talked about how scientists are looking for ways to make dandelions replace rubber trees as a source of latex. The up side is that latex from dandelions has fewer impurities than latex gathered from rubber trees, which means the material is better for things like medical gloves and even tires. However, in order to ramp up production of the raw material and make it a cheaper source than rubber trees, scientists have come up with a genetically modified flower that they've engineered to, essentially, bleed profusely.
Prepared-food stands roadblocks at farmers’ market
Portland Press Herald - 9/15/2009.
By Avery Yale Kamila – When life gives you bruised potatoes, make homefries. Or potato salad. This is what Simon Frost of Thirty Acre Farm in Whitefield and Daniel Price of Freedom Farm in Freedom are doing with their unsold and B-grade potatoes. The two farmers sell vegetables, meats and fermented foods each week at the Portland Farmers' Market. A month ago, they launched the city's first local food street vendor venture, aptly named the Farmer's Cart.
