Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Something to squawk about
Portland Press Herald - 10/12/2011.
When Steve Hoad and his daughter Rose began producing as many as 2,000 to 2,500 chickens and turkeys on their Windsor farm, they thought it might be a good investment to build their own slaughtering facility to process their birds for market. But after doing a lot of research and crunching some numbers, the Hoads concluded that the project didn't make sense financially.
Workshop offers different look at obesity
Kennebec Journal - 10/11/2011.

For some time there has been concern about our reliance on a finite supply of phosphorus, and the implications of this for agricultural productivity, food prices and nutrition, particularly in developing countries.
