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
Watchdog Warns Of 'Dirty Dozen' Hormone Disruptors As Scientists, Industry Argue Regulation
Huffington Post - 10/28/2013.
By Lynne Peeples - Bisphenol A has gotten a much higher profile in recent years, as the "BPA-free" label adorns an increasing number of water bottles and baby products. News headlines regularly hint at possible connections between BPA and a lengthening list of health problems. But the ingredient is still common in plastics, food can liners – and in our bodies. The chemical can be found in 93 percent of Americans, according to a guide released Monday by the nonprofit Environmental Working Group and the Keep-A-Breast Foundation.
New research - wild blueberries help heart
Kennebec Journal - 10/27/2013.
AP - A new study says wild blueberries have the potential to improve heart health. In their study, researchers from Germany’s University of Dusseldorf and the United Kingdom’s University of Reading and University of Northumbria concluded that wild blueberries may help blood vessels function better and remain healthier, thus relieving pressure on the heart.
Back to the drawing board: Annie Leonard shows us how to solve our planet’s problems
Grist - 10/27/2013.
By Amelia Urry - From the people who brought you such hits as The Story of Stuff and The Story of Change comes a new video in which well-informed stick figures contemplate some of the troubles facing our planet. This time, Annie Leonard and her merry band of sketchers turn our attention to the ways in which the solutions to our dauntingly huge environmental and economic problems might be approached.
‘Crop robber’ weed takes root in Midwest
Portland Press Herald - 10/27/2013.
AP - Minneapolis: It’s a beast of a weed, creeping north into the Midwest from cotton country. Palmer amaranth can shoot up as high as seven feet, and just one plant can produce up to a million seeds. Herbicide is increasingly futile against it, and the weed’s thick stems and deep roots make it hard work to clear by hand. It can slash yields and profits when it gets out of control.
