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
Innovative program would establish funding for rural areas
Kennebec Journal - 1/9/2010.
By Susan M. Cover – Augusta: Strong, Rockport and the Unity region will participate in a pilot program encouraging residents to pledge 5 percent of their estates to local community development funds. Maine Rural Partners, the state's federally recognized rural development council, launched the new effort Friday in a State House Cabinet Room ceremony.

And now the Gates Foundation has finally named a new director of agricultural development: long-time biotech exec and investor Sam Dryden.
