Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Oakland business using local apples and maple syrup for hand-crafted alcohol
Bangor Daily News - 3/18/2011.
By Christopher Cousins. Tree Spirits Winery and Distillery in Oakland is producing what its owners say is probably a one-of-a-kind liquor: Knotted Maple. Made from Maine maple syrup, it's as any hard liquor and much smoother than most people expect. Distillery co-owner Steve Buchsbaum likened its taste to a smooth Scotch.
Processed food makes us sick, adds costs to our health care
Kennebec Journal - 3/18/2011.
By Denis Thoet – There is nothing like a few up-to-date facts to jolt us into the reality that processed food is making us sick and costing our health care system a lot of money. A recent study published in The Lancet, a British medical journal, showed that a diet of whole foods could reduce the incidence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by 64 percent.
Farmers expected to testify in favor of local food processing and sales bills
Bangor Daily News - 3/18/2011.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Augusta: Rep. Walter A. Kumiega had been buying raw milk from a local farmer for a while when the farmer told him he was running into some serious problems. “He was being told [by the Maine Department of Agriculture] that he can’t advertise, that he needed a special license,” Kumiega said. The farmer was delivering his raw milk to a local buying club, not stores, and felt the regulations were unfair.
Forget the gloom – new ways of living and organizing our economy are flourishing
Grist - 3/17/2011.
By Tom Philpott – While digging into the industry's routine abuse of farmers and reckless endangering of public health, I was haunted by the thought that these were the folks on whom we're supposed to be counting to "feed the world" going forward, according to the likes of The Economist and certain factions of the Obama administration. Sigh.
