2016 Workshops and Demonstrations

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A raw deal for milk?
Bangor Daily News - 5/4/2012.
Editorial – Small farmers in Maine are closely watching a legal case headed for Hancock County Superior Court in Ellsworth. The state is suing a Blue Hill farmer to stop him from selling unpasteurized milk. The case could test the legality of dozens of small farming operations in the county and the scope of local marketing of organic food.
Time to stop worrying and learn to love industrial agriculture?
Mother Jones - 5/3/2012.
By Tom Philpott – Like a good buffet, Nature's recent meta-analysis comparing the productivity of industrial and organic agriculture offered something for every taste. For enthusiasts of large-scale, chemical-intensive agriculture, there was this headline finding: Yields on organic farming – the amount of crop produced per acre – are on average 25 percent lower than those of industrial farming.
New breed of Maine farmers say survival depends on optimism, ingenuity
The Forecaster - 5/2/2012.
By David Harry – Freeport: Ralph and Lisa Turner have owned Laughing Stock Farm on Wardtown Road since 1984, and have sold their produce commercially since 1998. Less than half a mile away, husband and wife Steve Burger and Sarah Wiederkehr have managed Winter Hill Farm for less than a year, and have expanded the operation from raising Randall cattle to include vegetables, eggs and pigs.
Cold opening day
Kennebec Journal - 5/2/2012.
Six-month-old Charlotte Smith yawns as her mother Sarah Smith fills a bag of parsnips for a customer at the Grassland Organic Farm booth on the first day of the summer market season at the Farmers Market at Mill Park in Augusta. The temperature was around 40 degrees on the first day of summer hours, which run from 2 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays.
