2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine's climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
‘Killer spices’ provide eco-friendly pesticides for organic fruits and veggies
EurekAlert! - 8/16/2009.
By Michael Bernstein – Washington: Mention rosemary, thyme, clove, and mint and most people think of a delicious meal. Think bigger … acres bigger. These well-known spices are now becoming organic agriculture's key weapons against insect pests as the industry tries to satisfy demands for fruits and veggies among the growing portion of consumers who want food produced in more natural ways.
Bountiful blue fields: harvest under way in Washington County
Bangor Daily News - 8/15/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – MACHIAS, Maine: The mechanical and hand rakers have been deep into the blueberry barrens this week as the annual wild blueberry harvest gets under way. Despite many weeks of rain, growers are predicting a good season, and if the color of the fields – a haze of bright blue – is any indication, the harvest should be bountiful. David Yarborough, a blueberry specialist at the University of Maine, said Wednesday that this is the first year he can recall that the harvest did not begin on Aug. 1.
Ordeal at the border (blueberry rakers)
Bangor Daily News - 8/15/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – TOWNSHIP 25, Maine: Hundreds of blueberry rakers traveling from Canada into Maine at the Calais border crossing during the past week were stopped, searched and questioned by U.S. Customs officials, something many said hasn’t happened to them in more than 40 years. The rakers on their way to Maine’s blueberry fields were Micmacs, one of the First Nations groups of aboriginal peoples of northeastern Canada. Many said this week they believe they were stopped because they are Micmacs.
Salmon federation manages lands, too
Bangor Daily News - 8/15/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine: It may seem odd at first glance that the Downeast Salmon Federation is in the blueberry business. But the two go hand in hand, director Dwayne Shaw explained this week, when it comes to preserving salmon habitat.
