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.

Fish experiment pits human health against profits
Portland Press Herald - 10/6/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – A small (and some would say naïve) part of me remains hopeful that the Food and Drug Administration will bar AquaBounty’s genetically engineered Atlantic salmon from entering our food supply and environment, but my rational side is steeling myself against a seemingly inevitable approval.
