Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Farm Living (Subsidized by a Job Elsewhere)
The New York Times - 2/7/2009.
EVER thought of chucking it all and moving to the country? According to the Agriculture Department, an increasing number of Americans are doing just that, by embracing a “Green Acres” lifestyle. But few of them are making a living at it: more often than not, their work in the fields is subsidized by an off-the-farm job.
Gardening year will begin when you plant peas
Bangor Daily News - 2/7/2009.
By Reeser Manley – Planting peas is an inaugural event in the gardening year, an early-spring ritual that starts with spreading composted goat manure over the surface of a sunny, well-drained bed, forking it in, then raking the bed surface level.
Consider alternative to interest
Bangor Daily News - 2/7/2009.
By Ali Shareef – The financial crises of the past few months have resulted in some deep soul-searching as we struggle to understand why what seemed to be the bedrock of financial stability came crumbling down. First Wachovia, the nation’s No. 4 bank holding company, then Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, followed by Merrill Lynch.
Farming in Maine a growing business
Portland Press Herald - 2/6/2009.
More people are farming in Maine – often on smaller specialty farms – as the state's agricultural community works to meet the surge in demand for locally grown produce, dairy and meats. The U.S. Department of Agriculture released its latest five-year census this week, showing that the number of farms in Maine increased by 13 percent, to 8,136, from 2002 to 2007, compared with a 4 percent increase nationwide.
