Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
New solutions needed for food and farming
Soil Association UK - 11/12/2009.
Global food shortages will be an inevitable consequence of climate change and resource depletion unless we make fundamental changes to the way we farm, process, distribute and eat our food over the next 20 years. That’s the stark message behind a new report from the Soil Association, Food Futures: Strategies for resilient food and farming.
How the government should support local farms
Newsweek - 11/11/2009.
By Tom Philpott – Five years ago, I gave up a career as a business writer in New York City to take over a small farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina with several friends. From the start, our goal was to help rebuild an ecologically sane local-food economy accessible to everyone in our community, from the second-home owners and vacationers who flock in every summer, to year-round residents with deep historical ties to the area.
Don’t look past Maine’s variety of cranberry
Portland Press Herald - 11/11/2009.
By Brooke Dojny – Scarlet-hued and glossy, cranberries are our most beautiful fruit. Native to the New World, cranberries were harvested by Maine Indian tribes and later by European settlers who established a small commercial cranberry industry in the state in the early 1900s. The industry went into decline, but was reborn around 1989, and now upwards of 40 farms are growing the tart scarlet fruits in bogs, most of which are located in Down East Washington County.
FDA wants to ‘sanitize’ raw oysters
The Washington Post - 11/10/2009.
By Lyndsey Layton – Glistening oysters cradled on beds of ice have provoked a political battle, with fishing industries along the Gulf Coast and their allies in Congress pitted against food safety officials in the Obama administration, who are determined to sanitize raw oysters. The fight is over whether the government should require that Gulf Coast oysters headed for raw bars around the country first be treated to kill vibrio vulnificus, a bacterium naturally found in oysters harvested from warm waters.
