Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Getting cozy with cows at Poland’s Ferland Farm
Portland Press Herald - 1/4/2010.
By Ray Routhier – Poland: When I asked Dennis Ferland if I could milk cows at his dairy farm, I envisioned a quaint stool and wooden stall. The picture also had me sitting on the stool, happily pulling on the underside of a cow as milk squirted into a bucket. Instead, I got plopped into the middle of a milking parlor, a sort of assembly line for ready-to-milk cows. At any given time, 10 cows would be standing against railings, next to an array of gadgets that included hoses, tanks and a four-pronged suction contraption that actually does the milking.
Food Rules: a completely different way to fix the health care crisis
Huffington Post - 1/4/2010.
By Michael Pollan – The idea for this book came from a doctor a couple of them, as a matter of fact. They had read my last book, "In Defense of Food", which ended with a handful of tips for eating well: simple ways to navigate the treacherous landscape of modern food and the often-confusing science of nutrition. "What I would love is a pamphlet I could hand to my patients with some rules for eating wisely," they would say.
You say you want a resolution?
Maine Sunday Telegram - 1/3/2010.
By Tom Atwell – I might be headed toward the fringe – not quite wacko, but a little bit out there. My son-in-law thinks I am born again – as a locavore. I want to move a bit further in that direction in the 2010 garden. Real locavores would scoff at my baby steps in local eating. True, from the first asparagus to the first frost, we eat most of our vegetables out of our own garden and the rest from local farm stands. We buy local cheese, meat and fruits. We have been eating more Maine lobster and shrimp, pushed along by the rock-bottom prices.
Meat company sees growth in Guilford
Bangor Daily News - 1/2/2010.
By Diana Bowley – Guilford: Four generations of the Herring family have survived economic valleys and a competitive market, family members say, by providing their customers with the freshest, hand-cut meat they can, whether it’s the locally raised beef many crave or the Western beef others prefer. While other businesses in the region have closed or reduced their work forces, Herring Bros. Inc., a slaughterhouse, smokehouse, meat market and processing facility located on Route 15, has expanded its building and its employment.
