Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maple marketing
Bangor Daily News - 2/7/2011.
Editorial – Maine’s next agriculture commissioner can work to hold the line on what seems like the inexorable decline of Maine’s small farms. That alone is a full-time job. And these small businesses, with their unique challenges, are worth saving for a host of reasons. But former Republican legislator and current dairy farmer Walter Whitcomb – who awaits likely confirmation as commissioner – also can focus his efforts on expanding niche export sectors.
Whoopie pies not representative of Maine, won’t create jobs
Kennebec Journal - 2/6/2011.
By Joshua Weston – I applaud the efforts of Rep. Paul Davis, R-Sangerville, to support the food industry in Maine, particularly bakeries, with his sponsorship of a bill to declare an official “state dessert.” Unfortunately, I think he may be misguided in his attempt.
LePage’s opposition to chemicals law draws criticism
Bangor Daily News - 2/5/2011.
By Kevin Miller – Augusta: It seemed like an issue upon which everyone could agree: protecting children from harmful chemicals in the products they use every day. Yet less than three years after the “Kid-Safe Products Act” passed the Legislature with overwhelming bipartisan support, the law has re-emerged as a political issue and a potential flash point in the coming debate over Gov. Paul LePage’s regulatory reform agenda.
Raw milk cheesemakers fret over possible new rules
The New York Times - 2/5/2011.
By William Neuman – Federal regulators are considering whether to tighten food safety rules for cheese made with unpasteurized milk – and the possibility has cheesemakers and foodies worried that the result will be cheese that is less tasty and not much safer.
