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.

Time to shear the sheep
Kennebec Journal - 4/2/2012.
By Betty Adams – Augusta: The newly sheared sheep objected in the only way they could: a cacophony of "baas" as they gamboled around the small farmyard and felt the chill weather on their pinkish skin. Their thick fleece lay on a screen where Betty Stover picked out the bigger pieces of straw and dirt before packing it into bags labeled with the name of the sheep and the ear tag number.
From farm to fork, Umaine Extension helps
Bangor Daily News - 4/2/2012.

While it is age-old, it has a great new image, renewed public support and bright prospects for the future. Let me re-introduce you to farming. Once thought a dying industry, farming is realizing a renaissance. In the past decade, 1,000 farms have been added in Maine, where more than 1.3 million acres are in agricultural use.
Scientists use Thoreau’s journal notes to track climate change
Mother Jones - 4/1/2012.
By Alison Flood – Fittingly for a man seen as the first environmentalist, Henry David Thoreau, who described his isolated life in 1840s Massachusetts in the classic of American literature Walden, is now helping scientists pin down the impacts of climate change.
Potato blight becomes a threat
Kennebec Journal - 4/1/2012.
By Mechele Cooper – Augusta: Much of the state’s seed potato supply for this year is infected with blight and the state has asked the federal government for an emergency exemption to make an effective but expensive toxic seed treatment available to farmers. “The time is pretty germane to have it now,” said Steve Johnson, a crops specialist with the University of Maine cooperative extension.
