2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster Unveiled

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show this week. 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.

Readers send recipes for variation on smooth, sweet rhubarb pie
Bangor Daily News - 6/2/2010.

Sometimes they are called rhubarb creme pie, and unlike the Beebopareebop Rhubarb Pies, which Garrison Keillor of “A Prairie Home Companion” says will take the taste of shame and humiliation out of your mouth, this style of rhubarb pie is very smooth and sweet.
Building a market through community
Bangor Daily News - 6/2/2010.
Perry: Every one of us has visited a small, independent restaurant, business or little shop whose atmosphere is so welcoming, so comfortable, that not only do we feel completely at home, we want to return again and again. Visitors who walk through the centuries-old doors of The Red Sleigh on U.S. Route 1 in Perry are lucky enough to get that feeling.
California poised to approve deadly pesticide for strawberry crop
Grist - 6/2/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – The continuing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico helps one see other regulatory controversies in a different light. Take, for example, the battle in California over the use of the pesticide methyl iodide, a chemical so toxic, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, "that even chemists are reluctant to handle it."
