Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Plotting Michelle Obama’s next food move
Grist - 7/16/2009.
By Tom Laskawy – For anyone still doubting the food-related ambitions of First Lady Michelle Obama, the WaPo’s Jane Black wishes to disabuse you. In an article that charts the internal strategizing over how best to leverage the success of the White House Kitchen Garden, Black indicates that the First Lady and “the White House [are] grappling with the very issues that have challenged the so-called good food movement for decades: How do you simplify and sell a new way of eating?”
Big Ag not content with concessions in House climate bill
Grist - 7/16/2009.
By Kate Sheppard – The American Farm Bureau Federation, not content with the major concessions for agriculture that its congressional allies secured during the House climate debate, is now lobbying the Senate for a better deal. Appearing at a hearing of the Environment and Public Works Committee on Tuesday, Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman not only pushed for provisions that environmentalists believe would limit the efficacy of a climate bill, he also repeated climate skeptic talking points, questioning whether climate change is even happening, according to written testimony submitted to the committee.
Blueberry industry refocuses marketing
Bangor Daily News - 7/16/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – JONESBORO, Maine — Maine's wild blueberry farmers can grow berries: 90 million pounds last year, a bumper crop. But while the market was flooded with native and imported cultivated berries and the prices paid for all berries continued to drop, major marketing campaigns for wild blueberries focused on their health properties and targeted the ingredient industry.
One person’s ‘fun’ can destroy fruits of labor
Kennebec Journal - 7/15/2009.
Editorial – Spencer Aitel and Paige Tyson operate an organic dairy in China named Two Loons Farm. They've got 75 milking cows. If you've eaten Stonyfield Farms organic yogurt, you've probably consumed a product made from Two Loons Farm milk.
