Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bass Park to host Maine food show
Bangor Daily News - 1/8/2011.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Bangor: Bass Park officials are hoping to cash in on the national groundswell of consumer preference for local foods when they host a Maine food and beverage show next fall. “There has never been anything like this before,” Bass Park Director Michael Dyer said Friday. He said food shows have been held in southern Maine, but they were not exclusive to Maine-made products.
Lots of work goes into planning for small-farm produce yield
Kennebec Journal - 1/7/2011.
By Denis Thoet – To borrow from the sage Yogi Berra (again), “Farming is 90 percent mental and 50 percent physical.” Luckily, the mental part – crop planning – occurs mostly in cold weather, and the physical labor mostly in warm weather. So it all adds up to 100 percent. Trust me.
Agriculture’s opportunity
Bangor Daily News - 1/7/2011.
Editorial – In the midst of all the bad news about the U.S. economy, there is one bright spot: Agricultural exports continue to be greater than imports. It’s a rare segment of the economy in which the U.S. has a trade surplus. This suggests a potential for Maine to broaden a sector of its export business.
It’s bug vs. bug in hemlock war
Portland Press Herald - 1/7/2011.
AP – Concord, N.H.: For nearly 60 years, scientists have watched helplessly as a war of bug vs. hemlock has played out from Georgia to Maine. Now, they've got a new weapon in their arsenal – another bug – and say the tide is turning, at least in New England.
