Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Wolfe’s Neck losing its famed beef herd
Portland Press Herald - 7/15/2009.
By John Richardson – Wolfe's Neck Farm in Freeport, which pioneered organic beef farming in Maine, is losing its cattle herd and looking for a new farming operation. The company that is currently raising beef cattle there, Pineland Farms Natural Meats, plans to remove the livestock by September, its president confirmed Tuesday. Erick Jensen said the operation was no longer economical, in part because of the measures that would be needed to keep manure from washing away and contaminating nearby clam flats.
Combined heat & power greenhouse
Treehugger - 7/15/2009.
By John Laumer – How many tomatoes can a power plant grow, if a power plant could grow plants? Great Northern Hydroponics, has installed a GE Energy designed, 12-megawatt commercial power plant at a 55-acre tomato greenhouse complex in Kingsville, Ontario. It's a combined heat and power (CHP) project that runs the greenhouse, sending surplus power to the Ontario grid. Waste heat from the generators keeps the tomatoes warm, and C02, pulled from a treated exhaust gas stream, feeds them.

Maine bounty
Bangor Daily News - 7/15/2009.
By Emily Burnham – Reinventing Broccoli: If you’ve been visiting your local farmers market regularly, you’ve noticed an abundance of broccoli this year. Long the bane of the typical 6-year-old, as well as of former President George H.W. Bush, broccoli gets a bad rap.
