MOFGA and Portland Museum of Art Host Showing of “Hanna Ranch”
Thursday, November 13
6:30 to 8 p.m.
Portland Museum of Art
7 Congress Square, Portland


The Portland Museum of Art and MOFGA are collaborating again this fall to bring you the film "Hanna Ranch." This feature documentary is about visionary cattleman Kirk Hanna and his personal struggle to protect a once-prominent way of life in Colorado. Born into life on the family ranch, Hanna became a leader in the environmental ranching movement that set out to protect the West from the relentless encroachment of development and misuse. The film will be followed by a Q & A with Karl Kister, one of the executive producers of the film, and a lively panel discussion.
Film details. MOFGA and PMA members are FREE, regular admission is $8. Members can pre-register on-line and use the discount code "MOFGA" at check-out.


Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Perry dairy farmers’ mission: Keep milk industry in Maine
Bangor Daily News - 9/15/2010.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Perry: Herb McPhail is a dairy farmer near Gleason Cove on Passamaquoddy Bay. He has been a farmer for all of his 52 years and says he knows nothing else. He milks 19 Jersey cows – which he lovingly calls his “Rocky Ledge Girls” – by himself twice a day, rising at 6 a.m. and making his final barn check at midnight.
An exaltation of apples
Zester Daily - 9/15/2010.
By Nancy Harmon Jenkins – Tarte Tatin was invented, so we are told, late in the 19th century by one of the two Tatin sisters, les demoiselles Tatin, who kept a restaurant, the Hotel-Terminus Tatin, in the Loire valley town of Lamotte-Beuvron. Yeah, right, I used to say, and Marco Polo brought back pasta from China. But it turns out the legend is credible: We actually know the names of the sisters.
‘High-fructorse corn syrup’? Never heard of it
Grist - 9/14/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – If you can't beat 'em ... confuse them. That seems to be the new motto of our good friends at the Corn Refiners Association, the lobbying group and manufacturing association that represents makers of high-fructose corn syrup. The AP is reporting that the group has petitioned the FDA for permission to identify high-fructose corn syrup on food packaging as – wait for it – "corn sugar."
Monroe garden thrives using ‘lasagna’ method
Village Soup - 9/13/2010.
By Jean English – Seven years ago, Lynn and Charlie Biebel of Monroe attended a demonstration at the Maine Organic Gardeners and Farmers Association's Common Ground Country Fair about the “lasagna method” of starting a garden. They’ve been cooking up fantastic gardens ever since.
