Know Your Organic Producers!

Joel and Annalisa Wild Miller of Wild Miller Farm in Palermo raise MOFGA-certified organic produce and hay, which they sell through their farm stand/credit-system CSA, wholesale accounts and at the Common Ground Country Fair. They farm with draft horses and say, "We believe that carefully executed and ecologically sound farming is an art, something we constantly strive for. Also that farming with draft animals is a craft, one that we try to improve upon every day." They are also raising their two young children on the farm. For more information, please visit

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Real cost of low-price meat can’t be found in the food bill
Maine Sunday Telegram - 10/3/2010.
By Monica Eng (Chicago Tribune) – If you adjust for inflation and income, Americans have never spent less on food than they have in recent years. And yet many feel we've also never paid such a high price when it comes to factors other than dollars. U.S. Department of Agriculture figures show the average American spent just 9.5 percent of his or her disposable income on food last year, a lower percentage than any country in the world.
Shred your leaves for the garden or the lawn
Maine Sunday Telegram - 10/3/2010.
By Tom Atwell – What are you going to do with all of those leaves? Before September was out of its teens, I was already raking up acorns, being afraid that people would slip on them and file a lawsuit. It makes me think the trees are going to produce a lot of leaves this year.
Someone’s in the kitchen with Marjorie
Maine Sunday Telegram - 10/3/2010.
By Meredith Goad – For 25 years, Marjorie Standish wrote a food column for this newspaper called "Cooking Down East." Three hundred and fifty of her classic Maine recipes were compiled in book form in 1969, and "Cooking Down East" soon became the state's best-selling cookbook. Over the years, Standish's fans – and they are legion – have bought more than 100,000 copies.
Common Ground Fair this year ‘absolutely intense and enjoyable’
Kennebec Journal - 10/1/2010.
By Dennis Thoet – A farmer goes to the Common Ground Fair… Not that unusual, but our Sunday at the Fair was absolutely intense and enjoyable. First event: The MOFGA 5K Road Race, which starts at 8 a.m. Sunday.
