2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine's climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Going green with horse power
Waterville Morning Sentinel - 5/7/2010.
By Jason McKibben – Troy: Farmers Sam Hazlehurst and Rachel Katz take the horsepower of their equipment very seriously. While tractors have engines in the 20 to 500 horsepower range, Hazlehurst and Katz operate Smith Farm in Troy with a total of four. That’s two teams of Percheron draft horses. Martha and Birdie are the white mares, Tonka and Diesel the black geldings.
Keeping the farmer in farmers markets
Grist - 5/7/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – Earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal aired a bit of dirty laundry that was hiding out in local food's hamper – the ongoing fight over who gets to sell in farmers markets. Many markets require that sellers be actual growers, rather than "resellers" of some form or another.
The latest survey: consumers want healthy foods
Food Politics - 5/7/2010.
By Marion Nestle – Ordinarily, I don’t pay much attention to consumer surveys because the results are so dependent on the way the questions are asked and who gets polled. But this one, conducted by StrategicOne and sent to me by Edelman Public Relations, is relatively uncomplicated.
Cancer, chemicals, and corporations
Empty Wheel - 5/7/2010.
By Marcy Wheeler – As you might know, my family is a walking cancer cluster: three out of five of us had some form of cancer. What has frustrated me as I’ve lived through three bouts of cancer in my family was the cancer industry’s focus on “curing cancer,” with very little attention on preventing it. Particularly given how dangerous the “cures” for cancer are, it’s high time we focused more attention on how we avoid it.
