Chick Farm's display at a farmers' market

Know Your Organic Producers!

At Chick Farm in Wells, Rick and Marilyn Stanley produce vegetables (including asparagus and sweet potatoes), raspberries, broilers and eggs, which they sell through farmers' markets, natural food stores and at restaurants. "Each farm activity - whether it's livestock, gardening or timber harvesting - complements the rest," say the Stanleys. "The result is healthy crops, healthy animals and a farm operation that is gentle on the environment."

Please support MOFGA certified organic farmers and producers!

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Food security in Africa
Common Dreams - 8/6/2009.
By Paula Crossfield – Yesterday Secretary Clinton was in Kenya with a delegation that included Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, as well as Representatives Donald M. Payne (D-NJ) and Nita M. Lowey (D-NY). While the group was there on a broad platform to discuss economic development in Africa, including food security issues, the delegation took the opportunity yesterday afternoon to visit the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) lab, which is best known for unsuccessfully trying to produce a genetically modified, virus-resistant sweet potato under a US-led program.
Opposing camps agree on rewriting toxin law
USA Today - 8/5/2009.
Environmentalists and chemical manufacturers don't often agree. But on Tuesday, environmentalists and industry leaders called on Congress to change the way that the country protects children from toxic chemicals. The law that governs toxins, the Toxic Substances Control Act, is more than 30 years old and "badly broken," says Richard Denison, senior scientist with the Environmental Defense Fund. In three decades, the Environmental Protection Agency has used the law to ban or severely restrict only about half a dozen chemicals, says Ken Cook, president of the Environmental Working Group.
Non-organic organic food
Common Dreams - 8/5/2009.
By Jim Hightower – When it comes to a healthy diet, I am not a purist. Too late for that because I grew up eating such culinary concoctions as toasted sandwiches constructed of Spam, white bread and that oddly orange, oddly spongy cheeselike stuff known as Velveeta.
Study finds pesticide-free diet may be beneficial for children
Organic Consumers - 8/5/2009.
By Francesca Lyman, MSNBC –If you include organic foods in your holiday menu, you'll be in step with the latest food trends, according to industry polls. And you may also be doing your children's health a favor. Parents who feed their children organically grown food can substantially lower the levels of pesticide residues to which their kids are exposed, according to a new study.
