Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
What's the apple of your eye?
Portland Press Herald - 9/9/2009.
By Meredith Goad – Connie Sweetser, zipping around her family's orchard in a little cart, pulls up to a row of young trees that are covered in honeycrisp apples slowly ripening in the early September sun. "As you can see, they are what I call dripping with fruit," she said. All around the orchard, the story is the same: No matter what the variety of apple, the fruit is big and juicy this year. It looks as if Maine apple growers are in for a good season.
Five more animal EEE cases suspected
Bangor Daily News - 9/9/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – State veterinarian Don Hoenig confirmed Tuesday that five additional cases of Eastern equine encephalitis are suspected in Maine – four in horses and one in a llama. Six cases of the deadly disease had been confirmed previously. All of the 11 animals have been euthanized.
Can Maine feed itself?
Bangor Daily News - 9/9/2009.
By Emily Burnham – Besides lighthouses and Stephen King, what do we think of when we think of Maine? Food, right? We think of lobsters, of course, along with seafood in general, blueberries and potatoes, and maybe Moxie and whoopie pies. Maine is a state where the food we grow, harvest and make is completely intertwined with our identity. Which is why Maine Fare, the three-day celebration of all foods Maine, set for Sept. 11-13 in Camden and Rockport, poses an important question this year — the year in which the organic and local foods movement has been in the national spotlight more than ever. The question is: Can Maine feed itself?
Half Of The World's Fish Meals Are Farmed Fish, Fed On Wild Fish
Environmental News Service - 9/8/2009.
Half of all the fish eaten in the world now is raised on fish farms rather than caught in the wild, according to new research by an international team of scientists.
