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.

EPA Proposes Labeling to Control Pesticide Drift, Evaluates Petition
Environmental News Service - 11/4/2009.
Pesticide labeling to reduce off-target spray and dust drift was proposed today by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The new instructions are aimed at improving the clarity and consistency of pesticide labels and help prevent harm from spray drift, the toxic spray or vapor that travels from treated agricultural fields and into neighboring communities. The agency is also requesting comment on a citizens' petition to evaluate children’s exposure to pesticide drift.
A bid to sustain Maine shrimp
Bangor Daily News - 11/3/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Port Clyde: Sizzling shrimp scampi, seafood chowder and the Spanish delicacy gambas al ajillo are just some of the many dishes to make with wild-caught Maine shrimp. Maine shrimp is migrating a little closer to consumers, and its purchase promises a fairer wage to fishermen thanks to subscriptions offered through the Midcoast Fishermen’s Cooperative’s Port Clyde Fresh Catch Community Supported Fisheries.
CDC Interim Guidance for Workers who are Employed at Commercial Swine Farms: Preventing the Spread of Influenza A Viruses, Including the 2009 H1N1 Virus
MOFGA Announcements - 11/3/2009.
In April 2009, an outbreak of 2009 H1N1 influenza virus infections were detected in people in North America and then spread around the world. In October 2009, the first case of 2009 H1N1 influenza virus in a pig in the United States was confirmed. Additionally, pig infections with 2009 H1N1 influenza virus have been found in other countries. This interim guidance is issued with the goal of preventing the spread of this novel virus or any other influenza (flu) virus from people to pigs and from pigs to people. These recommendations are for people who work with pigs in the commercial production (farm) setting. The following interim recommendations are based on what are deemed optimal precautions for protecting workers exposed to pigs with known or suspected flu infection on production premises AND for protecting pigs from people with flu.
Focus new economy on relationships
Kennebec Journal - 11/2/2009.
Letter to the Editor by Amber Lambke – OK folks, here it is: "It's time to bring money back to earth. It's time to invest as if food, farms and fertility mattered." At least that was the take-home message at a recent gathering of farmers, food producers and investors in Farmington with guest moderator, Woody Tasch, also the author of the new book, "Slow Money."
