Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Syrup makers hope gadget can extend season
Portland Press Herald - 3/7/2011.
Huntington, Vt. – Last year, when the sap stopped running from some of Bruce Curavoo's maple trees, it kept running in others. He got enough to make about 300 more gallons of syrup from his crop. His secret: a tiny adaptor that, when plugged into tap holes, helps reduce the amount of sap flowing back into trees from the vacuum tubing used to carry it to sugarhouses for boiling into maple syrup.

The New York Times - 3/6/2011.
By Isolde Raftery – Corvallis, Ore.: For years, Tyler Jones, a livestock farmer here, avoided telling his grandfather how disillusioned he had become with industrial farming. After all, his grandfather had worked closely with Earl L. Butz, the former federal secretary of agriculture who was known for saying, “Get big or get out.”
No quick meals, but time saved by not having to shop for food
Kennebec Journal - 3/4/2011.
By Denis Thoet – Farming is about food, and food is about eating, so what do farmers eat? Speaking only for myself, and possibly for Michele, we eat year-round mostly things that we grow or get locally. That gets a little tricky this time of year, which is the time of the "starvation moon" according to Native American science.

Environment & Energy Publishing - 3/4/2011.
Gabriel Nelson, E&E reporter.
