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 available online through our MOFGA Store.

Fungus poses threat to Maine’s low-bush blueberry crop
Portland Press Herald - 8/5/2009.
By Meredith Goad – Due to the wet summer, the wild blueberry harvest is running about a week late this year. But growers are still hoping for a bumper crop, if they can keep a new threat to their fields under control. Valdensinia leaf spot is a very small fungus that could cause very big problems for Maine's low-bush blueberry industry. "We've made a major effort to do an educational push on this, because this is something very different than (growers) have dealt with in the past," said David Yarborough, a cooperative extension blueberry specialist and professor of horticulture at the University of Maine.
