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.

Maine Farmers Worried About Costs of New Food Safety Rules
Maine Public Broadcasting - 8/19/2013.
By A.J. Higgins - Representatives of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration got more than an earful from Maine farmers today during a scheduled listening session in Augusta that focused on proposed rules for implementing the federal Food Safety Modernization Act. The act was passed by Congress two years ago, after a multi-state foodborne illness outbreak killed 30 people who had consumed tainted cantaloupes. Maine farmers say they support food safety rules, but object to some proposed policies they claim are unnecessary and potentially devastating to small growers.
'Monsanto Law' Brings Uproar to Chile
Common Dreams - 8/19/2013.
By Andrea Germanos - Protesters filled the streets of over 10 cities in Chile on Saturday to march against what has been dubbed 'Monsanto Law,' a measure critics say risks the country's food sovereignty while putting seeds in the hands of a few multi-national corporations.
Battling India's Monsanto Protection Act, Farmers Demand End to GMO
Occupy.com - 8/19/2013.
By Paromita Pain - On August 8, thousands of farmers and activists from across 20 Indian states demonstrated in New Delhi against the Biotechnology Regulatory Authority of India (BRAI) Bill, and demanded an end to GMOs in India. 53-year-old farmer Jaswant Sainhara, standing with his son, proudly held up a placard that read, “Monsanto, Quit India.”
Scientists Suspect Livestock-Feed Additives Are Behind Distress
The Wall Street Journal - 8/19/2013.
By Jesse Newman and Kelsey Gee - A growing number of cattle arriving for slaughter at U.S. meatpacking plants have recently shown unusual signs of distress. Some walked stiffly, while others had trouble moving or simply lay down, their tongues hanging from their mouths. A few even sat down in strange positions, looking more like dogs than cows.
