Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Before Iowa’s tainted eggs, there was Maine
The Atlantic - 9/9/2010.
By Joe Fassler – In 1988, New York State placed an embargo on eggs produced by Quality Egg of New England. Several New York residents had been sickened with Salmonella, and the illnesses were traced to the company's facilities in Turner, Maine. The FDA found that henhouses there were contaminated with Salmonella Enteritidis (SE), the strain most commonly transmitted to humans through undercooked eggs. The offending facilities were (and are still) owned by Jack DeCoster, the egg mogul whose Iowa laying houses were blamed for last month's massive recall.
Backyard garden farm blooms in Cape Elizabeth
Portland Press Herald - 9/8/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Lisa Fernandes samples an Italian pole bean from the vine outside her home, while on the deck nearby a solar oven is slowing converting fresh tomatoes to tomato paste. The process will take about a day and a half in full sun, without the aid of electricity or natural gas.
This year’s Maine apple crop offers early pickin’s
Portland Press Herald - 9/8/2010.
By Meredith Goad – Apple season is in full swing here in Maine, a good two weeks early. But Steve Eveld says it's "kind of painful" to walk through his organic orchard. His Raven Hill Orchard in East Waterboro is small, just 700 trees, but it grows 40 varieties of apples, many of them highly-prized antique varieties. Thanks to an unexpected frost last spring, he's lost 75 to 80 percent of them.
Chef matches apples, pork in a very happy marriage
Portland Press Herald - 9/8/2010.
By Meredith Goad – Apples and pork go together like the taste of hot cider and the smell of a fire in the woodstove. There's a warmth to the pairing that makes it classic comfort food. The juices of smoky, toothsome pork mingle with sweet and slightly tangy fruit, and each ingredient is elevated to an entirely new level. With each forkful comes a sigh.
