Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
A suit airs debate on organic vs. modified crops
The New York Times - 2/8/2012.
By Julia Moskin – Silent in flannel shirts and ponytails, farmers from Saskatchewan and South Dakota, Mississippi and Massachusetts lined the walls of a packed federal courtroom in Manhattan last week, as their lawyers told a judge that they were no longer able to keep genetically modified crops from their fields.
Maine peaches have delicious past
Portland Press Herald - 2/7/2012.
Letter by C. Waite Maclin – Thanks so much for the fine article by Dennis Hoey, "Do I dare to plant a peach?" in the Jan. 29 Maine Sunday Telegram. As a weekend orchardist and gardener, I have certainly experienced changes in the climate since 1978, when I moved to Maine from Virginia. Last frosts in the spring come much earlier and first frosts in the fall much later, I remember often calling neighbors for a "tomato alert" in early October. Now killing frosts can come the middle or end of October.

Portland Press Herald - 2/7/2012.
By Dennis Hoey – Portland: Dairy farmers will be permitted to sell raw milk at the city's farmers markets without having to warn customers about its potential health risks. After a long discussion, the City Council voted Monday night not to amend the city's Farmers Market Ordinance to require vendors to display a placard and provide handouts to consumers detailing the risks of unpasteurized milk.
How to tap birch sap and why you’d want to
