Know Your Organic Producers!

Joel and Annalisa Wild Miller of Wild Miller Farm in Palermo raise MOFGA-certified organic produce and hay, which they sell through their farm stand/credit-system CSA, wholesale accounts and at the Common Ground Country Fair. They farm with draft horses and say, "We believe that carefully executed and ecologically sound farming is an art, something we constantly strive for. Also that farming with draft animals is a craft, one that we try to improve upon every day." They are also raising their two young children on the farm. For more information, please visit

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Fears for crops as shock figures from America show scale of bee catastrophe
Common Dreams - 5/3/2010.
By Alison Benjamin – Disturbing evidence that honeybees are in terminal decline has emerged from the United States where, for the fourth year in a row, more than a third of colonies have failed to survive the winter. The decline of the country's estimated 2.4 million beehives began in 2006, when a phenomenon dubbed colony collapse disorder (CCD) led to the disappearance of hundreds of thousands of colonies. Since then more than three million colonies in the US and billions of honeybees worldwide have died.
A New Deal for local economies
Common Dreams - 5/3/2010.
By Stacy Mitchell – Let me begin by sharing some good news. Scattered here and there, in my country and in yours, the seeds of a new, more local, and more durable economy are taking root. Locally grown food has soared in popularity. There are now 5,274 active farmers markets in the United States. Remarkably, almost one of every two of these markets was started within the last decade. Food co-ops and neighborhood greengrocers are likewise on the rise.
St. Albans farm’s goat school gains fame, boosts tourism
Bangor Daily News - 5/3/2010.
By Diana Bowley – St. Albans, Maine: It isn’t a tea party or a spa treatment for Mom that will draw more than 100 people from 21 states to this small community on Mother’s Day weekend. The annual event, which has helped spark the local economy, really isn’t about honoring mothers at all, unless you are a doe. Ken and Janice Spaulding of Stony Knolls Farm, who raise about 35 registered dairy goats and sell the milk and milk-related products at local farmers markets, once again will hold their two-day goat school on Mother’s Day weekend.
Portland Farmers Market joins elite
Maine Sunday Telegram - 5/2/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila and Edward D. Murphy – Portland: Farmers set up tables with fresh produce, flowers and other goods Saturday, just as they have for most of the past 242 years. But this year, the farmers and their market are getting a little extra boost of publicity. The Portland Farmers' Market, holding its first session of the season Saturday morning in Deering Oaks, has been named one of America's 10 best by Travel + Leisure magazine.
