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.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
24 hours in Belfast for the locavore
Penobscot Bay Pilot - 7/15/2013.
By Kay Stevens - You have your own garden, you own a CSA share and you're not afraid to ask the waiter 20 questions on where it was grown, if it's local and in season. When the locavore goes on vacation, it's all about the food and drink. Belfast has always had the earthy, artsy vibe, but like its Midcoast siblings Camden and Rockland, this bohemian town has been steadily gaining a hip reputation over the last 10 years, largely due to the artists and new eateries moving in. So come to Belfast where cool meets collectivism and get ready to spend 24 hours in locavore heaven.

The Hill - 7/15/2013.

Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) to mandate labeling on foods that contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Monsanto’s Patent Appeal Rejected by Indian Government, Saving Farmers, Food and Lives
Nation of Change - 7/15/2013.
By Christina Sarich - Less than a week ago, Monsanto got more than a slap on the wrist from the Indian government – they were delivered two fat rejections – one from the patent appeals court and another rejection that was upheld by the Intellectual Property Appellate Board.
Where You Can Pick Blueberries in Maine
Bangor Daily News - 7/15/2013.
By Diane Atwood - If you’re looking for a farm that will let you pick your own blueberries, you’re in luck because there are several in Maine. Most places are opening mid to late July, but some not until the first of August.
