MOFGA's Low-Income CSAs Fundraiser
We have reached our $6,000 goal!

Thanks to more than 60 generous donors, we raised more than $6,000 toward our effort to help seven organic farmers offer half-price CSA shares of healthy, organic food to low-income Maine families! We are so grateful to all of you! This fundraiser runs until May 27, and donations are still welcomed.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
How local can you grow?
Maine Sunday Telegram - 8/2/2009.
By Ray Routhier – Beth Richardson started with a small vegetable garden, and quickly found she really liked the idea of growing some of her family's food. As her children grew and used the backyard less over the years, she decided to branch into other kinds of food producing, such as growing fruit trees, raising chickens and keeping bees for honey. She took classes from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, read books and asked local farmers questions. Today, Richardson's pantry is filled with jams, preserves, potatoes, eggs, beans, honey and lots of other food she produced with her own hands, on her own soil. On Saturday, she'll open her backyard to people who want to see how she does it.
Friend in knead: a friend indeed
Kennebec Journal - 8/2/2009.
By Doug Harlow – Skowhegan: Scott Barden and his wife, Cate Conway, of Maine Wood Heat Co. in Norridgewock, already had cranked up their wood-fired oven, baking pita bread Saturday, when they got a visit from Michael Scholz of Albion. Scholz, a baker, wheat grower and partner in the Somerset Grist Mill at the former Somerset County jail, had just what the bakers needed – locally grown wheat that could be milled into flour right there.
In a cramped garage in Maine, they’re making a better butter
Boston Globe - 8/2/2009.
By Jenn Abelson – When most of his neighbors are asleep, Dan Patry shuffles into his garage at 1 a.m., wearing a hair net and elbow-length rubber gloves, navigating through a maze of stainless pipes, tanks, and trays. Where most people keep their cars, Patry churns out some of the world’s best butter, and he has the award to prove it. Patry’s brand, Kate’s Homemade Butter, took top prize last fall at the World Dairy Expo - the Oscars of the dairy industry.
Out of the kitchen, onto the couch
The New York Times - 8/2/2009.
By Michael Pollan – I was only 8 when “The French Chef” first appeared on American television in 1963, but it didn’t take long for me to realize that this Julia Child had improved the quality of life around our house.
