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
California’s ag crisis and our concentrated food system
Grist - 9/2/2009.
By Tom Philpott – California’s severe drought – which could well be related to climate change – isn’t just menacing Los Angeles. The drought has helped tip the state’s Central Valley, epicenter of U.S. fruit and vegetable production, into a severe crisis, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The cruelty of industrial egg-riclture
Grist - 9/2/2009.
By Kurt Michael Friese –Iowa is the number-one producer of eggs in the country, with more than twice the number of laying hens than Ohio, the number two state.

The way we eat is trashing the fragile conditions that make human life possible
Grist - 9/1/2009.
By Tom Philpott – In the ongoing debate about whether sustainable agriculture can “feed the world,” it’s important not to lose sight of what industrial agriculture is doing to ecosystems—both in specific areas and on a grand scale.
