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
Where the salmonella really came from
The Atlantic - 9/8/2010.
By Barry Estabrook – Put simply, the cause of the current salmonella outbreak is industrial-scale factory farming, which has also been the cause of virtually every instance of bacterial food contamination the country has experienced in recent years. Huge farms and processors that ship their products across the nation have given us E. coli in ground beef and spinach, Salmonella in peanut butter and fresh salsa, and Listeria in processed chicken.
Chemical lawn care products face ban in NJ
NorthJersey.com - 9/8/2010.
By Scott Fallon – Lawns may turn more brittle and yellow, but lakes, bays and marshes could become a lot cleaner under a bill making its way through Trenton that would ban many lawn care products on the shelf today. Called the most comprehensive and prohibitive legislation of its kind in the nation by supporters and opponents alike, the bill calls for a sea change in the way New Jerseyans apply fertilizer to their lawns.
Let them eat meat but farm it right
The Guardian [UK] - 9/7/2010.
By George Monbiot – This will not be an easy column to write. I am about to put down 1,200 words in support of a book that starts by attacking me and often returns to this sport. But it has persuaded me that I was wrong. More to the point, it has opened my eyes to some fascinating complexities in what seemed to be a black and white case.
Who dares question the industrial food system over GM salmon?
The Guardian [UK] - 9/7/2010.
By Dan Kennedy – Last Friday the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) took a potentially dangerous step. The agency ruled that salmon whose genes have been altered so that they grow more rapidly than their wild counterparts are safe for human consumption. In so doing, the FDA opened the door for salmon to become just another unhealthful cog in the industrial-food machine. And it may have foisted upon the public yet another cancer risk.
