Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Supporting local farms starts in early spring
Bangor Daily News - 2/29/2012.
By Aislinn Sarnacki – Money was tight for the owners of Peacemeal Farm in Dixmont a few springs ago. Owners Mark Guzzi and Marcia Ferry were worried they couldn’t afford the supplies they needed for a successful growing season. So they turned to their longtime customers and offered them a deal – money for discounted vegetables. Thus, they joined Maine’s rapidly growing CSA community.
The State of the Chicken
The Atlantic - 2/29/2012.
By Ari LeVaux – The age-old debate over which comes first seems close to being resolved in favor of the chicken. After years of hens being treated as little more than egg-dispensers, concern is growing for the well-being of the layers themselves.
Yet another look at winter grazing
The Contrary Farmer - 2/29/2012.
By Gene Logsdon – Over the years I have become very intrigued with the idea of grazing livestock year-round in the north, even though I have found as many negative things to say about the idea as positive. My thinking has been that wild cud-chewers and horses make it through winter just fine unless they become over-populated, so why not cows and sheep?
Environmental obesogens make children and adults fat
Institute for Science in Society - 2/29/2012.
By Joe Cummins – Metabolic diseases and obesity are on the increase over the last decades. In France, the proportion of population overweight or obese rose 12 % between 1997 and 2003. In the United States, the prevalence of obesity was 32.2% among adult men and 35.5% among adult women in 2007-2008; and obesity in adolescence was significantly associated with increased risk of severe obesity in adulthood. In 2011, a national study of infants and toddlers in the US found that nearly one-third were overweight or obese at 9 months and 2 years of age.
