Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Wanted: ‘Grow pair’ who love children, life on the farm
Bangor Daily News - 4/27/2015.
By Natalie Feulner - Last year, Sarah Smith, farmer and owner of Grassland Organic Farm in Skowhegan, found herself unexpectedly single; wrangling three kids ages 3, 6 and 9; and trying to manage the day-to-day of farm life. “I’m a great mom. … But in the end, I love to work and I love to work on my farm. I don’t want to sacrifice that, but I’m also not interested in putting them in day care all summer,” Smith said. “So, there is this balance that needs to happen.” This year, Smith is hoping to implement a unique solution: a “grow pair.”

Bangor Daily News - 4/23/2015.
By Kate Cone - When I saw on the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners (MOFGA) website that Ben Rooney, a Colby College grad, was beginning to farm rice in nearby Benton, I got excited. Not as excited as I was about finding heirloom apples, since that involves detective work, but almost as excited, and you should be too.
