2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine's climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Eat. Tender, sweet, juicy contrasts with nutty crunch. Good heavens, what a privilege to eat like that.
Banks Put a Price on Earth's Life Support
Scientific American - 8/30/2013.
By Paul Brown and The Daily Climate - London: It is not easy to put a value on an intact forest, a clean river, or unpolluted air, but that is what a group of the world's biggest banks is attempting to do.
Could More Efficient Crops Feed a Growing, Warmer World?
Scientific American - 8/30/2013.
By Erin Brodwin - In the shadow of a boisterous debate about the safety of growing crops that have been genetically modified, otherwise known as GMOs, the potential of good old-fashioned crossbreeding has been making quite a stir in the agricultural community.
