Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Study links thyroid problems in Iowa women with farm chemicals
Radio Iowa - 9/6/2010.
A study involving Iowa women who live on farms finds exposure to some common farm chemicals may bring a greater risk for developing thyroid disease. Dr. Whitney Goldner, a researcher at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, says they studied more than 16,000 women who are married to farmers who were licensed to apply pesticides in Iowa and North Carolina.
Pumpkins plump a bit early
Portland Press Herald - 9/6/2010.
By Kelley Bouchard – The growing season got off to a disappointing start at the Snell Family Farm in Buxton. A hard frost in May destroyed most of the tiny apples and pears that were just starting to form on the farm's fruit trees. But last week – two weeks ahead of schedule – the Snells started harvesting a bountiful pumpkin crop that will help offset the earlier loss.
With MOOMilk, it’s all about the families
Bangor Daily News - 9/6/2010.
Op-Ed by David Bright – While the recent news regarding Maine’s Own Organic Milk Co. (MOOMilk) has been about lack of cash and milk cartons, the real story of MOOMilk is about Maine families. It’s because of these farm families that MOOMilk exists. It was started to help keep them in business, to keep their land open and productive. And to keep their operations profitable, so they can be passed on to yet another generation.
While we weren’t looking, food became big part of state economy
Kennebec Journal - 9/4/2010.
Op-ed by Theodora J. Kalikow – What’s for lunch? On Maine Watch this summer, I heard that Maine has become a food destination, with people coming here specifically to go to certain restaurants or eat special foods. Turns out, locally grown Maine food is getting to be a big part of our economy.
