Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The sweet science of the Maine strawberry
Bangor Daily News - 6/14/2013.
By Emily Burnham - Maine strawberries are a temperamental thing. Too much rain and cool weather, and they’ll be soggy and tasteless. Too many days of dry, hot sun, and they’ll shrivel up before they can be picked.
Why Safer Food Workers Mean Safer Food
In These Times - 6/14/2013.
By Michelle Chen - Americans these days are nervous about what they eat, and they should be, what with outbreaks of foodborne illnesses, meat pumped with veterinary drugs and genetically modified organisms creeping into our groceries. And in May, when the iconic brand of Smithfield Foods was bought by a Chinese multinational, there seemed to be still more cause for alarm.
A Modern Farmer in Congress
Modern Farmer - 6/14/2013.
By Tom Wolf - By the time Chellie Pingree was elected to represent Maine’s 1st district in the United States House of Representatives in 2008, she had already amassed more than thirty years of farming experience in the state.

Huffington Post - 6/14/2013.
