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.

By Melissa Locker - From Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine, the idea of living off the land, eating locally and growing food are admirable concepts that appeal to many city dwellers. Unfortunately, urban homesteading often provides a romanticized view of farming providing the bounty without all the work. When an erstwhile farmer lays down his pitchfork and ignores the vegetable garden, nothing much happens. However when a chicken farmer gives up on the dream of collecting fresh eggs, a new home must be found for the hens.
