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.

Organic farmers push for pesticide notification
Portland Press Herald - 3/24/2010.
By Beth Quimby – Maine farmers are divided over a legislative proposal to change a new system for notifying residents of pesticide spraying near their homes. The pesticide notification law, passed unanimously last year in the Senate and the House, created a statewide registry so residents who live within a quarter-mile of any farm or other spraying site can sign up to be notified before spraying is done.
