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 and Sustainable Agriculture News
Scientists untangle multiple causes of bee colony disorder
Environmental News Service - 7/29/2009.
Pullman, Washington: A microscopic pathogen and pesticides embedded in old honeycombs are two major contributors to the bee disease known as colony collapse disorder, which has wiped out thousands of beehives throughout the United States and Europe over the past three years, new research at Washington State University has confirmed.
Food Standards Agency: Organic 'has no health benefits'
BBC News - 7/29/2009.
There is little difference in nutritional value and no evidence of any extra health benefits from eating organic produce, UK researchers found. The Food Standards Agency who commissioned the report said the findings would help people make an "informed choice". But the Soil Association criticised the study and called for better research.
Got the blues?
Kennebec Journal - 7/29/2009.
By Larry Grard – The high-bush variety of blueberry featured at you-pick blueberry farms is faring just fine, thank you. The incessant rains of June and July that have blighted some of the state's wild blueberry fields have not damaged the high-bush plants, area farmers say. They are ready and open for the you-pick season, which lasts for most of the month.
Going with the grain that grows in Maine
Portland Press Herald - 7/29/2009.
By Meredith Goad – When artisanal bakers and farmers get together this weekend at the third annual Kneading Conference in Skowhegan, they'll have lots to talk about – and celebrate. For years, Maine bakers have bemoaned the lack of locally-grown wheat that could help them create fresher, better-tasting bread products. Now the issue is finally taking a giant leap forward with a new $1.3 million federal grant that will be used to develop organic wheat farming in Maine and Vermont.
