Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The Farm to Tablet Economy
Modern Farmer - 7/8/2013.
By Gloria Dawson - Entrepreneur Ellen McGeeney believes that online commerce can save small farms.
Farmers worry about fate of immigration bills
Portland Press Herald - 7/8/2013.
By John Flesher, AP - For northern Michigan fruit grower Pat McGuire, the most potent symbol of the immigration debate isn't grainy television footage showing people slipping furtively across the U.S.-Mexican border.

EU-U.S. Trade: A Tale Of Two Farms

In Europe, the cultivation of genetically modified crops is banned, while in the U.S., they are a central part of food production.

Bangor Daily News - 7/8/2013.
Op-Ed by Andrew Hikade - A simple truth is that no Maine business wants to sell products containing dangerous chemicals. That’s particularly true for restaurants like mine that pride themselves on serving foods that are local, fresh and healthy.
