Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
What’s MOOMilk? It’s Maine’s Own Organic
Portland Press Herald - 1/26/2010.
By Beth Quimby – The first organic milk produced by a Maine-owned dairy company is about to appear in dairy cases. Maine's Own Organic Milk – MOOMilk – should be available at health food stores, Hannaford stores and Whole Foods this week, if the company's packaging machine can be repaired in time. The milk was scheduled to be available Saturday, but production problems caused a delay. The organic milk, in green-red-and-blue cardboard cartons, is being produced by 10 farms in Aroostook, Kennebec, Penobscot and Washington counties, and processed and packaged at Smiling Hill Farm in Westbrook.
Meal deal
Portland Press Herald - 1/26/2010.
South Portland: It's their first day baking for the public in the Bake Shop Lab (bumper sticker on door: "Eat Dessert First"), and a group of culinary arts students at Southern Maine Community College are trying to cut a gorgeous carrot cake into a dozen even pieces. "You might have to sacrifice one or two to the gods, and then we'll go from there," instructs Chef David Libby, chuckling. "That means we've got to eat it. We do a lot of sampling in here."
[Farmed] shrimp’s dirty secrets
Alternet - 1/25/2010.
By Jill Richardson – In his book, Bottomfeeder: How to Eat Ethically in a World of Vanishing Seafood, Taras Grescoe paints a repulsive picture of how shrimp are farmed in one region of India. The shrimp pond preparation begins with urea, superphosphate, and diesel, then progresses to the use of piscicides (fish-killing chemicals like chlorine and rotenone), pesticides and antibiotics (including some that are banned in the U.S.), and ends by treating the shrimp with sodium tripolyphosphate (a suspected neurotoxicant), Borax, and occasionally caustic soda.
Oakhurst to distribute state’s organic milk
Kennebec Journal - 1/25/2010.
By Ethan Wilensky-Lanford – Local organic milk is about to come to Maine in a big way. MOOMilk – Maine's Own Organic Milk – will be distributed by Oakhurst Dairy throughout the state and in some stores elsewhere in New England beginning Tuesday. "This truly is local milk," said Bill Eldridge of Bar Harbor, MOOMilk's general manager. "Customers who buy MOOMilk will know they are supporting the Maine economy by supporting Maine family businesses."
