2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster Unveiled

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show this week. 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.

Kennebec Journal - 3/22/2010.
By Betty Adams – East Winthrop: The dark red shoots rise from gnarled limbs of dwarf apple trees, near where a stream widens toward a pond. This fall, the fruit from those branches is destined to form the base of iced cider to be produced by a new venture – the Kennebec Cider Company. Ben and Betsy Parks-Stamm, both 30, bought the six-acre former Whit's Orchard last fall and have set up a cider-making operation in the lower-level garage of the ranch home.
Researchers: HRCS is much worse than table sugar
Grist - 3/22/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – The long-running, contentious debate over the dangers of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) may be approaching a conclusive end – one not likely to please those sensitive souls over at the Corn Refiners Association.
