Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Fowl law not fair
Portland Press Herald - 12/21/2009.
By Beth Quimby – Organic farmer Rick Stanley has been building up his poultry business at his aptly named Chick Farm in Wells with the plan of someday going big time. He started raising chickens a couple of years ago, selling them in the summer to the people who bought shares in his community-supported agriculture program. This year, he is selling the slaughtered chickens year-round to customers who show up at the farm. He is building a new brooder this winter and expanding beyond the 700 chickens he raises annually. He plans to obtain a license someday that would allow him to sell his chickens anywhere in the state.
Entrepeneurs keep the local food movement hot
BusinessWeek - 12/18/2009.
By John Tozzi – Entrepreneurs are flocking to local food, starting businesses devoted to producing and delivering food within their communities. Just as consumers focus new attention on what we eat and where it comes from, farmers, foodmakers, restaurateurs, retailers, distributors, and processors are rethinking the business models behind it.
State’s toxics efforts weighed
Kennebec Journal - 12/18/2009.
By John Richardson – Augusta: Maine's plan to be one of the first states to track and regulate toxic chemicals in toys and other children's products drew praise and criticism at a public hearing Thursday. Laura Thompson Brady, of Hallowell, was among the parents, physicians and other supporters who said it's time to make manufacturers disclose the presence of toxic chemicals in teething rings, dolls, car seats and other products.
Feds find money for milk price supports
Kennebec Journal - 12/18/2009.
Maine dairy farmers are catching a small break with news they will be eligible for a $1.5 million, one-time payment from the federal government to help make up for historically low milk prices. The money will be allocated through a new U.S. Department of Agriculture program called the Dairy Economic Loss Assistance Payment, which was recently approved as part of the $447 billion spending bill passed by Congress. The dairy program will cost $290 million, nationwide.
