Ticket prices at the gates are increasing to help support improved services and higher operation costs. You may still buy Advance Tickets at any of the OUTLETS LISTED HERE up until Fair time.

Our Store is now closed except for memberships, donations and registrations for events and workshops so that we may focus on getting our new inventory ready for the Country Store on the fairgrounds. 2014 Fair T-shirts, tote bags, aprons and more will be available online by October 1.

 

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
With food-system reform slowed to a crawl, local initiatives come to fore
Grist - 1/24/2011.
By Tom Philpott – I think we have seen the scope of the Obama administration's commitment to food-policy reform: things that don't cost real money or challenge the structure of the food industry. I'm thinking of the USDA's Know Your Farmer initiative, which doesn't bring new money to the table, but rather packages existing outlays in a way that supports sustainable agriculture.
Coalition looking to fill more Mainers’ plates
Portland Press Herald - 1/24/2011.
By John Richardson – Six nonprofits are teaming up to expand food supplies to hungry Mainers and reverse the rise in the rate of people struggling to feed their families. Leaders of the coalition, called the Maine Hunger Initiative, hope to generate more funding and food donations for pantries, which are facing increasing demand. They also plan to push for statewide policies and legislation to reduce hunger and the poverty that causes it.
Resource revolts: the year of living dangerously
Common Dreams - 1/24/2011.
By Michael T. Klare – Get ready for a rocky year. From now on, rising prices, powerful storms, severe droughts and floods, and other unexpected events are likely to play havoc with the fabric of global society, producing chaos and political unrest. Start with a simple fact: the prices of basic food staples are already approaching or exceeding their 2008 peaks, that year when deadly riots erupted in dozens of countries around the world.
Eat a zucchini and call me in the morning
Kennebec Journal - 1/22/2011.
By Erin Rhoda – Skowhegan: When 20-year-old Angel Quattrone went to Skowhegan Family Medicine for the first check-up of her unborn baby, she was in for a surprise. Her physician, Dr. Michael Lambke, examined Quattrone and the fetus. And he talked about vegetables. They weren't just any vegetables, but free ones from the Skowhegan Farmers' Market.
