Hancock Family Farm

Know Your Organic Producers!

Meet Gina Hancock of MOFGA-certified organic Hancock Family Farm in Casco, Maine. The Hancocks (Gina, Geof and their two daughters) grow vegetables, vegetable seedlings, cut flowers and herbs, which they sell through their own farm stand, at the Bridgton and Kennebunk farmers’ markets and through their community supported agriculture program. "We believe that building and tending quality soil will translate into healthy, nutritious vegetables; that livestock deserves respectful handling and the opportunity to live out their lives on pasture; and that great farming doesn't happen without community," say the Hancocks. Learn more about Hancock Family Farm on their website and on their Facebook page.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
New federal rule on seasonal work could imperil state’s apple industry
Bangor Daily News - 2/23/2010.
By Sharon Kiley Mack - Machias: A new U.S. Department of Labor rule concerning temporary agricultural workers could have an adverse impact on Maine’s apple industry, growers said last week. The H-2A program rule which will take effect March 15 requires growers to advertise locally for agricultural positions and increases wages for temporary agricultural workers to $10.50 an hour.
Food fairs aim to reap support for local farms
Bangor Daily News - 2/23/2010.
By Judy Harrison – Bangor: Residents will be able to learn how they can support area farmers and eat better this year at meetings to be held around the state Sunday. Again this year, the Maine Council of Churches and the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association will sponsor farm fairs where people can learn about community sustainable agriculture.
Sustainability just science backing up good sense
Maine Sunday Telegram - 2/21/2010.
By Tom Atwell – Sustainable gardening is a trend. Many growers, mostly smaller food farmers but also some ornamental garden designers, are working toward sustainability. So when New England Grows, the trade show for the horticulture industry held each winter in Boston, offered a lecture on ''The Scientific Underpinnings of Sustainability,'' I figured I could come away with some useful knowledge. What I didn't realize was that I was going to have to learn about the laws of thermodynamics, specifically the second law of thermodynamics, or the entropy law.
