2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. 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 available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Bees are not harmful and should not be banished
Portland Press Herald - 5/23/2009.
Letter by Carole Whelan – The fruits, nuts and vegetables you eat, the flowers you love, even your coffee beans, are made possible by honeybees (and wild pollinators). Bees labor all day with no other desire than to carry three vital things to their hives: nectar, pollen and water. You receive the life-giving benefits for free.
Pesticides bill 'a model of good negotiation'
Kennebec Journal - 5/22/2009.
Letter by Rep. Seth Berry – For the most part, your take on the Legislature's pesticides bills ("Maine May Get Cease-fire in Pesticides War," May 18) is spot-on. The recent unanimous vote of the Legislature's Agriculture Committee to support my bill, LD 1293, was a model of good negotiation.
Industrial farming is giving us less nutritious food
Mother Earth News - 5/22/2009.
By Cheryl Long – We now have solid, scientific evidence of this troubling trend. For example: In wheat and barley, protein concentrations declined by 30 to 50 percent between the years 1938 and 1990. Likewise, a study of 45 corn varieties developed from 1920 to 2001, grown side by side, found that the concentrations of protein, oil and three amino acids have all declined in the newer varieties. Six minerals have declined by 22 to 39 percent in 14 widely grown wheat varieties developed over the past 100 years.
Food you grow, cook yourself beats restaurant cuisine hands down
Kennebec Journal - 5/22/2009.
By Denis Thoet – We don't eat out. Not that we don't appreciate good cuisine: French, Italian, Thai, Mexican or good pizza, or the best place to get breakfast – eggs, home fries, toast, strong coffee – or good fast food. We do, very much. That's why we eat at home.
