Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
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.

Village Soup - 12/18/2009.
Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan announced a new pilot project under the 'Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food' initiative for farmers to establish high tunnels – also known as hoop houses – to increase the availability of locally-grown produce in a conservation-friendly way.

By Susan M. Cover – Augusta: A Portland lawmaker said Tuesday she will introduce an amendment to the state's medical marijuana law that would allow large greenhouses to bid on growing rights and put the state in charge of overseeing the quality of the crop. Rep.

Responding to the growing ranks of people with food allergies, special dietary preferences and interest in locally sourced foods, a new crop of caterers is cooking up an interesting and diverse array of edibles.
