Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
MOOMilk to arrive at stores soon
Bangor Daily News - 1/22/2010.
Bar Harbor: Maine’s Own Organic Milk – or MOOMilk – will soon be available in grocery store dairy cases throughout Maine and in selected stores in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, the company announced Thursday. Produced by 10 Maine family organic dairy farms in Washington, Aroostook, Penobscot and Kennebec counties, the milk will be trucked by Schoppee Milk Transport of Holden to Smiling Hill Dairy in Westbrook for processing, then distributed by Oakhurst Dairy of Portland and Crown O’ Maine Organic Co-op of Gardiner.
Group decides wintertime needs farmers markets, too
Portland Press Herald - 1/21/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – The group that organizes the indoor Brunswick Winter Market in the Fort Andross Mill plans to bring a similar venture to Portland next month. Beginning Feb. 13, the Portland Winter Market will set up shop in a vacant storefront at 85 Free St., across from the Cumberland County Civic Center. Vendors will sell vegetables, bread, cheese, yogurt, milk, beef, pork and fish.
Bringing organic and conventional farmers together on common interests
Portland Press Herald - 1/20/2010.
Op-Ed by Amanda Beal – On Jan. 13, I spent four perplexing hours at the Maine Agricultural Trades Show, listening to a parade of speakers who were presenting in a block billed as a "Sustainability Mini-Conference." From the information I read ahead of this event, including an endorsement from Maine Agriculture Commissioner Seth Bradstreet posted on the Maine.gov Web site, I gathered that the goal of this series was to heal fractures between the conventional and organic farming communities.
Senate should pass food protection legislation
Portland Press Herald - 1/20/2010.
Op-ed by Tammy Morrill – It's hard for me to imagine a time when I was carefree about what I ate. It all changed in December 2008, when I suddenly became ill with what I thought was a stomach virus. It took weeks of illness before doctors finally discovered that I had salmonella, contracted from eating Kellogg's Austin Peanut Butter Crackers, which I had bought in my office cafeteria.
