Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Whatever you knead
Portland Press Herald - 4/20/2010.
By Meredith Goad – If past years are any indication, bakers and bread-heads will be turning up in droves for the fourth annual Kneading Conference and Artisan Bread Fair in Skowhegan July 29-31. The conference is an annual gathering of professional and home bakers, chefs, oven builders, millers, farmers experimenting with growing local grains, and people with an interest in sustainable agriculture and what it can do for rural economies.
Time to seek and enjoy – not destroy – dandelions
Portland Press Herald - 4/20/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Don't let the marketers fool you. Dandelions are a superfood, not a super-weed. The pushers of chemical-weapons-in-a-spray-bottle want us to see the dandelion's bright yellow blooms and signature jagged leaves and think "seek and destroy." But what those of us hip to the culinary scene really think is "seek and enjoy."
Feds alter livestock tracking
Kennebec Journal - 4/20/2010.
By Mechele Cooper – Augusta: The state is now eligible to receive $20,000 to upgrade record keeping for tracking livestock. Maine's state veterinarian, Dr. Don Hoenig, said the funding would allow Maine to review current procedures and move to an electronic format.
Acquire some mussels
Portland Press Herald - 4/18/2010.
By Beth Quimby – Casco Bay: New listing: Turnkey blue mussel farm with strong brand awareness, three mussel rafts with new predator nets, 60,000 pounds of market-ready inventory, a 41-foot processing barge filled with equipment, a 27-foot commuter boat with trailer and state leases. Asking price: $275,000.
