Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Government cracks down on farmers who hire children
The New York Times - 6/19/2010.
By Erik Eckhom – White Lake, N.C.: The Obama administration has opened a broad campaign of enforcement against farmers who employ children and underpay workers, hiring hundreds of investigators and raising fines for labor and wage violators.
No vacation from good nutrition
Portland Press Herald - 6/17/2010.
By Kelley Bouchard – Portland: The spaghetti was tasty and the atmosphere was welcoming Wednesday evening in the cafeteria at Lincoln Middle School, the site of a new, free summer dinner program that's geared toward families. For Vicki McMahan, a mother of two who has a mental health disability, it's one more way to stretch her food budget.
Mainers decry federal government’s slight against potatoes
Bangor Daily News - 6/17/2010.
By Jen Lynds – Presque Isle: Don Flannery, executive director of the Maine Potato Board, knows that potatoes have gotten a really bad rap in the past few years. A surge in low carbohydrate or no carbohydrate diets a few years ago led many people to substitute a serving of mashed cauliflower for an order of mashed potatoes. Despite an aggressive campaign by the potato industry to point out the health benefits of the product, some people still believe potatoes are unhealthful – and it appears that the U.S. Department of Agriculture may agree.

Portland Press Herald - 6/16/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Strawberry season – one of the sweetest times of year – is upon us, which means now is the moment to snatch up their fleeting goodness. In another month or so, nature’s candy store continues to throw open its doors as blueberries begin to ripen on Maine farms.
