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 now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Appleton farmers among few in nation to raise water buffalo
Bangor Daily News - 6/21/2011.
By Emily Burnham – Vern slowly shook his enormous horned head as he approached the metal fence that encircled his pasture. As the dominant male of the herd of Asian water buffalo that Jessica and Brian Farrar keep at Stage Coach Farm in Appleton, Vern, a huge bull, appeared accustomed to being the first to greet newcomers to his property.
Making wooden kitchen spoons and similar utensils
The Contrary Farmer - 6/20/2011.
By Gene Logsdon – There are only two little secrets to making spoons, ladles, and forks out of wood. The first is that you don’t carve the spoon from a block of wood; rather, you find a branch with a spoon in it. Nothing mysterious about that advice. A proper spoon or ladle must have a curve in the handle to be designed for easy use.
Can small farms feed the world and protect nature?
Treehugger - 6/17/2011.
By Sami Grover – When I posted that a focus on food miles alone risked oversimplifying the local food debate, I noted that there is a constant battle between those who claim that small-scale agriculture could feed the world, and those who argue that increasing the efficiency of industrial monoculture is the only way to go. David Suzuki has a good piece over at the Huffington Post on whether small-scale farming can indeed feed the world, and whether it can nurture biodiversity in the process.
Soil lab at UMaine to stay open, Collins says
Bangor Daily News - 6/16/2011.
By Eric Russell – Orono: A soil and water research laboratory at the University of Maine will remain open after U.S. Sen. Susan Collins secured a commitment from the White House this week to restore its funding. The only reason the lab was slated for closure is because it was erroneously labeled as a congressional earmark during contentious federal budget negotiations in March, the senator said.
