Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine farmers offer peek behind barn doors
Portland Press Herald - 7/21/2013.
By Beth Quimby - Freeport: Barn doors were flung open, fresh produce samples arranged on trays and farm equipment rolled out as dozens of farms welcomed the public Sunday during Maine Open Farm Day.
GMOs in Organics? Seriously?
Organic Connections - 7/21/2013.
By Ken Roseboro - Proponents of biotech­nol­ogy have recently pro­posed inte­grat­ing genet­i­cally mod­i­fied organ­isms into organic agri­cul­ture.

The Guardian [UK] - 7/20/2013.
By Tobias Jones - The brilliant American writer Wendell Berry once wrote that "eating is an agricultural act".

In it, Robinson argues that humanity's 10,000-year-old fixation on agriculture has stripped our most commonly eaten foods of most of their phytonutrients, which are plant-based chemical compounds that keep us healthy.
