Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Savor extravagance of luscious Crab Strata
Bangor Daily News - 12/12/2009.
By Sandy Oliver – The holiday season seems like a good time to be a little extravagant, and this recipe for Crab Strata is a pretty luscious one. I picked it up this summer in Stonington-Deer Isle from Caroline Rittenhouse who got it from the Stonington artist Michie Stovall O’Day.
Readfield: Residents warm to appeal for orchard
Kennebec Journal - 12/11/2009.
By Matthew Stone – Readfield: More than 30 people crowded into a newly opened cafe here Thursday night to learn the latest about a nonprofit group's efforts to preserve a local orchard. By the end of the 90-minute information session, some were opening up their checkbooks to lend support to the conservation effort.

Grist - 12/11/2009.

Now? 7 cents on the dollar goes to the producer and 73 cents goes just to distribution. That’s worth keeping in mind when you read things like this: " ... Wal-Mart, now the nation’s largest supermarket chain as well as retailer, has gotten into the local scene, embarking on an effort to procure more of its produce from local growers."

Bangor Daily News - 12/10/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Augusta: Legislators knew the state’s unique Dairy Stabilization Program – which is managed, but not funded, by the state and provides subsidies to Maine dairy farmers when the price of milk plummets – was in trouble early last year when dairy prices hit crisis levels. Their worst fears were realized when the program ran out of money in September.
