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.

Bring your waders to Open Farm Day
Kennebec Journal - 7/23/2009.
By Mechele Cooper – Farmers participating in Open Farm Day on Sunday said visitors should wear hip boots. Their pastures and gardens are a little soggy with all the rain this past month. "So far, we're holding up pretty well," said Denis Thoet of Long Meadow Farm in West Gardiner. "It's a little bit muddy, so we're asking people to wear appropriate footwear like hip boots. "We'll be doing some traditional music and mini tours of the farm and talk about what we're doing here."
