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
Egg producer says his business grew too quickly
The New York Times - 9/23/2010.
By Gardiner Harris – Washington: An Iowa egg producer at the center of a nationwide outbreak of salmonella apologized to a Congressional panel on Wednesday and acknowledged that his family operation had become “big quite awhile before we stopped acting like we were small.”
Common Ground Fair has uncommonly good eats
Portland Press Herald - 9/22/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Most commercial barbecue sauces come filled with preservatives, artificial colors and the dreaded high-fructose corn syrup. But the scratch-made barbecue sauce slathered on chicken and roast pork that the folks at Tide Mill Organic Farm will sell at this weekend's Common Ground Country Fair won't have any of those artificial ingredients.
At Deering Oaks farmers’ market, it’s a mob scene
Portland Press Herald - 9/22/2010.
By Meredith Goad – So have you been to the farmers' market lately? I'm talking about the Saturday market at Deering Oaks, the one that has become so successful (yay!) it's now become a little stressful (boo!) to squeeze through the throngs of humanity, dodging the long lines and the illegal bakers and the lookie-loos – the people who are there only to socialize and excessively fondle the produce without spending a dime.
County man in a pickle
Bangor Daily News - 9/22/2010.
By Julia Bayly – Easton: Mike Henderson is in a pickle, but the owner-operator of Maine’s only full time pickle processing plant wouldn’t have it any other way. For 15 years, Henderson and his wife Susan have procured, pickled and packed pretty much anything that doesn’t move at Mike’s Maine Pickles in their central Aroostook County facility.
