2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster Unveiled

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show this week. 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.

Theft in progress: Big Ag raids the treasury with help from Congress
Grist - 11/17/2011.
By Tom Laskawy – If the straight-up taxpayer swindle taking place in the supercommittee isn't making you angry, you're probably not paying attention. I'm talking about the attempt by agribusiness and a group of willing farm-state representatives to put billions of taxpayer dollars into the pockets of industrial farmers during the ongoing super committee Farm Bill negotiations.
Farm Bill: the view from the grassroots
Grist - 11/17/2011.
By Twilight Greenaway – The odds that most of us laypeople will have any opportunity to influence this year's Farm Bill process are looking awfully slim. Sure, there's still a chance the current, nearly opaque supercommittee process, and the piece of it now known as "the Secret Farm Bill," could break down. But it's also still very possible that the Farm Bill will be passed – if not in secret, now that the word is out, then at least through a process that will put a pane of thick, soundproof glass between us and our lawmakers.
Farmers market sales of raw milk endorsed
Portland Press Herald - 11/16/2011.
By Dennis Hoey – Portland: Farmers may be allowed to sell unpasteurized milk at the city's farmers markets, but they would be required to provide a consumer warning about the alleged dangers of drinking raw milk.
For cereal, natural may not be as natural as you think
Portland Press Herald - 11/16/2011.
By Avery Yale Kamila – The word "natural" is a favorite among food marketers. Unfortunately, the term is totally meaningless and, according to a recent report, often deceptive. The Cornucopia Institute, a nonprofit research organization focused on sustainable and organic farming, released a report last month titled "Cereal Crimes: How 'Natural' Claims Deceive Consumers and Undermine the Organic Label – A Look Down the Cereal and Granola Aisle."
