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.

Cleanup of Gulf of Maine will require 5 years, $3 billion
Portland Press Herald - 12/9/2010.
AP – Portland: At least $3 billion is needed over five years to restore the environmental health of the Gulf of Maine, according to a new report described as the most comprehensive ecological needs assessment ever done for the gulf.
Forget summer: why Maine is a year-round culinary hotbed
Huffington Post - 12/9/2010.
By Marie Elena Martinez – The state of Maine has long been considered a summer destination. Portland author Michael Sanders and photographer Russell French refute that theory by transporting readers from an old post road inn in Kittery to a renovated textile mill in rough and tumble Lewiston and a sleek Scandinavian-design bistro in blue-collar Bath.
Pickled kelp the latest sea food from local growers
Portland Press Herald - 12/8/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – After garnering rave reviews at this fall's 20 Mile Meal and Harvest on the Harbor foodie events, Dilly Kelp Pickles can now be found in the refrigerated sections of local stores. The newest product from Portland-based Ocean Approved features the company's kelp noodles in a dill-infused vinegar brine.
Who can go the longest without feeding hay?
Energy Bulletin - 12/8/2010.
By Gene Logsdon – A game that pasture farmers like to play is seeing how long they can keep their livestock grazing in winter without feeding any hay or grain. I have a feeling that if cows and sheep had the right of suffrage, they would vote this sport off the farm. They would rather loll in the barn in winter chewing on good clover hay than nosing under two inches of snow for half-frozen fescue.
