Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
‘Let’s keep buying home-grown produce’
Kennebec Journal - 12/5/2009.
Letter to the Editor by Ellen Roberts – First of all I'd like to say, that I am not promoting any advertising of any specific products. I just want to say that I was born and raised in Maine, and am proud to say how good and tasty our home-grown products are.
