Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Wiscasset farm to celebrate apple harvest
Portland Press Herald - 9/30/2009.
By Deborah Sayer – Morris Farm, a nonprofit agricultural education operation in Wiscasset, will celebrate apple harvest season Saturday by offering free cider-making and apple identification opportunities to the public. Community members are invited to bring in their own apples and containers to make homemade cider using the farm's old-fashioned, hand-cranked wooden apple press and learn about the origins of apples growing in their backyard.
One tasty partnership
Portland Press Herald - 9/30/2009.
By Meredith Goad – East Waterboro: Rich Boucher and Diane Knight of Alfred have become regulars at Raven Hill Orchard and Farm ever since they discovered its from-scratch baked goods last fall and began hanging out in the farm's cozy loft while sipping fresh-roasted coffee and playing board games for hours. On Sunday night, at a New England game dinner attended by 26 people, the couple raved about a brunch they'd had recently at the orchard.

Bangor Daily News - 9/30/2009.
By Christopher Cousins – Madison: A single greenhouse that covers 24 acres is so huge that it’s hard to fathom, but for Backyard Farms of Madison, it wasn’t big enough by a long shot.
Common Ground Country Fair draws quite a crowd
Village Soup - 9/29/2009.
By Holly S. Anderson – Unity: This year's Common Ground Country Fair weekend has come and gone, and for those who headed out early, the weather made for a fine time – at least during the first two days. Despite Sunday's drizzly weather, the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association reported Sept. 28 that 52,000 people flocked to the fair over the weekend, marking the third-highest attendance since the fair relocated to its permanent home in Unity.
