Ticket prices at the gates are increasing to help support improved services and higher operation costs. You may still buy Advance Tickets at any of the OUTLETS LISTED HERE up until Fair time.

Our Store is now closed except for memberships, donations and registrations for events and workshops so that we may focus on getting our new inventory ready for the Country Store on the fairgrounds. 2014 Fair T-shirts, tote bags, aprons and more will be available online by October 1.

 

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The monarchs were missing this summer ... and we and weather were to blame
PRI - 9/30/2013.
By David Sherwood - Swan Island, in Maine's Kennebec River, is the perfect summer home for the monarch butterfly. But this year, no monarchs. Monarch butterflies have nearly disappeared from much of their range this year.
A Disease Cuts Corn Yields
The New York Times - 9/30/2013.
By Stephanie Strom - A disease called Goss’s wilt is spreading in Midwestern corn. Culprits could be genetically engineered corn, lack of rotation or bacteria-harboring residue left on the field in no-till farming.

ensia - 9/30/2013.
By Margaret Buranen - Landscaping can do more than increase property values. It can reduce energy use and clean air and water while providing wildlife habitat and connecting people to nature.
Where Farmers Markets and CSAs Fall Short
In These Times - 9/30/2013.
By John Collins - Everything we eat has a story behind it. The bread aisle (at the store with the massive parking lot) is a thrill ride. That story starts on stretches of land in places you’ve never been. Its main characters are gene-splicing scientists, patented life forms and huge industrial robots. Fleets of 18-wheelers make epic road trips before the narrative climaxes in the cash register of one mega-corporation or another. By comparison, the story of sustainably raised, locally marketed food is a bucolic tale: a hop from farm to table.
