Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
The USDA looks at local food
Ethicurean - 6/10/2010.
By Marc R. aka Mental Masala – Every now and then, newspapers print an article that makes it seem like locavores are running the U.S. food system, throwing our weight around, causing Big Ag to cower in corners. If only we had even a small fraction of that power... In reality, the local food movement is a tiny piece of the nation's food economy – about 1 percent, according a new report from the USDA's Economic Research Service (ERS).
Farmers: late-blooming berries doing OK
Bangor Daily News - 6/10/2010.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Machias: Frost and freezing weather have taken their toll on some strawberry fields in Maine, but later-blooming varieties are doing very well, berry farmers reported this week. Some pick-your-own farms – such as Chipman Farm in Minot – already are open for limited picking, and most are expected to open next week.
Fast-growing plants
Energy Bulletin - 6/9/2010.
By Gene Logsdon – You’ve no doubt heard the old folktales about fast growing plants back in the early days when our virgin soils were supposedly so bountifully fertile. In one of them, a farm wife notices that a squash has formed on a vine in her new garden. Before she can pick it, a sudden rain falls, sending her inside for awhile. Later she goes back out to get the squash only to find that the vine, nourished by the rain, has already snaked out of the garden and is headed down the lane.
New café and bakery lets local food speak for itself
Portland Press Herald - 6/9/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – In a town that can't get enough of Maine-grown eats, the new Local Sprouts Cafe & Bomb Diggity Bakery is sure to garner numerous fans. Thanks to the efforts of more than 200 volunteers, the restaurant opened on Friday in the former University of Southern Maine dorm on Congress Street, and has been serving locally sourced breakfast, lunch and dinner every day since.
