Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
‘Something silly’ hits Damariscotta
Bangor Daily News - 10/12/2009.
By Abigail Curtis – Damariscotta: Costumed people raced around Damariscotta Harbor on Sunday in giant pumpkins that were hollowed out and equipped with outboard motors. Two thousand people cheered them on from shore, clapping when they made it and clapping when they didn’t.

Bangor Daily News - 10/12/2009.
By Meg Haskell – Maxfield: The dairy goats at Olde Oak Farm seemed right at home Sunday, munching on pasture grass and hobnobbing with the curious visitors who came to stroke their floppy ears, giggle at their capricious ways and sample the many tasty cheeses made from their milk.
