Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
New study compares prices at farmers’ markets and supermarkets. The results might surprise you
Politics of the Plate - 5/10/2011.
By Barry Estabrook – It’s getting harder and harder to be an elitist these days. We’re all familiar with the accepted gospel: Only well-heeled food snobs can afford the exorbitant prices charged for those attractively displayed baby greens and heirloom tomatoes at farmers’ markets, while those who can’t afford such greener-than-thou food-purchasing decisions must paw through limp broccoli, wilted lettuce, and tennis-ball tomatoes at supermarket produce departments.
U Maine extension gets land, barn and a view
Maine Sunday Telegram - 5/8/2011.
By Tom Atwell – The Cumberland County office of the University of Maine Extension now has 3 acres that it will be able to use to demonstrate growing techniques to backyard gardeners and professional farmers. The extension also is getting a barn that it can use as part of its animal husbandry programs.
Group envisions ‘food hub’ storefront
Kennebec Journal - 5/7/2011.
By Mechele Cooper – Gardiner: Sarah Miller stood under a tarp in the pouring rain Wednesday and handed out a survey and information about the Kennebec Local Food Initiative – a grassroots effort that could lead to the creation of a storefront "food hub" in Gardiner. The Initiative wants to open a market downtown where people can buy locally produced foods free of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and artificial ingredients and colors.
Parsnip cakes inspired by Kenneth Roberts are spring delight
Bangor Daily News - 5/5/2011.
By Sandy Oliver – It’s a little late for doing this sort of thing, but I just dug my parsnips. Another week and they’d not be fit for eating. I really wanted to retry a recipe from Marjorie Mosser’s “Good Maine Food” that Down East republished last fall. This cookbook was inspired by Maine historical novelist Kenneth Roberts’ sentimental and romantic Maine food traditions chapter in “Trending Into Maine.”
