Know Your Organic Producers!

Joel and Annalisa Wild Miller of Wild Miller Farm in Palermo raise MOFGA-certified organic produce and hay, which they sell through their farm stand/credit-system CSA, wholesale accounts and at the Common Ground Country Fair. They farm with draft horses and say, "We believe that carefully executed and ecologically sound farming is an art, something we constantly strive for. Also that farming with draft animals is a craft, one that we try to improve upon every day." They are also raising their two young children on the farm. For more information, please visit

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Leaders look to retain rural character
Kennebec Journal - 7/12/2010.
China, Maine: The leaders assembled Thursday in the Town Office to plan an effort to preserve the former French farm on Vassalboro Road as agricultural land. Now, they need more followers. The idea is to help preserve China's rural character – a goal frequently mentioned during comprehensive planning discussions – and slow the rate of property tax increases.

Bangor Daily News - 7/12/2010.
Op-ed by Emily Horton – Recently, I attended the premiere of the documentary, “Meet Your Farmer” at the Strand Theatre in Rockland.

A humane egg
The New York Times - 7/11/2010.
