Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Organic dairy farms being crushed by factory operations
The Capital Times (Madison, WI) - 1/29/2010.
By Mark Kastel – Family farmers who produce organic milk are petitioning for the swift adoption of new strict rule-making that would rein in the abuses of a handful of factory farms, which are violating both the spirit and letter of the federal organic law.
Organic farming boosts farmers markets
ABC News [Australia] - 1/29/2010.
By Simon Santow – In the rich soils of Byron Bay, farmer Alisdair Smithsom grows seasonal fruit and vegetables for local markets, and is helping to grow the local economy at the same time. Farmhand Beck was unemployed when she moved to the area, and found the best way to eat organic food was to volunteer on an organic farm for one day a week in exchange for a box of vegies. "A year and a half later, I'm living on the farm, working on the farm, and it's fantastic," she said.
Bill encourages schools to buy food from local farms
MetroWest Daily News - 1/29/2010.
By Laura Krantz – Boston: A bill making its way through the Legislature would try to make it easier for farmers in Massachusetts to sell their fresh produce to the area's schools.

In this week’s Recipes for Health, Martha Rose Shulman expands on ways to add blueberries to your breakfast, lunch or dinner.
