Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
72,000 chickens perish in Belfast barn fire
Bangor Daily News - 1/29/2010.
By Abigail Curtis – Belfast: The city once known for its chickens lost 72,000 of them early Thursday morning in a fire that also consumed a three-story, 500-foot-long poultry barn on the Back Searsport Road. “Things happen, I guess,” said Merle Grass, the owner of the 1976 chicken barn and the last large-scale raiser in the area. “I probably won’t rebuild. The cost is going to be a lot more than my insurance is going to pay.”
Blueberries Morning, Noon and Night
The New York Times - 1/29/2010.
By Tara Parker-Pope – Frozen blueberries are one of the foods I wrote about in “The 11 Best Foods You Aren’t Eating.” These nutrient-rich fruits are available year-round and don’t spoil, and blueberries have been associated with better memory in animal studies. In this week’s Recipes for Health, Martha Rose Shulman expands on ways to add blueberries to your breakfast, lunch or dinner.
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.
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. The bill, which passed the House yesterday, prohibits junk food in public schools, and an amendment to the bill calls for research to be done on what local food is available and what schools are interested in.
