2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. The poster features three Columbian Wyandotte chickens roosting. This uncommon variety is well suited to Maine's climate and is raised for both meat and egg production. Local artist Dwight Gagnon of Benton created the design, which is a delightful and fitting image for the 41st annual Common Ground Country Fair, September 22, 23 and 24.
The poster is now available online through our MOFGA Store.

Berry growers assess tough new fungus
Bangor Daily News - 7/30/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Jonesboro, Maine: As blueberry growers filed out of a meeting at the University of Maine research center Wednesday night, one muttered under his breath, “This is going to be a nightmare.” He was talking about Valdensinia leaf spot, a fungus just now being found in Maine’s blueberry fields, and the steps growers must take to eradicate it. “If you see it, get rid of it,” Dr. Seanna Annis, a plant pathologist at the University of Maine, told more than 50 growers at the meeting. “Be vigilant. You may have to give up that area to save the rest of the field.”
