Online ticket sales for the 2014 Common Ground Country Fair are CLOSED.

Ticket prices at the gates are increasing to help support improved services and higher operation costs. You may still buy Advance Tickets at any of the OUTLETS LISTED HERE up until Fair time.

Our Store is now closed except for memberships, donations and registrations for events and workshops so that we may focus on getting our new inventory ready for the Country Store on the fairgrounds. 2014 Fair T-shirts, tote bags, aprons and more will be available online by October 1.

 

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Risk, bacteria, and the tragedy of food-safety reform (updated)
Grist - 11/29/2010.
By Tom Philpott – After all the back-and-forth in our recent – and, if I may say, extremely informative – Food Fight debate on S. 510, I hold to the same opinion I expressed at first: that S. 510 represents a small step in the right direction, so long as it doesn't crush the alternative food systems that are emerging to challenge Big Food.
Wikileaks: State Department wants intel on African acceptance of GMOs
Grist - 11/29/2010.
By Tom Laskawy – The Wikileaks release of U.S. State Department classified diplomatic cables may be problematic, but it has been quite a trove of information on the workings of our diplomatic corps. For the most part, the dump has confirmed things that we already knew about U.S. policy – and that seems to be the case regarding the one mention of agricultural policy in these thousands of emails and documents to which I was alerted.
Odor improving at HerbKomp facility
Kennebec Journal - 11/28/2010.
Clinton – A stinky problem that had become a public nuisance is now being fixed at the HerbKomp facility on Route 100, state officials say. Most of the smelly odors had been created at the composting operation by seafood – shellfish parts, animal bones and lobster-claw rubber bands – that had been scattered around and not properly covered, according to inspections by the state Department of Agriculture.
‘There is food all over the place’
Maine Sunday Telegram - 11/28/2010.
By Beth Quimby – Farmer Denis Thoet has packed his root cellar with beets, potatoes and carrots and filled a storage room in his house with garlic, onions and squash. His freezer is stuffed with the leftovers from the food he grows for 69 households that each bought a share of this year's harvest.
