Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
MOO Milk documentary debuts in Maine at film festival
Portland Press Herald - 9/26/2012.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Milk is such a common, everyday food that few shoppers stop to contemplate it. If they do, they likely conjure images of rolling green pastures, classic red barns and softly lowing cows. But behind these made-for-TV scenes are the real dairy farmers who labor from before sunup to after sundown and can still find themselves faced with the decision of whether to buy grain for the herd or pay the electric bill for the barn.
Documentary about Maine farm families’ struggles to be shown across the state
Bangor Daily News - 9/26/2012.
Camden – “Betting The Farm,” a documentary film by Cecily Pingree and Jason Mann, follows three farm families as they risk everything to launch their new milk company – Maine’s Own Organic Milk. The film will kick off the 8th annual Camden International Film Festival with a screening 7 p.m. Thursday at the historic Camden Opera House.

New Maine Times - 9/25/2012.
By Gina Hamilton – Unity: The annual Common Ground Fair was held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, at the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association grounds here in Unity. As always, the fair featured Maine grown produce and crafts, politics and social awareness booths, livestock and pickles, homesteading and natural health practitioners, energy and sustainability, music and dance, organic gardening, homespun yarns and fabrics, and a lot of organic, locally sourced, no-GMO food.

A recent article from Reuters paints a frightening picture of the U.S. industrial agriculture system that has cows eating cookies and gummy worms, and farmers unable to afford the corn they have become dependent on for feeding the animals. With drought plaguing corn fields, prices for the scarce grain have skyrocketed, a fact that has been harshly felt by many cattle farmers, who are now unable to afford the corn for feed.
