2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster Unveiled

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show this week. 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.

Who Needs an Oven? Just Bury Your Beans
The New York Times - 11/26/2012.
By John Willoughby – One morning a couple of months ago, my friend and frequent co-author Chris Schlesinger called me. “You have to come look at my new bean hole,” he said. After he explained that he was talking about a classic method of outdoor cooking, I figured it was worth checking out.
