Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine dairy farmers getting trickle of temporary relief
Portland Press Herald - 1/30/2013.
By Kevin Miller - Washington: The USDA says it plans to pay Maine dairy farmers 59 cents per hundred-weight for milk produced in September. The additional payments were welcome news to Maine's struggling dairy farmers, but several people in the industry said much larger reforms are needed.

Video: Restoring the mill at Freedom Falls has become a labor of love Tony Grassi of Camden. He bought the run-down building and successfully had it placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Biochar cookstoves help counter this problem and create a soil amendment that holds carbon in the soil, improves water-holding capacity and adds nutrients. They also use less wood to cook a given amount of food. One researcher is even drying an invasive plant - water hyacinth - and burning it in biochar cookstoves.
