Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Accounting for increasing energy use by the US food system
Energy Bulletin - 5/26/2010.
By Michael Bomford – Energy used by the US food system accounted for 80% of the increase in American energy use between 1997 and 2002, according to a recent report from the USDA’s Economic Research Service.
Cutting on spring’s ‘hay’ days
Bangor Daily News - 5/25/2010.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Machias: The old adage “Make hay while the sun shines” is being practiced all over Maine this week as farmers cut hay early in an effort to avoid potential June rain which last year devastated hay quality. “We cut early last year too,” Brian Wright at The Wright Place in Clinton said Monday. “But still we were 50 percent off.” Wright said Monday was his fourth day of cutting hay this month.
Veterinarian blends alternative, conventional medicine at Palermo practice
Bangor Daily News - 5/24/2010.
By Lynn Ascrizzi – Ever since she was a child, Dr. Pamela Page, D.V.M., knew exactly what she wanted to be when she grew up. “I decided since the sixth grade. I think it was from reading James Herriot’s books,” she said, referring to best-sellers such as, “All Creatures Great and Small,” penned by the renowned veterinarian who practiced in rural Yorkshire, England. Today, she runs her small-animal practice, Holistic Veterinary Services, three days a week from a small clinic set up in a barn at Pagett Farm in Palermo. The USDA-inspected organic farm enterprise is owned and operated by Page and her husband, Donald Barrett, 55.
Are we on the brink of a New Deal for local economies?
Alternet - 5/24/2010.
By Stacy Mitchell – Let me begin by sharing some good news. Scattered here and there, in my country and in yours, the seeds of a new, more local, and more durable economy are taking root. Locally grown food has soared in popularity. There are now 5,274 active farmers markets in the United States. Remarkably, almost one of every two of these markets was started within the last decade. Food co-ops and neighborhood greengrocers are likewise on the rise.
