Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Open Farm Day offers lessons in living off land
Kennebec Journal - 7/27/2009.
By Matthew Stone – BELGRADE, Maine: Phillip Wentzel chose to visit Winterberry Farm with his wife on Sunday because of a family connection to farmer Mary Perry. For Perry, Maine's Open Farm Day was an opportunity to open her doors to the public and inspire. Perry joined more than 100 farmers across the state on Sunday, the 20th annual Open Farm Day, as they opened their farms to the public in the middle of a wet summer season that has delayed some crops and endangered others. Cool, wet weather has suffocated Perry's basil plants, she said, but not the community support for her organic farm. "I couldn't be self-sustaining without my community supporting us," Perry said.
Tide Mill Farms welcomes visitors
Bangor Daily News - 7/27/2009.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – EDMUNDS, Maine – Pauline Golicki sat at a picnic table just outside the milking barn at Tide Mill Farms on Sunday. The smells and sounds were familiar to her: the peep, peep of baby chickens, the call of a barn swallow as it whizzed overhead, the smell of cows and grass in the nearby pasture. Golicki, 85, said she grew up on a farm in New York and was happy to accompany her daughter and granddaughters to Open Farm Day.
Nature is the cure at County farm
Bangor Daily News - 7/27/2009.
By Julia Bayly – WADE, Maine: Natalia Bragg has six generations’ worth of herbal and natural healing lore burning a hole in her soul to get out. She shared a fraction of that knowledge Sunday with members of the public who visited her Knot-II-Bragg Farm as part of Maine’s Open Farm Day. “We farmers are disappearing,” Bragg said during a break in a tour of her lush herb gardens. “To keep us from disappearing we need to become evident.”
A roundup of pesticide drift coverage
Ethicurean - 7/26/2009.
Chemical standoff: Farm country residents mostly “grin and bear it” when pesticides from neighboring farms drift onto their property, but some are speaking out. In Illinois, a vineyard owner tires of watching clouds of 2,4-D engulf (and kill) his grapes when a nearby farm sprays. A retired minister gives up on raising Peregrine falcons after pesticide drift kills all of the embryos he’d bred. Another resident watches his two kids be hit with a poison cloud and is unable to get the spray company on the phone to determine what pesticide had been used.
