Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Forum cultivates a taste for trade
Bangor Daily News - 10/21/2009.
By Eric Russell – Bangor: Members of the Maine Grocers Association and the newly formed Maine Food Producers Alliance came together Tuesday to discuss how they can cooperate in marketing Maine food products. The first Maine Food Means Business event, held at Hollywood Slots Hotel & Raceway, was attended by about 150 people representing manufacturers, producers, distributors and retailers of food products made in Maine.
The good food revolution
The Boston Globe - 10/20/2009.
Op-Ed by Will Allen, founder and CEO of Growing Power, Milwaukee – Autumn has arrived in the Northeast. The leaves are turning colors, the days are getting shorter, and the weather has a hint of the chill to come. It’s a time of change in many ways. Our nation is grappling with the daunting challenges of health care and global warming. Another change is coming as well. It’s called the good food revolution. By bringing locally grown, organic, nutritiously rich food to a table near you, the good food revolution can help us tackle these larger societal issues, and benefit us all.
Title makes Gifford’s cream of the crop
Portland Press Herald - 10/19/2009.
By Doug Harlow – Skowhegan: I scream. You scream. We all scream for the world's best ice cream. Right? Well, locally owned and operated Gifford's Ice Cream is rising to the top nationally with a recent first-place showing in competition and the distinction of having the "World's Best Chocolate Ice Cream." Gifford's earned a perfect score in the World Dairy Expo 2009 contest last month in Madison, Wis.
Opportunity, just below the surface
Maine Sunday Telegram - 10/18/2009.
By John Richardson – Casco Bay: Tollef Olson and Paul Dobbins poke the roots of young kelp plants into a mesh sleeve. The brown seaweed hangs off the sleeve like boiled lasagna noodles as Dobbins lowers it into the cool water west of Chebeague Island. "These plants, by the spring, will be six to eight feet long," said Olson. It's planting time at what is believed to be the first kelp farm in the United States. In a few months, if all goes according to plan, the grown plants will be harvested, cut, cooked and turned into, well, kelp noodles. And kelp salad. And kelp slaw.
