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.

Farmed salmon diet fattens mice
Environmental Health News - 10/20/2011.

A study with mice provides more evidence that a diet high in farmed salmon contaminated by persistent organic pollutants - POPs - contributes to weight gain and increases the risk of diabetes.

More wild mushrooms=bounty, danger
Kennebec Journal - 10/19/2011.
Portland – The tropical storms that drenched the Northeast this year left an unexpected bounty: Thousands of mushrooms have sprung up on some lawns, and foragers have filled bags with wild ones plucked from the earth, stumps and logs. "It was like a scene from 'Alice and Wonderland,'" said David Fischer, who wrote "Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America."
Wild crops abound to harvest, put up as we fall toward winter
Kennebec Journal - 10/19/2011.
Op-Ed by George Smith – Warblers arrive in the spring garbed in colorful clothing, but they head back south in the fall dressed in drab colors. There's got to be a message there, but those of us who don't follow the birds south are too busy getting ready for winter to recognize it.
