"The soil is, as a matter of fact, full of live organisms. It is essential to conceive of it as something pulsating with life, not as a dead or inert mass."
- Albert Howard, The Soil and Health, 1947

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Peanut recall expands, horrifies lovers of organic peanutty snacks
Grist - 10/18/2012.
By Susie Cagle – Nearly three weeks after it first began, the nationwide recall on all manner of peanutty products has expanded dramatically – and it’s hitting the organic sector particularly hard. The recall now includes raw and processed nut goods produced over the last year by New Mexico company Sunland Inc., a big producer of conventional peanuts and the nation’s largest exporter of organic peanut stuffs.
‘Wheying’ in: cheesemaking as a profession
Bangor Daily News - 10/18/2012.
By Jenn Dobransky – Seven days a week, Allison Lakin makes these five distinct cheeses by hand. She is the owner and cheesemaker of Lakin’s Gorges Cheese LLC located in Rockport, Maine. Half the week, the days can be as long as 15 hours. But make no mistake about it; Lakin loves every minute of her work.
What saved this conventional farm?
Living Maxwell - 10/18/2012.
By Alberto Gonzalez – I recently attended the Organic Pioneer Awards at the Rodale Institute – an amazing event that recognizes people who make a difference in sustainable agriculture. Earlier that day, I visited an organic family farm in Kutztown, Pennsylvania, owned by James Burkholder. When I met James, his wife Ida, and his lovely family, I realized that I was in presence of a new organic leader.

Bangor Daily News - 10/18/2012.
By Mario Moretto – Sedgwick: Al and Mia Strong moved to Maine 13 years ago with a plan to fulfill their dream of opening a small brewery. Unfortunately, life got in the way. But now, they are turning to a tried-and-true agricultural model to get their nanobrewery off the ground. You’ve heard of community-supported agriculture? This is a community-supported brewery.
