Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine Maple Sunday – how sweet it is!
Portland Press Herald - 3/23/2009.
By Ann S. Kim – Maple syrup can be an addictive business. Just ask the makers and tasters who met up at Parsons Maple Products for Maine Maple Sunday. The Parsons family started making maple syrup in 1990 as a sideline to their dairy farm on Buck Street. Since then, they have set up a sugarhouse that's probably twice the size of the original and they've upgraded to larger evaporators four times.
The chemical in your baby's bottle
Boston Globe - 3/23/2009.
By Laura N. Vandenberg and Maricel V. Maffini - We live in a chemical stew. So pervasive are the chemicals in the food we eat, in the products we use to keep our bodies, clothes, and houses clean, and in keeping our lawns manicured that it has become impossible to avoid them. We are surrounded by chemicals. Over 80,000 are in use and an additional 1,000-2,000 are introduced each year; however, only about 2 percent are tested by regulatory agencies for safety.
Maple producers welcome Mainers into their sugarhouses and offer a taste of tradition
Kennebec Journal - 3/23/2009.
By Meghan V. Malloy and Scott Monroe – Old Fort Western came alive Sunday as families learned about the intricate process of making Maine maple syrup – as well as sampling the goodies that have syrup in them.
Wayne teen’s project growing toward fruition
Kennebec Journal - 3/23/2009.
By Matthew Stone – Wayne will become the latest Kennebec County town this summer to feature a farmers' market boasting fresh, locally grown produce straight from the source. A handful of Wayne-area farmers and growers are gearing up to sell their goods at the Wayne Farmers' Market, which will launch July 5. The venture will run each Sunday morning, likely wrapping up in September, according to organizer Emily Perkins. "I think that this'll definitely be a good place for people, not just from Wayne to come, but from the area," said Perkins, 17.
