2017 Poster for the Common Ground Country Fair

2017 Common Ground Country Fair Poster!

The 2017 Common Ground Country Fair poster was unveiled during the Maine Agricultural Trades Show in January. 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.

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Study: Harmful additives found in canned food
Bangor Daily News - 5/20/2010.
By Meg Haskell – Environmental health advocates in Maine released a new national study earlier this week showing that canned foods and beverages absorb potentially dangerous amounts of bisphenol A, or BPA, from the cans’ epoxy lining.
Spring crops up with a bounty of its own
Portland Press Herald - 5/19/2010.
By Anne Mahle – Spring is a time when many of us are dreaming of those big beautiful tomatoes we are hoping will arrive in mid- to late August. But while you are dreaming of the future, don't forget the present. There's still plenty of bounty to be had early in the season with asparagus, spinach, pea shoots, lettuce, kale, chard, bok choy, baby greens, rhubarb and maybe little snippings from those herbs you seeded indoors.
Food + Farm film festival includes Maine-made shorts
Portland Press Herald - 5/19/2010.
By Avery Yale Kamila – Portland: Now entering its third year, the popular Food + Farm film festival and local food celebration kicks off Thursday and runs through Sunday. It will showcase four feature-length documentaries, screen four Maine-produced shorts and offer a chance to get your hands dirty on an urban farm.
A Beard award, finally!
Portland Press Herald - 5/19/2010.
By Meredith Goad – Ogunquit: Three days after winning the James Beard Foundation's award for Best Chef in the Northeast, Clark Frasier and Mark Gaier sat down in their dining room at Arrows to talk about what it felt like to win, at last. Outside, their famed gardens were greening up nicely for the growing season. Tulip beds provided a splash of color, and the wisteria over the doorway to the 18th-century post-and-beam farmhouse-turned-restaurant was in luscious bloom.
