Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Will Whole Foods’ new mobile slaughterhouses squeeze small farmers?
Grist - 11/23/2009.
By Tom Laskawy – Massachusetts poultry farmer Jennifer Hashley has a problem. From the moment she started raising pastured chickens outside Concord, Mass. in 2002, there was, as she put it “nowhere to go to get them processed.” While she had the option of slaughtering her chickens in her own backyard, Hashley knew that selling her chickens would be easier if she used a licensed slaughterhouse.
Twenty-five percent of US adult shoppers frequently buy organic food
Organic Consumers - 11/23/2009.
The report "Ethical Food and Beverage, Personal Care and Household Products in the U.S." states that despite the economic downturn of 2008-2009, ethical grocery products are continuing to make headway in the market, especially when contrasted with the relatively flat market for conventional groceries.
The fungus among us
Portland Press Herald - 11/22/2009.
By Tom Atwell – Greg Marley became fascinated with mushrooms as a teenager. He grew up in New Mexico but spent several summers in New York and Pennsylvania, where he discovered mushrooms. He serves as volunteer mushroom consultant to the New England Poison Control Center, publishes an Internet newsletter called Coastal Maine Mushrooming, is proprietor of a business called Mushrooms for Health, and lectures and writes about mushrooms.

Treehugger - 11/22/2009.
By Sami Grover – From its Organic Products Awards to debating whether air freighted produce can be organic, the UK's Soil Association has long been both an advocate for, and a pioneer of, organic foods. Now their Organic Farm School initiative is offering farmers, small holders and food enthusiasts alike the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of growing crops, rearing animals, and preparing food. I just wonder if it needs to feel so folksy.
