"Perhaps the most radical thing you can do in our time is to start turning over the soil, loosening it up for the crops to settle in, and then stay home and tend them."

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Eastport cleared to ship livestock
Bangor Daily News - 7/18/2010.
By Sharon Kiley Mack – Eastport: “This is going to be my first rodeo,” Roland “Skip” Rogers said Friday as he readied the port of Eastport to transfer 500 dairy cows into climate-controlled transport containers for shipment to Turkey.

The Boston Globe - 7/18/2010.
By Nancy Heiser – Scarborough: The moment I taste a wedge of Deb Hahn’s Noble Hill Reserve at the waterfront farmer’s market in Bath, I am smitten. It’s nutty, smooth, caramel-y, with a slight graininess at the finish. Is it something in the local cows’ milk, the salty air, or the maker’s finesse that makes this cheese so outstanding? It’s time to research some local cheeses, with a few stops along the Maine Wine Trail for good measure.
