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.

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.
