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 available online through our MOFGA Store.

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 state of Maine’s cheeses and wines gets finer
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.
Clethra: Fragrant and so ... Not hydrangea
Portland Press Herald - 7/18/2010.
By Tom Atwell – Clethra is a superb shrub that has a lot going for it. It has attractive bottle-brush shaped blossoms, it can tolerate shade or sun, it likes moist soils, it attracts butterflies, it is native to Maine and it blooms in summer – July to September, depending on location and variety.
Nanotech in our food: should we be afraid?
Alternet - 7/18/2010.
By Marion Nestle – Nanotechnology involves the ability to control matter at the scale of a nanometer – one billionth of a meter. The world market for products that contain nanomaterials is expected to reach $2.6 trillion by 2015. So says a report from the Government Accountability Office. The effects of nanotechnology on the environment are regulated by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), which is why this report targets recommendations to EPA. Shouldn't some of those recommendations be directed toward FDA, the agency that regulates food safety?
