Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Some worms’ waste is area businessman’s gold
Kennebec Journal - 4/15/2012.
By Mechele Cooper – Belgrade Lakes: Jonathan Dyer enjoys introducing visitors to the slithering creatures in his basement. The lower half of his Main Street home is brightly lit with an array of bins, wooden boxes and tubs filled with, well, poop. It's not just any poop – it's from the red wiggler. Dyer, the owner of Black Gold Vermiculture & Research, said a pound of wigglers – about 1,000 worms – can digest a half-pound of organic table scraps a day.
Garden season starts with ideas, ambition … and caution
Maine Sunday Telegram - 4/15/2012.
By Tom Atwell – This is the weekend that gardening season traditionally begins in Maine. If you plant your peas by Patriots Day, the saying goes, you will have them for the Fourth of July.

In the real world, however, I started outdoor gardening before the Ides of March.

Treehugger - 4/14/2012.

The FDA just enacted a new rule saying that farmers and ranchers will need a prescription from a veterinarian before using antibiotics on farm animals.

Small dairies create market for entrepeneurs
Bangor Daily News - 4/11/2012.
By Lisa Rathke (AP) – When Frank Kipe of Plainfield, Vermont, thought he would launch a business making ice cream, he found that he would have to pasteurize his milk. The necessary equipment was bulky and cost tens of thousands of dollars, so he built his own pasteurizer. Then he built more to sell. His pasteurizer business boomed, and the ice cream was forgotten.
