Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Plenty of fish in the sea
Portland Press Herald - 9/17/2011.
By Beth Quimby – Customers have had different reactions to the appearance of redfish on The Salt Exchange's menu. One raised his eyebrows and wondered aloud why the upscale Commercial Street eatery would feature something used as fish bait, owner Charles Bryon said. Another customer said he had grown up with redfish and was happy to see it.
The old becomes new again as farms return to human laborers
Kennebec Journal - 9/16/2011.
By Denis Thoet – Since we are a human-powered farm, I thought it might be interesting to consider what that means in relation to other tractor- and horse-powered farm operations. So I checked Wikipedia to get an idea of what human power is compared to a standard measurement like horsepower. It turns out that a "healthy human can produce 1.2 horsepower briefly and can sustain 0.1 horsepower indefinitely." That means that our four apprentices, plus me, can turn out between 0.5 hp all day long or 5 hp in rapid bursts during the day. Pretty impressive.

To every dish there is a season
Kennebec Journal - 9/14/2011.
By Emily Burnham – Kathy Gunst’s new cookbook, “Notes From a Maine Kitchen: Seasonally Inspired Recipes,” is her love letter to her adopted home state, and to the kitchens all across the state that produce the food synonymous with Maine. After writing 14 cookbooks and living and working as a food writer in Maine for nearly 30 years, Gunst calls “Notes From a Maine Kitchen” her favorite book yet.
