Limiting antibiotics for cows may create a new dairy market
Concerned about antibiotic use in animal production? Look for U.S. Department of Agriculture certified organic milk products! Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) is the local inspector that ensures producers are following the rules and provides high confidence for consumers for truth in labeling.
There already exists a federally managed program that reduces antibiotic use to 0% in production- it’s called the NOP. National Organic Plan. It covers all animal agriculture as well as vegetable production, food processing etc. Why create another program with overhead costs?
Limiting antibiotics for cows may create a new dairy market ITHACA, N.Y. -- Consumers would be willing to buy milk from cows only treated with antibiotics when medically necessary – as long as the price...

Farm jobs, one more done! Last week we set a concrete pad for composting behind the barn- no more muddy space!
Next up is firewood!
We are slowly checking off things on the fall ‘To-Do list’. Here’s a bowl of chicken soup that was 3 months in the making- we processed our chickens on Friday. There are two pressure cookers of canned chicken on the stove now, and about 30-40 more lbs that still need to be done over the next couple days.
Doug gathered up the firewood logs today, so now there is a giant pile in the drive way. That’s what he’ll be working on the next couple days.
There are some rainy days ahead this week- corn chowder with Balfour Farm bacon is just the dish to make you feel warm and cozy.
Pick up some bacon tomorrow from Doug at the Portland Maine Farmers' Market. We are in the park until Nov 23, Sat and Wed. In November, market is opening at 8 am to avoid the cold early morning temps for all the veggies.
Yes, Olivia made yogurt this week! We will also have Buttermilk, eggs and cheeses!!

We waited and waited for the rain to pass before setting up for the Common Ground Country Fair, and we’re blessed with clearing skies and a rainbow. Good omens for a fantastic fair this weekend!
We have been hoarding cheese all summer in anticipation of this event. It is our most favorite time of the year, and we have missed it so much!! We are looking forward to spreading the love of Maine cheese to all 60,000+ people that attend, visiting with farmer friends we haven’t seen in ages, and just feeling like a normal year.
We will not be at the Portland Farmers market on Saturday- you can find us at the fair in the Rose Gate Farmers Market Fri, Sat and Sun.

A diversion for a rainy afternoon- we took Lou Brown and Brown on a ride up to Monson and visited with our friends Tim and Joy for a bit at their Turning Page Farm. They have a really great little goat farm and brewery experience. We had some farm raised sausage sandwiches and fresh beer while we chatted about farm stuff and admired their Golden Guernsey Goats.
On our way to Turning Page, we stumbled across a very new dairy- Dairy Farm. They make raw butter and bottle raw milk from their 8 Jersey cows. Kyle was kind enough to stop and chat with us for a bit. He’s an enthusiastic young man and has set up a beautiful small scale dairy.
Yogurt is back at market this week!!!
This is is what happens when you send the farmer to get stamps...
