Mahon Talks to BDN About Farming Company’s Setback

John Mahon, University of Maine business professor, spoke to the Bangor Daily News about a Madison-based farm’s recent setback and how it can recover. Backyard Farms, which grows 27 million pounds of tomatoes a year, has begun to rip up its entire crop of plants to try to eradicate white flies, making the crops unavailable in stores until October. Mahon said no company would like to make that call but he believes Backyard Farms won’t suffer any long-term consequences from the setback.
