Abstract

The town of Turner's reputation was once tarnished by the giant DeCoster Egg farms, which has since broken into smaller operations, some of which have also been cited for violations. Now this town of 5,000, in prime farm country near Lewiston-Auburn, is becoming known for its picturesque buildings, orchards and farms, and its appeal to the commuter class. Although a spurt of development has put the squeeze on local farmers, the town, with its rich, river-fed soil, is still defined by agriculture.
