Breezy Hill Farm Update Jan. 29, 2017

  • The sausage effort turned out very well.  We were able to keep the price per pound to just $1.75.  We had more on our list than we got from the one hog.  We have moved those names to the next list.  An email was sent to those getting sausage, and I have posted under RECIPES on our website how to seasony your own sausage.  I saw the pork being ground at Gilbert's, and it looked really good.  
  • We just finished updating our website.  Added pictures and some new content.  Check it out, 
  • The ground beef animals are going in this week, and pick up will be Feb 18, at noon at the farm.  I think we will have enough for everyone on my list.  I'll know on Feb 15 the exact amount.  I will be sending out an email that week to get everyone to confirm that they can make that pick up date.  Again it is only $5/#.


Here is some more information on the dangers of GMOs.


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which was supposed to finish its 15-year review of glyphosate more than a year ago, and rule on whether to reregister it or ban it, is still twiddling its thumbs. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration won’t test foods for glyphosate residue. Meanwhile, in the EU, where the European Commission has also failed to act, citizens are taking matters into their own hands—by launching a European Citizens Initiative (ECI) inviting the Commission “to propose to Member States a ban on glyphosate, to reform the pesticide approval procedure, and to set EU-wide mandatory reduction targets for pesticide use.”

A new study published Monday in Scientific Reports, an online, open access journal from the publishers of Nature, has shown that the glyphosate-based Roundup herbicide causes non-alcoholic fatty liver disease in rats at very low doses.

The new peer-reviewed study led by Dr. Michael Antoniou at King’s College London using cutting edge profiling methods describes the molecular composition of the livers of female rats administered with an extremely low dose of Roundup weed-killer over a 2-year period. The dose of glyphosate from the Roundup administered was thousands of times below what is permitted by regulators worldwide. The study revealed that these animals suffered from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).


Nice you tube on agriculture
