Breezy Hill Farm Update Dec. 1, 2019

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • What a wonderful turkey we had for our Thanksgiving dinner.  Thanks Virginia.
  • Just found out today in KC Star that, as of Dec 18,  Terra is moving to a new location on Douglas Road in Lee's Summit.  Sure hope they still have bulk grains.  They are our source for hard winter wheat berries.  No wheat. no homemade bread.
  • We had a beef customer come and get some KEFIR grains.  Seems he had company visiting, and they didn't know what they were, and down the drain they went.  KEFIR sure makes great pancakes.
  • Does anyone know "time2plant76"?  Can't seem to make contact and they have a beef order.

Trans Fats Linked to Increased Risk for Alzheimer’s

The rise of trans fat can be directly attributed to the wrongful vilification of saturated fats and cholesterol. We now have decades’ worth of data showing saturated fat and dietary cholesterol have no impact on heart disease and mortality. Meanwhile, studies have revealed the switch from saturated fat to trans fat-rich partially hydrogenated vegetable oils have led to the premature death of millions. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2019/11/07/trans-fats-and-alzheimers.aspx?utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1HL&utm_campaign=20191107Z1&et_cid=DM383495&et_rid=745064218

Stop the Insanity 

In an email, a farmer in Iowa told us that if he were able to attend the November 9 Climate Summit in Des Moines, Iowa, he’d want to ask the audience this:

“Could it possibly make sense that we have farmers contemplating suicide because of low commodity prices, while agribusiness consortiums are tearing out the Amazon rainforest to grow even more of these commodities and make them cheaper?”

If we lived in a world where sanity prevailed, the answer would be obvious.

But today’s industrial agribusiness fails the sanity test, on almost every level.

Consumers can, and must, help change the system by supporting organic regenerative farmers and boycotting industrial grain, meat, poultry and dairy products.

But consumers can’t do it alone. And farmers can’t change the system alone, either.

It’s time for a massive overhaul of U.S. food and farming policies. We can’t just “tweak” Farm Bill policy here and there and expect to see large-scale policy reform.

The farmer who wrote this email is a member of the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers for a Green New Deal coalition, a joint project of OCA, Regeneration International and the Sunrise Movement.

The coalition’s goal? Unite farmers and consumers around the call for a massive overhaul of U.S. ag policy.

It’s time for policymakers to support the farmers and ranchers who give back to their communities by growing healthy food while also being good stewards of the land—instead of allowing agribusiness lobbyists to write policies that let the big polluters and rainforest-destroyers and animal-abusers and resource-extrators and producers of pesticide- and drug-contaminated “cheap” food.

But just because it's time, just because it's obviously the only sane thing to do, doesn't mean it will happen.

We have to work at it. We have to all get involved.

Why You Should Avoid Vegetable Oils

I'm surprised she didn't recommend Lard. Unprocessed lard is hard to find. Store lard has a preservative added. Gilbert's don't add anything. So, when you get a Dirt Hog always ask for the tub of lard and be sure to get the hocks. We have a great way to cook hocks.
