Breezy Hill Farm Update Jun 21, 2020

             BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • We have been delivering beef.  This week we should finish and be caught up.  We have some scheduled processing dates in November.  We have some ready now but processors are still booked through next year.  I'm hoping for a cancellation.

“Mr. Ozias, I used that tenderizer tonight on some steaks (also used kosher salt and sat in the fridge for a few hours) which I pan seared in avocado oil until they reached 130 internal temp, then rested them with a smidgen of avocado butter and those steaks were the greatest ever.  Those steaks had an amazing taste and texture, in a completely different league than the steaks at hyvee or price chopper.

Thanks Spencer.

Iowa has lost about half the topsoil it had in 1850. Since they were first plowed, America’s farmland soils have lost about half of their organic matter–the dark, spongy decomposed plant and animal tissue that helps make them fertile.

The soil that produces our nation’s food supply is a weakened link slowly failing under ongoing strain. This breakdown isn’t as dramatic as what happened in the 1930s during the Dust Bowl, but it is just as worrying. Human history holds many examples of once-thriving agricultural regions around the world where failure to maintain soil health degraded entire regions far below their potential agricultural productivity, impoverishing the descendants of those who wrecked their land.
