            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • We have some extra ground beef from the latest harvest.  Two people on my list have not responded, so their ground beef is available.  It's FIRST COME, GETS IT.  Pickup is here at the farm and they are 1 1/2 pound tubes.  At $5.50/lb a tube is $8.25.  Let me know.
  • My neighbor has now three lambs going to the processor soon.  Let me know if you're interested.
  • I am in the middle of Sacred Cow, Diana Rodgers and Robb Wolf.  There is a movie, same name and it will be available for a week.  Here is the information on how to register to watch the film.

American Grassfed Association has partnered with Diana Rodgers, the director and producer of Sacred Cow, to bring you a free screening of the film. You will be able to view Sacred Cow anytime between January 20th and 30th. After your screening, join a live Q&A panel on Thursday, January 28th from 7:00-8:15 PM ET featuring Diana Rodgers, Dr. John Ikerd, Greg Gunthorp, and Carrie Balkcom.

"At our grocery stores and dinner tables, even the most thoughtful consumers are overwhelmed by the number of considerations to weigh when choosing what to eat—especially when it comes to meat. Guided by the noble principle of least harm, many responsible citizens resolve the ethical, environmental and nutritional conundrum by quitting meat entirely. But can a healthy, resilient and conscientious food system exist without animals?

 

Sacred Cow probes the fundamental moral, environmental and nutritional quandaries we face in raising and eating animals. In this project, we focus our lens on the largest and perhaps most maligned of farmed animals, the cow."

  • I finished Tom Philpott's latest book, Perilous Bounty.  As usual, Philpott does a great job.  It details what is happening in California with fruits, vegetables and NUTS.  The limiting factor, water.  You will want to build a raised bed and order your seeds for this coming Spring.  Remember, last Spring the seed companies ran short on filling orders due to the uptick in demand.  The other part of the book deals with the midwest, mostly Iowa.  Here the focus is on protein, beef, pork and chickens.  The limiting factor here is soil and the increased necessity for chemicals to make the monoculture of corn and soybeans work.

Hi – I'm reading "Perilous Bounty: The Looming Collapse of American Farming and How We Can Prevent It" by Tom Philpott and wanted to share this quote with you.

"Whatever your politics, there are activities your tax money supports that I’m sure you find troublesome, if not deplorable. But you can’t do anything about those activities—you can’t withdraw your support—unless you’re prepared to go to jail. Food is different. You can simply stop participating in a system that abuses animals or poisons the water or squanders jet fuel flying asparagus around the world. You can vote with "your fork, and you can do it three times a day. Everyday."
