            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • Looks like warmer weather is here.  Grass is starting to wake up.  We will be sorting out the cows due to start calving about Mar. 15.  We will be weighing some of the beeves this week.  We will then schedule with the processor.  If you are on the list for freezer beef, we will be starting soon.
  • We still have some lard and a few marrow bones.  Also we have a few rib roasts.
  • Virginia is having her first chicken day, May 12.  If you are wanting free range fryers, email her,  souscon4@gmail.com.  She also has two fat lambs.
  • I am including a link to an article about grass finished beef and an embedded link about CAFO's.  I know some locals are concerned about a CAFO in Johnson County. We believe in "eating what's local" ( but not from CAFOs) and vote with our dollars accordingly.
  • We made a decision when we began our grass finished beef business; our price per pound would track very closely with the price of beef at our local grocery store.  The only difference would be that you have to have a freezer and buy  a quarter, half or whole.  So, you will pay the same amount, just have to buy it all at one time.

Why Conventional Meat Is Bad for You

Many so-called experts continue to suggest meat production — especially beef — contributes to environmental destruction. Therefore, the logic follows, if you give up eating meat from farm animals, you will help reduce your carbon footprint.

As Williams, Savory and others attest, the reality is not all meat production is the same, especially when it comes to beef. While all cows begin their lives foraging for grass on open pasture, about 97 percent of U.S. cattle spend their last days in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), where they are fattened with grain prior to slaughter.

This system of using CAFOs, which are hotbeds for disease and antibiotic misuse, is energy-intensive and responsible for the high carbon emissions normally associated with livestock operations. If you need more convincing about the dangers of CAFOS, also known as factory farms, check out my “The Truth About Factory Farms” infographic.

Of particular cause for alarm is the long-standing practice CAFOs have of feeding low doses of antibiotics to farm animals, which enables pathogens to survive, adapt and eventually thrive. The reality that nearly 80 percent of antibiotics administered in the U.S. go into farm animals should give you a sense of why CAFOs are becoming increasingly more well-known for their role in spreading deadly antibiotic-resistant disease.

Here is link for entire article, Why This Meat Is so Healthy

Grass fed meat is the healthiest and safest meat you can consume, and sales of it continue to rise.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • We just had over 3 inches of rain.  Some freezing rain, but not serious.  We were just of the edge of significant ice.  It was the first time this Winter that we have had mud while feeding hay.  It's much better with the ground frozen.  Just think if that three inches had been in a solid state we would have had 30 inches of snow.  I'll take the mud over that much snow.  Looks like this week will be mid-fifties.  
  • Trees are pushing buds.  This will be my week to start pruning fruit trees.  I'll cut a few scions and graft some.  I'm going to graft some stone fruits this year.
  • Remember, the KC Food Circle EXPO is Mar 31 at JCCC.  Check it out at their website.
  • The next ground beef list is filling fast.  Have two already on the next dirt hog list.

  • First time ever we had to postpone the ground beef pickup.  The weather was just too questionable.  We have rescheduled for this next Saturday at 12 noon.  I will send an email on Wednesday for all to re verify they can be here for the pickup.  I need to know how many pounds to pick up.
  • I have no names on the Dirt Hog list so if I have missed your email, let me know.
  • The KC Food Circle EXPO will be on Mar 31 at the Johnson County Community College.  See you there.

When you see “organic” on a label, it’s still necessary to do your due diligence to ensure the product is truly produced with the highest organic standards. The Organic Trade Association and the hydroponic lobby, led by the Coalition for Sustainable Organics, are seeking to rewrite organic rules to include hydroponics, which are plants grown in a liquid medium without soil.  USDA just recently succumbed and now hydroponics can be labeled Organic.

 USDA organic regulations require that your crop rotation plan maintains or improves soil organic matter.  How is it possible for hydroponics to meet this requirement?? 

Hydroponics do not involve the use of soil.  They should not qualify for organic certification, yet operators  have been certified organic by USDA accredited certification agencies, which is deceitful to the public. Hydroponics also use chemicals, which organic producers are barred from using.

Worse, commercial hydroponic growers will rarely reveal the fertilizers they use. Further, keep in mind that while growing food indoors does reduce the need for pesticides, it does not automatically mean hydroponic vegetables are pesticide-free. In addition, at least one study found hydroponically grown vegetables had lower levels of carotenoids such as beta-carotene and lutein than conventional vegetables. 

 Cows produce more milk, faster, when they’re fed grain in the barn, as opposed to grazing on grass on pasture.

Industrialized organic dairies are capitalizing on this by skimping on grazing time, raising thousands of cows in veritable CAFOs, yet still gaining the USDA organic label that suggests a superior product.

Fortunately, the American Grassfed Association (AGA) recently introduced much-needed grass fed standards and certification for American-grown Further, if you buy organic dairy, you should know that not all organic brands are created equal.

While some are offering truly superior milk that comes from grass fed cows raised on pasture, others are passing off industrially produced milk as organic — and pocketing the increased profits I would strongly advise you to ensure your dairy is AGA certified as grass fed. Getting your raw milk from a local organic grass fed farm or co-op is best, but if you’re considering milk from another source, check out Cornucopia’s Organic Dairy Scorecard, which can help you make informed purchasing decisions.27

  • We still have a couple of tubs of lard.
  • My beef price marker at local grocery store has settled back to $5.19/#.  That is about a 5% increase over last year.  I will keep tracking that until 1 April, then decide on this years price.  Requests prior to 1 Apr will be guaranteed at last years price.
  • Ground beef pick up will be next Saturday at 12 noon.  I am pretty sure I have more requests than I can fill.  I will know exactly this Wednesday, and will be notifying those on the list.  If you are on the list, BE WATCHING FOR THE EMAIL.  Since I probably won't have enough for everyone, if you don't respond within 24 hours, I will go to the next person on the list.  If you miss on this one, I will carry over your request to the next harvest.
  • The price is still $5.25/# for the ground beef and $6/# for the roasts.  We will have a few chuck roasts and rib roasts.

  • If you have access to the BBC, the second edition of the Blue Planet II will be broadcast this evening.  If it is like Blue Planet, it will be an excellent program.
  • I just finished, Eat Bacon, Don't Jog, by Grant Pettersen.  It is an excellent book.  The information is broken into easy to read and understand segments.  Each segment is at most two pages, most are just one page.  It gets a two thumbs up!!
  • I am enclosing information on grass finished beef. Most of you know most of this information, but we have several new people now included in our weekly UPDATES.
  • Our ground beef list is nearing completion.  I will be scheduling that pick up soon.
  • I am now caught up on the Dirt Hog list.  At least, I think I'm caught up.  If you requested a hog, I must have lost your request.  If I did, resend your request.

Without soil, there is no food. And soil stripped of its organic, microbial life produces food stripped of the nutrients and microbes we require for good health.

Today is World Soil Day. A good day to recall the wisdom of Franklin D. Roosevelt:

“The Nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself.”

For decades, we’ve been on the wrong path when it comes to caring for the soil. According to a recent report, the UK is only 30-40 years away from the “total eradication of soil fertility.”

That warning is even more dire that the United Nations’ prediction of just 60 years of farming left, unless we do something to restore the world’s soils.

Closer to home? A recent article on GreenBiz.com put it this way:

“To the extent that America’s agricultural soil is a national treasure — and a buried treasure at that — industrial ag has been squandering it for decades.”

The article notes that 96 percent of North America’s soil erosion comes from our current methods of food production.

  • I have a couple of tubs of pure lard.  They are $6 per tub.  There are no additives like lard sold in the grocery store.
  • We have two chuck roasts and two rib roasts.  They are $6/lb.  They will weigh around 3 pounds.   If you buy a rib roast, I will send you a great recipe.
  • Also, we have bones, marrow bones.  They are $3/lb.
  • Oh yes, we have cracklins from the last lard processing.  They are a great additive for cornbread.

  • "Lord Byron wasn’t just a poet; the “Don Juan” author was also the inspiration for one of the earliest celebrity dieting fads. Legions of aspiring Romantics in the 1800s subsisted on a Vinegar and Water Diet, drinking water mixed with apple cider vinegar before each meal to maintain a chic gaunt look."  Thanks Jack B. for sending the above.  He was alerted to this after reading one of our recent UPDATES with a Dr. Berg video on Apple Cider Vinegar.  Isn't it amazing what we are relearning from wisdom from the 1880's??
  • I was at the local grocery store this past week, and noticed the price for their ground beef had jumped to $5.99.  We use their price as a benchmark for setting our freezer beef prices.  Last year their price was $4.99, and our hanging weight price was $4.00/lb.  Their price in December was $5.19.  That was a 4% increase.  This $5.99 represents another 15%.  We are, for now, holding our price at last year's  $4/lb.  I will be monitoring this for the next three months, and may have to adjust our pricing.  All requests prior to April 1 will be at last years price.

    Chuck Norris Focuses Attention on Heavy Metal Risks After Enhanced MRI

    After undergoing three MRIs with GBCAs to evaluate her rheumatoid arthritis, Gena O'Kelley, the wife of American film icon Chuck Norris, began experiencing severe physical symptoms that began with a burning sensation in her skin. She described it as if there was acid burning her skin, slowly covering her body. She reports that she visited the emergency room five or six nights in a row, while doctors ran multiple tests for ALS, MS, cancer and Parkinson's disease.

    However, it was O'Kelley who made the connection between her burning skin, contracted arm and cognitive issues and the multiple MRIs she had undergone. She told Full Measure:

    "When we got to the hospital in Houston this last time, and I'm so bad and I said, listen, I am sober enough in my thinking right now, because I had such brain issues going on, I said I'm only going to be able to tell you this one time and I need you to listen to me very closely. I have been poisoned with gadolinium or by gadolinium and we don't have much time to figure out how to get this out of my body or I am going to die."

    After five months of treatment in China and then in a clinic in Nevada, O'Kelley was able to return home to her seven children for continued treatment by a physician in Houston. Norris shared their tax return records documenting $2 million over three years in uninsured medical expenses to help O'Kelley return to health. Now Norris is suing 11 medical companies for the part they played in not warning the couple and others of the dangers of using a GBCA for MRI contrast.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Thanks to all our Breezy Hill customers and friends.  Last year was a very good year to raise and "harvest" GRASS.  Adequate rains and only a short period of hot weather.  Animals loved it.
  • Debra and I made it to that magic 50 year plateau  today.  My how time flies by, and it gives one pause to think of all the many people with whom we have crossed paths.  
  • I am including a video of Dr Lustig with his presentation of his latest book, The Hacking of the American Mind.  I mentioned sometime back, that I had finished the book and recommended it.  This is much faster, an hour and twenty-three minutes, and he covers all the main points.  After watching you may want to read the entire book for further details.  You may also want to forward the link to someone you know who is facing a health issue/challenge.  It's time to start practicing the FOUR C'S, CONNECT, CONTRIBUTE, COPE, AND COOK!!
  • Also, I'm including Alan Guebert latest blog.  A subscription for his weekly blog would make a nice gift for someone.

This Christmas column, first published in 1994, remains the most-requested column I’ve ever written. Maybe that’s because its lesson is both timely and timeless or perhaps it’s just a warm tale well told. Whatever the reason, I hope you, too, receive Howard’s Priceless Gift of Simple Giving. Merry Christmas.  --AG        

The Christmas tree was a scrub cedar hacked from the edge of the woods that bordered our farm. Big-bulbed lights, strung in barber pole fashion, generated almost as much heat as the nearby woodstove. Yellowed Christmas cards, saved over the years and perched like doves on the untrimmed branches, served as ornaments.       “I believe this is the prettiest tree I've ever had,” Howard proclaimed as we stood in its glow. “And its smells good, too.”       The only scent evident to me was a mixture of wood smoke and the remains of a fried pork supper. But I lied and said, “Sure does.”       Howard beckoned me to sit. We had shared this Christmas Day in the dairy barn and it was his request that we share a bit of the night, also. He knew I was alone because my family, his employer, was visiting relatives in town. I knew he was alone because he was always alone, a bachelor for nearly forty years.       “I'll get us some Christmas cheer,” he offered as I sank into the sofa. In untied work shoes, he shuffled toward the kitchen. A minute later, he returned with two water glasses filled with rhubarb wine. We raised them to the day.       “It's been a good Christmas, ain't it Allie Boy?” he asked as he sat in a ladder-back chair by the stove.       He had called me Allie Boy for as long as I could remember. I had taken to calling him Hoard the Dairyman, after the title of a farm magazine my father subscribed to.       I nodded. It had been a good day. Two wobbly newborn calves greeted us when we arrived at the dairy barn, sixteen hours earlier. Wet and shivering, we dried them with the past summer's straw before showing them where to find breakfast at their mamas' sides. One was a bull, the other a heifer.       “We ought to name 'em Mary and Joseph,” Howard now said as we rehashed the day, “on account of them being born today.”       Mary and Joseph? Generally, Howard had only one name for all cows: Succum. None of us knew what it meant or where it came from, but from the time he arrived on the farm in 1965 every cow was always Succum and every calf was always Little Succum. A group of cows or calves were simply Big Succums or Baby Succums.       “Mary and Joseph they will be,” I said approvingly.       Silence hung in the stale air. I reckoned that if you had “bached” it for 40 years like Howard, silence wasn't a void that always needed to be filled. So I worked on my wine and said nothing. Howard reached for his pipe and the big red can of Velvet that had been my Christmas gift to him that morning.       “You want to roll yourself a smoke, Allie? I got some papers here.”       I shook off the offer.       "Yep," Howard said as if to himself, “that's the prettiest tree I've ever had. And this is shaping up to be the best Christmas I've ever had because you came by.”       I looked at the tree and then at the old man ringed in tobacco smoke staring at it and I felt sad. Not for him. I felt sad for me. I had agreed to come to his house to accommodate him, a favor for an aging hired man.       But he had not wanted a favor. All he had wanted was the chance to share his Christmas good fortune with me. He had some wine, a warm fire, his prettiest Christmas tree ever, and a week's worth of tobacco. He was happy and he wanted to give me some of that happiness.       As I stared at the silhouette of Hoard the Dairyman in the glow of the Christmas lights, I saw a man of great warmth, vast wealth, and pure honesty. He didn't have a checking account or credit card but he was far richer than the condescending college boy on his sofa.       “Well Hoard,” I said a very quiet minute later, “I better go. We both have to be at the barn early tomorrow.”       He led me to the back door. “Don't forget,” he said as I headed for the truck, “we'll call those calves Mary and Joseph.” More than 40 Christmas nights later, I have not forgotten the two calves named Mary and Joseph, and Howard's priceless gift of simple giving. The Farm and Food File is published weekly throughout the U.S. and Canada. Source material and contact information are posted at www.farmandfoodfile.com. Alan's weekly blog would make a great gift for someone that is hard to buy for. He is very current on AG topics.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • We are having a pork pickup day this Saturday at the farm.  All on the list have been notified.  There is some lard available as the hog we processed was extremely fat.  Gilbert's are selling it for $7/tub.  It is pure lard, no additives.  Pure lard is hard to find.  If one wants a tub, I will pick it up along with the pork.  Pick up will be from 12-1pm.
  • We have started our beef list for 2018, quarters, halves and whole beeves.  Price will remain the same as 2017.  The local grocery store still has their premium ground beef at $4.99/ lb for commodity beef.
  • We  have a list working for ground beef and we now have enough for one animal.  We will schedule to have it processed in January for pick up in early February.

  • The next ground beef list is now started and depending on requests we are looking for sometime in the Spring for the next harvest.
  • We are about caught up on "Dirt" hogs.  The sausage hog is being processed, but the seller kind of mislead me on the size of the hog and there may not be as much ground pork as was indicated.  We should know by mid week how much we have.  Hopefully, we will be able to fill most of the requests.  Your requested amount may need to be reduced.  

 

It's an hour long, but has a lot of info on Vit K2. https://youtu.be/5-KGceRenn4

Hi – I'm reading "The Hacking of the American Mind: The Science Behind the Corporate Takeover of Our Bodies and Brains" by Robert H. Lustig and wanted to share this quote with you.

"Four Cs of Contentment: Connect, Contribute, Cope, and Cook. The rationale for each is bolstered by their documented benefits".   Very good book.

Unfortunately, a two-crop planting cycle of GE corn and soybeans, along with CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations) that raise one type of meat, has become the dominant model in the Midwest, thanks to the federal farm policy that subsidizes these crops, with devastating consequences to human health and the environment. Choosing grass fed products like grass fed beef and bison over those raised in CAFOs is a solution that we can all take part in.

Consumer demand for more humane, environmentally friendly grass fed beef is prompting some farmers to adopt regenerative agriculture techniques. In the Midwest, farmers are slowly adopting the use of cover crops and no-till farming, which improves soil health and reduces the need for chemical fertilizers and herbicides, benefiting insects. This is why sourcing your foods from a local farmer is one of your best bets to ensure you're getting something wholesome while also supporting biodiversity on the planet.

And, you'll be supporting the small farms — not the mega-farming corporations — in your area. Ideally, support farmers who are using diverse cropping methods, such as planting of cover crops, raising animals on pasture and other methods of regenerative agriculture that protect beneficial insects. In addition, take steps to make your own backyard friendlier to your insect friends, by eliminating the use of pesticides and other chemicals and planting a diverse variety of native flowers and other plants.
