  • This next Monday at La Sous Terre we will be showing the King Corn movie. Start time is 7 pm. 

 

  • Dear Friends of FOOD FIGHT,

    There are exciting events coming up for the film.

    • We are screening theatrically in Portland at the Hollywood Theatre, Feb 28th & 29th.

    • We may also extend that to a second weekend, March 5th - 7th.


    We are screening at the following film festivals:

    • Feb 26th - 28th Omaha Film Festival

    • March 6th - 8th DC Independant Film Festival (I will be there for a Q&A)

    • Also, the same weekend at the Sebastopol Film Festival

    • March 12th San Luis Obispo Int’l Film Festival (I will be there)

    • April 1st - 5th Florida Film Festival in Orlando (I will be there)

    If can’t make any of these screenings, then join us at La Sous Terre !!!There is a screening at La Sous Terre on Mar 9 at 7 pm

    We are also looking at two dates for theatrical screenings with Tom Philpott (one of the stars of the film and a great food writer at Grist.org) in North Carolina. Those will be early in April.

    Our biggest news is that we will screen at Seattle on March 27th -28th at the Greenfest with Alice Waters attending, as she unveils a major social action initiative (that we also have covered in the film). It is possible that we will be doing other events with Alice Waters across the country, and I will update you all about that as logistics are confirmed. It is likely that we will also be screening at the Greenfest dates in Denver May 2nd and Chicago, May 16th.
    There is also big news in the works about future theatrical dates, and since those are being negotiated as we speak, I will update you all about them in the next e-mail.

    One other thing that is very important to us: as we screen the film across the country we are trying to create more than just a movie in a theater. We are really trying to raise the food consciousness of the American consumer and help the many other organizations that are part of this movement. Many of you are the “choir” of this movement, and to make a movement happen we will have to multiply our numbers significantly. That is what I am hoping to do with our screening events, and I will be calling on you to help as we come to your cities.
    Many thanks, and much more to come.

  • Just returned from our Monday night video.  It was another one on GMO.  Well, if you don’t know what that acronym means you should have been there.  It was very informative.  Next Monday it is King Corn.  See ya there.  We start at 7pm.
 
  • If you want fryers this weekend I need to know by Thursday.  Same deal. 4-5 pounds and $2.75 per pound.  Several of you have already placed your orders.  Pick up will be the same.  Sometime in the afternoon.  I’ll send an email to those who ordered on Thursday

Remember to set aside time for next Monday evening at 7 pm.  The third in our series is another video on GMO.  Most people don't know what is happening to our food supply.  Check out the following link. http://www.organicconsumers.org/gelink.cfm.

 We have had several people call and tell us how good the fryers are.  We were at Nature's Pantry yesterday and their whole fryers were $3.59 per pound for a 4 pound fryer.  We are having another harvest on Feb 28.  Get your orders in.  They are still just $2.75/#.  If you want the liver, heart, gizzard be sure to let us know.

Here is some interesting info concerning our drinking water   http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/02/05/tap-water-toxins-is-your-water-trying-to-kill-you.aspx

Here is some info on corn http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/02/05/cornography-a-video-you-need-to-see.aspxOn March 2, Monday evening, we will be showing King Corn.

 

that's is for now from the hill.  Art and Debra

The alphabet has 26 letters.  If you choose the letter G, the letter M, and the letter O, what does that spell?  Find out Monday evening at 7 pm at LA Sous Terre. 

  •    The next fryer date is in two weeks, Feb 28.  Let me know how many fryers you want. 

That's it from the Hill.  Art and Debra

  • We just finished our first video on a Monday evening.  Our next video session on Feb 16 (next Monday) will be on GMO foods.  The video is produced by Jeffery  Smith, author of Seeds of Deception.   The second video will be by Jerry Brunetti, Real Milk as Medicine.  If you are concerned about your present food and your future food you will want to attend.
  • We have sold all of our beef for the next harvest and the one I had left from the previous harvest.
  • Fryers are on Sat. Feb 14. 

That's it from Breezy Hill.  Art and Debra

  • We still have one split half of beef for sale. 

  • The fryers are ready to be processed on Sat.  Feb 13.  They must be picked up by 2 pm.   Should probably bring a cooler and some ice.  They need to chill down before you put them in your freezer. 

  •  The video presentations begin this Monday evening at La Sous Terre at 7 pm.  We got the film Food Fight, so we will be showing that as well.  

  •  KC food circle is having their annual expos on March 28 and Apr 4.  Go to www.kcfoodcircle.org to get the times and directions.  Breezy Hill will be there with our new display.  It looks pretty sharp.

This the last call for fryers.  They will be processed on Feb 14.  They will weigh 4-5 pounds and are $2.75 per pound.  They will be shrink wrapped and ready for your freezer.  They are the rock- cornish cross chicken.  They are excellent fryers and you will immediately notice the difference between the store version.  They must be picked up before 2 pm.  We also have local honey, but need to know in advance to make sure adequate honey is available.  Prices vary depending on the size of bottle. 

Also, we have a split half available for the Mar 9 harvest.  Remember, there will be no more until late summer, early fall.

I forgot to include that we will be showing some videos starting on Feb 9.  We will have showings on the following four mondays.  We plan to start at 7 pm.  What's Going on With Our Food Production?  Flyers will be in Java Junction and La Sous Terre with the entire program.  We are awaiting  permission to show the video King Corn.  It should not be a problem since we are not charging admission.  We will be in the basement, La Sous Terre.  Topics to be covered include CAFO's, GMO, Corn and Food Fights.  The videos will be about 60 minutes and some nights there will be two videos.  Hopefully, we will have enough space.  To make sure, since the space is rather small and seating is limited, get there early.  We do have some standing room.  Perhaps it might help for everyone to RSVP.

That's it for now.  Art and Debra

I am sending this web site that my daughter Marlies found yesterday.   I have included ALL my contacts.  After listening to the Michael Pollan interview, you will want to include your friends as well.  Please feel free to post a comment to our web site.  Go to INTERACT and CONTACT US.  The NPR site has the interview (Listen Now), which you can listen to while doing other tasks.  It also has the New Yorker Magazine article (Open Letter).  I attended a lecture by Dr John Ikerd at the Small Farmers Gathering in Columbia, Mo this past weekend and he had essentially the same thoughts.   I am also using my list from our website, so some of you may get it twice.


If you care about the environment, wonder about the US food policy, or grew up in a farming community, I beg you to listen to this archived story.  Terry Gross from Fresh Air interviews Michael Pollan, who is brilliant in my opinion.  40 minutes of insight into what our agricultural society has been transformed.

We have access to some pasture raised fryers.  They will be ready in about two weeks.  They will be about 4-5 pounds.  Nature's Pantry has whole fryers for $3.59 per pound.  We are asking $3.25.  There is only 50 total, so it's first come first to get.  They will be vaccuumed packaged.  If you purchased at least ten you will get a free jar of local honey.  They must be picked up -- no deliveries at this price.

Thanks for the beef orders received so far. 

That's it from Breezy Hill for now.
