            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • Martin houses are full.  I'm adding two more poles for next year.  
  • I think I'm caught up on beef orders.  Our 2016 harvest has started.  We have two going in June 6.  Is there someone with the last name of Craig that has requested a beef?  I have that filed in two places and I think one is incorrect.
  • Those wanting freezer beef this year need to send a $100 deposit and I will add your name to the list. 
  • I just got a call from one of my dirt hog producers.  I have some names on my list.   If you want great pork email me and I'll add your name.
  • We got a bee swarm recently.  Hopefully, we'll get some more.  Bees are scarce.  I rarely see any on the white clover as I mow.  I used to see many.
  • We planted a new strawberry bed this spring and didn't expect any berries for the first year.  Guess what, we are having a bunch of great berries.  They actually taste like a strawberry and are a deep red throughout.  Store ones are just red on the outside.
  • Anyone know someone that would like have a family A2 dairy cow.  We have a couple for sale.  We are still slowly downsizing.
  • I just found out in the latest issue of ACREs magazine that they have a new web site, www.ecofarmingdaily.com .  Here is the link to the very good interview they recently had in their magazine with Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride,  http://ecofarmingdaily.com/interview-natasha-campbell-mcbride-on-gut-health/ .  Be sure to take time an read this important interview.   Also, check out the web site.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • The martins are taking over.  I've got to put up another two decker for next year.
  • We are down  to our last gallon of coconut oil, so we will be making a Green Pastures order next week.  E-mail us with any item you want us to include in that order.
  • We did our first Ground Beef only this past week.  I notified those on my list starting at the top.  We still have a lot of you remaining on our list.  We will be working on that list very soon, so keep watching for an email.
  • Gardening is progressing.  We've had some very nice rains. We are making our annual trip to Morgan County to get sweet potato slips and other gardening supplies.  They have all of the raised bed planting medium.  We always need to add, top off, the beds in the spring.

  • Sure is nice to have a short row of asparagus in the garden.  It's very easy to establish and there are, to my knowledge, no pests or diseases.
  • Martin houses are full.  I guess I will put up another gourd rack for next year.  I think I'll put it in may orchard.
  • We got all of our orchard pest traps up last week.  I use a plastic bottle and put a cup of molasses and a cup of apple cider vinegar in it and hang it on a limb.  Will catch a lot of moths.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • The purple martins finally returned this past week.  We added another level of gourds and they are already occupying some of them.
  • I think we have finally two pairs of blue birds in our blue bird houses.  We have about a dozen houses on the lane to our house and for the past several years we have just had sparrows.  It's a constant battle cleaning out the houses.  
  • Natalie had her calf.  It is the best bull calf I have ever had.  He will be a keeper.  I have two Guernsey bulls now.  One is spoken for and they other is four years old, so I'll need a replacement and Romeo is going to be the one.
  • I posted in a previous UPDATE that I had purchased a pasture renovator.  I have been over all my pastures.  The purpose is to break the compaction caused by thousands of hooves over time.  Each tooth/spike is about 5 inches wide and 9 inches long, tapering to a point.  I have poked a zillion holes in the ground, and as you are probably aware when ground dries, a crack will become wider and wider.  Well, I now have ,because of the dry weather we've had the past three or four weeks, a zillion little ponds in my pastures.  If it rains tonight, and it is forecasted for the next three days, I will capture a bunch of water and guess where it will go?  Right, into those zillion small ponds.  That along with my pocket ponds and berms will go a long way in drought proofing our farm.
  • Anyone making their own ice cream will want to know Debra's secret.  It is the best ice cream I've ever eaten.
  • There may be some ground beef in the near future.  Watch for an email.
  • Did anyone make a beef deposit with a check number 7550?

  • Is there someone with last name Craig that is waiting for a whole beef?  I have an invoice for  them, but have no email address.
  • Just finished another two jars of kraut.  Can't believe how it always turns out so good.
  • The Green Pastures order will arrive this week, so if you ordered, something please contact us.
  • Calving has started.  We now have six running, playing and enjoying the warm weather.
  • I am still adding names to our ground beef list.  My guess is that we will have some late May or early June.

  • The spinach in our raised bed looks fantastic.  How can one not have a raised bed to provide nutrient dense food.  Remember, the spinach in today's grocery store has 48% fewer nutrients than spinach in the 1950's (USDA data).
  • We transplanted our cabbage plants into the raised bed and sowed carrot,lettuce, kale, beets and radish seeds into the beds.
  • Attn Ms Givens: we have you on the ground beef list, but we don't have any contact information for you. Please email us. Thanks.
  • Remember, KC food circle expo's are this coming weekend.  Check their website for times and places,  kcfoodcircle.org.
  • We have had some good friends recently have heart and kidney stone issues.  Spending time in ICU's and a hospital is not a pleasant experience.  I am including the presentations by Dr Whitcomb and Dr Rheaume-Bleue AGAIN.  I'm sure many have not taken the time to listen to these yet.  The April issue of ACRE's magazine has an excellent interview with Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride.  She also talks about the importance of making sure Vitamin K2 is in your diet.  An Acres subscription is about $20 per year. There are many very important articles in each monthly issue.    That interview has some really important information.  We will be making some copies to have for those who pick up milk.  We try very hard to keep our customers well.
  • Here is the link to Dr. Whitcomb,  https://youtu.be/jPWCJxyHAg4 
  • Here is the link to Dr. Kate Rheaume-Bleue,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYMExQNosTQ&feature=youtu.be

  • We are running low on Green Pastures products, so we will be making an order in the near future.   If you are not aware of their products, go to their website , www.greenpasture.org.  We normally order coconut oil, ghee and cod liver oil with butter oil by the case lot and therefore get a significant price break.  We pass these on to you at our wholesale cost with the freight charges pro rated.  We do this to get our products at a lower cost and to, hopefully, help you, our web site friends, to get these items at the best possible cost.  The product needs to be picked up here at Breezy Hill Farm.
  • Our milk supply has jumped way up with the cows now having green grass.  As you know from the recent videos, the cow eats the grass and converts it into a myriad of things.  One of the most important is Vitamin K2.  We have added some of our prior customers back.  We had to drop them during the winter with production low and when I sold one of the cows.  I have someone coming this Thursday to buy one of my Guernsey A2/A2 bulls, and they are interested in maybe adding another milk cow to their operation.  So, milk is going to be somewhat tenuous this year as we downsize.  We will not just sell our cows and quit.  They will go to a family to continue as a family cow.
  • We have had several people get a kraut (fermentation) kit.  They now can make their own Vit K2.  We also had several people get a start of Kefir grains and a baby SCOBY for kombucha.  We now have no baby SCOBYs.  We will let you know when we have raised some new babies.
  • I am including the link to Acre's website for anyone interested in buying Sally Fallon-Morell's workshop on a healthy diet.  It is very good.  It will forever change your relationship with food.  http://www.acresusa.com/sally-fallon-morell-nourishing-traditional-diets

  • I received a call from a neighbor yesterday.  He has four Dirt Hogs ready to be processed.   I had enough on my list four all four.  I received an email from one person requesting a delay as their freezer is too full for an entire hog.  Therefore, I have a whole hog or two halves available.  I must know before 12 tomorrow.  
  • Wow, what a difference a little grass makes.  Milk is up about 50%.  I'm still milking.  I have sold one, and have several people interested in having their own family cow.  We are still in the process of scaling was back to just our own cow.  Must keep our source of grass only milk with all the health benefits.  
  • Terra has A2 milk.  I would guess Whole Foods have it as well.  Amazing, we have had it for the past 10 years. We have promoted A2 for the past several years.  If you want to find out more about A2 go to Dr Olree's web site, www.emineral.info .  While you are there learn more about minerals.  Click on the first option.  After the plant info there is information relative to human health.  On a side bar there are links to various video presentations.  Minerals are extremely important for your health as regulators.
  • We made two half gallon jars of kraut today.  I was at a health food store recently, Terra, and they had a 25 oz jar for $9.79.  Our cost was only the price of a head of cabbage, and a tablespoon of salt for a gallon. 
  • We have a lot of Kefir grains, if anyone is interested.  They are FREE.
  • Same with KOMBUCHA.  We had a couple of baby SCOBY's.

More than 10 USDA scientists “have faced consequences or investigations when their work called into question the health and safety of agricultural chemicals. These scientists documented clear actions that violated their scientific integrity, including USDA officials retracting studies, watering down findings, removing scientists’ names from authorship and delaying approvals for publication of research papers.

    Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, dissolves and opens the tight junctions between gut barrier cells in small intestines as seen in this video (30 sec).  Tight junctions keep out what should not be in your circulatory system. Intestinal permeability, commonly known as "leaky gut”, is linked to inflammation and a long list of chronic and acute conditions from autism to cancer, from gluten sensitivity to brain fog. The amount of glyphosate used (10 parts per million (ppm)) is well below the levels that is allowed on many crops, including grains such as rice, wheat, barley, buckwheat, millet, oats, rye, and genetically engineered soy and corn.  Allowable levels of glyphosate for oilseeds such as soybeans are currently set by the EPA at 40 ppm. When the cells have RESTORE applied first, the tight junctions remain intact.  It is believed that the carbon redox molecules found in RESTORE, which come from 50 million year-old soil, stops the production of Zonulin, a protein that opens the intestinal tight junctions.  RESTORE is also known to decrease NF-KB, an inflammatory pathway known to play a key role in metabolic disease like obesity, type 2 diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease.   For an enlightening discussion on gut health, chronic disease and prevention, and strengthening our immunity, USE THIS LINK to listen to Jeffrey Smith interview Dr. Zach Bush. Educating consumers about the health risks of GMOs is an on-going challenge.   www.reposibletechnology.org 

I just received an email from Missouri senator Blunt in response to my email regarding labeling of GMO products and guess what, he supports not labeling  and will base his decision on "science based" research.  Sounds good, except who's "science" is he relying on??

My science has no "skin" in the results, while his has a lot of corporate "skin" on the line.

  • Tomorrow we plan to separate the cows from the calves and yearlings in preparation for the calving start date of Mar 19.  Hope the weather holds.  My neighbors who start their calving in January have been very fortunate this year as the winter has been rather mild.
  • Remember, lacto fermentation (kraut) is a great way to make vitamin K2.  If you watched the videos I've included recently you'll know the importance of this crucial vitamin.  If you're new to our UPDATES you can go to our website and we post the last ten UPDATES under WHAT'S NEW.

  • For those who ordered their copy of Dr. Olree's presentation have learned the possible connection between dental fillings, Selenium and HPV.
  • Martin houses are up, cleaned and ready.  

******************************************************************************************

Research published in Expert Review of Clinical Pharmacology revealed that, in contrast to the current belief that cholesterol reduction with statins decreases atherosclerosis, the drugs may instead actually stimulate atherosclerosis and heart failure.5 There were several physiological mechanisms discussed in the study that show how statin drugs may make your heart health worse, one being that they inhibit the synthesis of vitamin K2. Vitamin K2 protects your arteries from calcification. Without it, plaque levels worsen. Vitamin K2’s biological role is to help move calcium into the proper areas in your body, such as your bones and teeth. It also plays a role in removing calcium from areas where it shouldn't be, such as in your arteries and soft tissues. If you have watched the Calcium and K2 lectures that I have included in my UPDATES you will recognize the importance ofK2.
