The Amish have this amazing tradition called a frolic. It’s when you invite your community to help you accomplish a big project. The host provides the game plan and the food... plenty of food. You work, you play, you eat, you chat, you connect, and you are well.

I hope you are enjoying the beautiful spring! Having you been watching the grass grow? The cows have officially switched from hay to fresh grass... and here comes my beloved yellow, nutrient-dense, spring milk. I pour my family grass-fed milk with confidence. You should, too. Here are 3 smart reasons why:

We know how much you value providing fresh, unprocessed dairy for your family. You know, the stuff that’s humanely raised and packed with essential nutrients, fully digestible proteins, crucial enzymes, and beneficial microorganisms. That’s why our farmer makes wholesome dairy products to order every week, with minimal heating. You simply can’t find these nutrient-dense dairy products in the store.

I was given a postcard for another small farm that said something like “100% Jersey cows producing A2 milk”, and this got me frustrated. It’s bad enough that “grass-fed” means a cow can be finished on grain and that “pastured” means a chicken may never touch grass, but now small farms are doing it, too!? I know farming is a hard gig, and I don’t think anyone is being maliciously deceitful. I’m disappointed. Unscrupulous farmers interested in high quality nutrient-dense food should do thorough research about new products, like A2 cow dairy, and present accurate information. And conscious consumers should do the same.

If you order eggs from us, you are used to getting eggs with a deep orange yolk. But, recently, you may have gotten a few eggs with yellow yolks. Gasp! Yellow yolks?! I know it’s shocking, but this does happen around this time every year. Here’s why.

Dr. William Albrecht made a film in the 1950s called The Other Side of the Fence (watch it here). Dr. Albrecht, a soil scientist, started his research to answer a few questions. Why do animals choose certain foods (often on the other side of the fence) over others? Why do some farms produce healthy livestock and some sickly? How is our soil affecting our animals’ diet?

As you may have noticed, we’ve had a good number of new products lately, specifically in the produce department. This is due to the farmer’s new partnership with the Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op (LFFC), a non-profit cooperative of over 100 small farmers from Lancaster County, PA, many of them living the Amish culture. We are so thankful to have this resource to connect our members with even more food produced on highly maintained and nutrient-rich soil.

Earlier this week, our farmer attended the 25th Annual Southwest PA Grazing Conference for people interested in the grass-fed opportunity. The theme for the 2018 conference was “The Next 25 Years”. The conference was attended by about 400 people. This is about double last year’s attendance, and the farmer thinks the reason why is the presence of Joel Salatin, who is a pretty big player in the current regenerative farming and real food movement.

In today’s kitchen, modern home chefs opt for lean cuts of meat that are quick and easy to prepare. Think chicken breast, steak, or pork chops. By giving preference to specific cuts of meat, most modern Americans are missing out on the flavors, textures, and nutrition that comes from the rest of the animal. Think organs, bones, and fat.
