Gobble gobble. I know it’s only early October, but for a farm-to-table Thanksgiving, it’s time to start thinking about THE TURKEY. Our turkeys are a traditional "white" breed. They are free roaming turkeys that run around the pasture and forage for bugs A LOT. They are fed an organic soy-free turkey feed, which contains a specially formulated blend of corn, wheat, peas, barley, fishmeal, flax seed, kelp, and a nutri-balancer which has kelp, vitamins, and minerals.

Days are getting shorter, the weather is getting cooler. The leaves are just starting to turn. And, the cows are loving this weather. Cows produce the most in the spring and the fall, when the weather is cool and the grass is growing. Right now, the cows are eating fresh alfalfa grass, which is an awesomely nutritious food source for our (mostly) heritage breed cows. However, starting in late November, the farmer extends the fresh grass season by growing quick crops of oat grass. This means that our cows can continue grazing on fresh grass through December and sometimes into January.

I’d like to apologize to anyone who I did not respond to immediately this week. I’m dealing with a family emergency and am simply not at my normal capacity this week. While we’re on the topic, here’s a heads up. The farmer is marching toward Amish wedding season (everyone gets married in the fall), which means staffing will be tricky. To boot, the fall is usually the season with the biggest orders. Between CSAs ending and the fall harvest spirit, it’s a great time for cooking indoors.

In need of gumption for nutritious school lunches? I am! So... I went back into the newsletter archives and pulled this gem from the same week last year (if you've been reading for a while, I hope you enjoy the replay).

Farm Day is next weekend, and I am so looking forward to it. Farm Day is an annual event, where the farmer invites members to tour the farm and see exactly where their food comes from and how it’s made. As usual, the farmer will have a bountiful spread of food prepared by the farmer’s wife, hay wagon rides, and pony cart rides. For the first time, the farmer is also offering four educational workshops to members:

What’s your definition of food perfection? There are so many crazy diet trends, confusing labels, and chronic digestive and autoimmune issues. This makes it even harder to figure out what the “perfect” foods are. Members share their questions and concerns with me all the time. Why are the dairy goats given grain? Why was the butter a bit sour this week? Why aren’t the eggs and meat fresher? Why are your shipping prices so high? When it comes down to it, people are looking for three things from any product: high quality, speed, and low cost. You can usually get two but not all three.

As you probably heard, Dewayne Johnson won a huge case against Monsanto this week. Woo hoo! It is now proven that glyphosate (in the popular weed killer Round Up) led to Dewayne’s terminal cancer, and he will be awarded $289 million. This case gives huge precedent for more cases to follow. And, having my food choices validated in the conventional arena feels pretty good. But, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Glyphosate is not the only chemical that is abundantly sprayed or added to our American food. And, the truth is, we don’t even have the right to know what’s in our food.

Cow milk is undoubtedly the most common type of milk in America. However, if you consider milk consumption globally, goat milk comes out on top. Why? The reasons are multifaceted. Here are four reasons why goat milk is better than cow milk. Some apply to us, and some don’t.

If you’ve perused our website or store, you may have noticed that we don’t use the word “organic” anywhere. This is intentional. Since we are not a “certified organic” farm, we cannot legally use the word “organic” to describe our food… even though it’s probably the best word in modern American culture to use. One of the top questions I get from current and prospective members is, “Are you organic?” I wish I could simply say, “Yes,” but my answer is more complex.

On my recent farm visit, I was schooled by the farm staff on how to make fresh dairy products. I watched them make everything – many varieties of yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, sour cream, butter, pudding, and more!
