First, let’s get this straight. Bone broth is not a regular stock or broth. It’s the superhero of stocks. Some call is liquid gold. Where stock and broth are boiled for a few hours, bone broth is simmered for up to 24 hours. Bone broth should also contain vinegar, which draws additional nutrients from the bones. There are a lot of amazing benefits of bone broth, but today we’re going to focus on one - collagen!

If you’re reading this email, then you likely know the importance of food and its effects on your health. However, eating well by sourcing food from small farms can be expensive and consume a good portion of your budget. Many customers have reported to me the desire to buy more small farm food but are held back by the prices. I’m hoping I can help this week.

Being in the dairy business, we hear a lot of rumors about milk on the farm. One particular rumor really got us curious: You can live on only milk. So, is this true? We had to look into it more.

When we hear the term “regenerative farming” we may have a specific vision in mind. Maybe you think about Joel Salatin’s animal rotations or biodynamic growing principles or planting micro-clover in your lawn. The truth is that the word “regenerative” means something different to every grower.

When I tell people that I work for an Amish farmer, they sometimes respond, “They make the best food!” Then, they usually go on to tell a story of how they ate an amazing whoopie pie from an Amish market, how they visited Lancaster County and ate at a yummy restaurant, or how they only order food from Amish farmers. There seems to be a mentality that, since the Amish are more connected to nature, they would automatically make food that’s more natural and better for you. However, that’s simply not the case. Let me explain.

There are an array of confusing and subjective food labels in stores - Prime, Choice or Select beef, Grade A or Grade B maple syrup, free range or pastured eggs, etc. These labels are all based on a human making a subjective assessment of the product.

I got a question from a customer last week - what is the fat content in your ground beef? She wanted to make sure it was lean enough to feed to cats. This really got me thinking. Why and how do we even know the fat content of ground beef, and should we care? Let’s dive a little deeper.

This past weekend we hosted our annual Farm Day event. It was a day full of excellent food, good old fashioned fun, and some unexpected epiphanies. In the farm’s packing room (where lunch was served), the farmer has signs posted. One sign says: One minute of anger ~ weakens the immune system for 4-5 minutes! One minute of laughing ~ boosts your immune system for 24 hours! This really got me thinking about the correlation between stress, happiness, and health.
