How much do you spend each month on your food? According to the USDA, the average family of four currently spends $600-1200 per month on food, depending on quality and how thrifty you are. If you’re reading this email, I know that you value nutrition and the environment. This means that your food budget is either on the high end of the spectrum or off the charts. Don’t feel guilty. It’s ok.

Imagine you are a cow, and it’s a chilly fall night. You look around and see a steaming pile of fresh manure. What would you do? You’d sit down and squoosh your udders into that soft warm pillow and fall fast asleep. This is why, when the cows go in for the 5am milking, their teats are filthy! An average farmer simply coats the teats in iodine and leisurely wipes them with a paper towel. Our farmer is beyond average. He’s exceptional.

The WAPF’s goal is to provide accurate, scientifically-backed information about health and nutrition. Its philosophy is that you can heal your body and maintain good health by sourcing quality, properly-raised, nourishing, traditional foods from small farmers.

Chicken bone broth is not a magical pharmaceutical pill that masks symptoms and likely stresses your body. Instead, it is a nourishing food that naturally allows your body to heal itself more quickly, especially from viral infections like colds and flus.

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.

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:
