Breezy Hill Farm Update Sep 3, 2017

Posted 9/3/2017 10:15pm by Art Ozias.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • This is the last call for ground beef from this next harvest.  Any requests received after Monday will definitely be on the following list.  For those on my current list, I will know this Wednesday how many pounds will be available.  I will send an email on Thursday which will notify you if there was enough for the entire list.  If you don't get an email, I will add you to the next list.  Pick up will be Saturday, September 16 at the farm from 12-1pm.  WATCH FOR THE EMAIL!!
  • Three people were taken off my list for a "dirt" hog, as one of my sources had an extra that he was unable to sell.  I still have several on my list, and hopefully we'll get you some pork before deer season.  Some processors close down then and it is difficult to get pork or beef processed.  I will be taking in a beef this week for three on my list.  They will be getting an email soon with details.

In a stunning blow to science, democracy and human health, the Trump administration has overruled the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) own career scientists and stubbornly refused to ban the toxic pesticide chlorpyrifos, which has been linked to dangerous impacts on young children’s brains — including higher rates of ADHD and autism and most shockingly lowered IQs for children whose mothers are exposed to the pesticide during pregnancy.

The science behind chlorpyrifos damage to young children’s brains is so conclusive that career EPA scientists actually went so far as recommending the pesticide be completely BANNED from agricultural use, but Trump’s EPA administrator Scott Pruitt personally reversed this decision.

According to multiple media reports, Pruitt’s decision came after a brief meeting with the CEO of Dow Chemical and an intense push by agribusiness lobbyists who advised Trump's political appointees at the EPA to ignore the multiple health studies that show the pesticide chlorpyrifos can harm children’s brains.

Fortunately, the Senate is now stepping up to protect people and the planet from this dangerous synthetic pesticide and a handful of Senators just introduced a bill that would ban this toxic pesticide for good called the “Protect Children, Farmers and Farmworkers from Nerve Agent Pesticides Act of 2017.”






THAT'S IT FROM THE HILL FOR THIS WEEK.  ART AND DEBRA
