                      BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • I recently was behind a young woman at the check out at our local grocery store.  She had at least 40 of those rather small yogurts.  I made a comment, "you must really like yogurt".  Her response, "I have three daughters, they love yogurt and it is on sale".  I hesitated and replied, "you should make your own yogurt".  To which she replied, "that would take too much time".  Too much time?  That's almost like it takes too much time to boil water.
  • We have pretty much caught up with milk for our existing customers.  We could add some more as we have another cow due to calve. If you want to be added send us an email.
  • This past Saturday we had a ground beef pick up.  It went very well.  I have a new list started and can add some more.  I will be sending an email to those presently on the list to make sure those are still wanting ground beef.  Remember, it is still half priced compared to the price at Nature's Pantry, $4.75/lb.  Their price is $8 to $10/lb.
  • I finished Jo Robinson's book, Eating on the Wild Side.  Excellent book.  I highly recommend it if you are interested in optimizing your health.  It takes your knowledge of health to a higher level.
  • We have a new  good source for "Dirt" hogs, so let me know and I can add you to the list.
  • A very important vote to label GMO's is taking place in the state of Washington tomorrow.

  •                       BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • Recently finished Michael Pollan's book, Cooked.  It is, as expected from Pollan, a very good book and well worth reading.
  • I am now reading Jo Robinson's new book, Eating on the Wild Side.  If you want to know which varities of vegetables to buy and/or plant you will want to add this book to your library.  Learn which have the most phytonutrients, and how fast those degrade in storage.  Learn how to double the anti-oxidant value of lettuce and how to double the storage time in the refirigerator.  Oh yes, if you don't know a very important property of garlic, you won't get the often touted medicinal benefits.  You will learn a limeric so you'll never again ruin the garlic.  
  • Next chicken day is this coming weekend.  The last one will be Nov 9.  Stock up for coming winter and spring.  Contact Virginia, raetdy@aol.com.  I think they have changed the feeding ration, so check with her.
  • More ground beef is coming soon, so if you are not on my list, send me an email.  Be sure to include how much you want.  Price is the same $4.75/ pound.  If you want the Nature's Pantry ground beef, be prepared to pay $8-10/lb.
  • Karen had a heifer calf.  We will be calling those of you who have been patiently waiting for A2 raw milk.
  • Our quarterly copy of Wise Traditions arrived today and they have included the latest research on GMO foods.  They have avoided this topic as most of their readers already were avoiding the few GMO grains, but now more and more grains are being converted, either directly or indirectly.  If you are concerned about health issues you should join the Weston A. Price Foundation,  www.westonaprice.org, and you will receive the quarterly publications.  All their articles are very well documented/referenced.
  • We still have the 549 house and the KCP&L $49,800 rebate is coming to an end Dec 31.  Just think 3400 square feet, six acres, the only utility cost water.  Your electric (heating and cooling) would be zero.
  • We have pint glass bottles,free, for those making KOMBUCHA.
  • I am enclosing this a second time.  Make sure you read this and send it to a friend.

  • We returned Thursday from our trip to Phoenix.  We helped our daughter Marlies with her move.  She finally finished her doctorate degree in Medical Nutrition Science (human nutrition).  We logged 3000 miles and visited the Grand Canyon on the last day before it closed.  Enjoyed other places, Flagstaff, Sedona, Santa Fe,  Taos and many miles of range land.  We returned using only about 10 miles of interstate highways.  The interstates are full of trucks.
  • Thanks to all that picked up their ground beef last Saturday.  It was nice to know it went well while we were driving in a down- pour all the way to Tulsa.  And how much did we get?  Not much.  There wasn't enough to measure.  We are still very dry.  Missed a "sure bet" on Friday, as well.
  • We are still adding to our ground beef list. And I am searching for more "dirt" hogs.  Remember, if you want chickens and a turkey contact Virginia,  raetdy@aol.com.
  • We did not place the order to Green Pastures last week, as we didn't want it delivered while we were gone.  The order will be placed this Tuesday.  If there is something you want, let me know.  We don't make that many orders, so plan accordingly.
  • Milk is still very short. We are waiting for two cows to freshen.  We have plently of eggs.

  • The ground beef that everyone has been waiting patiently for is dry ageing.  As soon as I find out how many pounds I will go down the list and notify those that will be getting their requested amount.  If you do not get an email, that means you are on the next list in the same order.  We went to Nature's Pantry today, and I some good news for those fortunate to get our ground beef, it is $10.89 for their "organic" beef.  Our price at $4.75 is less than half of theirs.  It is difficult to price ground beef, as one never knows the yield until it is ground.  Their roasts are $8.99.  Remember, our freezer beef is still just $3.50/#.
  • If you want chickens, contact Virginia.  Nature's Pantry has whole fryers for $6.99.  Her email address is raetdy@aol.com.
  • We are extremely dry.  Big cracks are forming.  We need 3-4 inches.  At least this year the ponds still have water.
  • I still have not heard from the Kiger's.  Their deposit may become my Christmas present.

                      BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • Very busy time of the year.  Seems everything ripens at the same time.  We got our sweet corn in late due to wet weather and now we are swamped with corn.  Green beans are producing, elderberries and grapes are being juiced, tomatoes by the bucket and the beeves are finishing.  
  • We finally got some rain.  I emphasize "some".  We got a quarter of an inch and just five miles to our east they had 2 inches.  We need 3-5 inches to get grasses growing for fall and winter stockpiling.
  • Will be weighing and sorting cattle this next week.  I wanted to do it last week, but it was too hot and would have been too stressful for the cattle.  We should have several ready to send to the processor, so those of you that have been patiently waiting will soon get an email with instructions to call Gilbert's.
  • I still have a check for a half of beef from someone named Kiger.  It is check number 2811.  I have no invoice nor email for a "Kiger".  If your name is Kiger or you know a Kiger, please notify me.
  • The house at 549 VV is now listed on Zillow.  Just enter Centerview, Mo.

  • Last call for a "dirt" hog.  If you want a half or a whole I need to know before Monday.
  • For chickens and turkeys contact Virginia at raetdy.aol.  There is another chicken day coming soon.  Fill your freezer for the winter and get an excellent turkey for Thanksgiving.
  • Spent last weekend in Debra's hometown in Illinois.  That is monoculture country.  People have 160 acres of corn or soybeans on at least one side of their house.  It's everywhere and instead of admiring it, I could only think of my hard earned tax dollars that supports this insanity.  On the way to a restaurant in a nearby small town we noticed several large dairies.  On the way home, after dark, we noticed the lights were on in the dairies.  Why?  Well, just like the chicken "factories" the "farmers" have learned from the AG boys to keep the lights on and they will keep eating and will make drumsticks faster and produce more milk.  My cows sleep at night.  Are you buying milk and eating chicken breasts from animals that are not allowed to sleep? Contact Virginia for your chickens.
  • Cattle are doing very well, even though we have not had enough rain.  End of September we should be filling the long awaited orders for freezer beef.  Our cattle sleep at night.
  • We really enjoyed our nectarines.  If you have never had one ripe of the tree then you have no idea how great a fruit they are.  The store nectarines are horrible.  We have had a wonderful crop of peaches this year.  Have made a lot of jam.  Lots of jars of pickles and from just one hill of cucumbers.  Fruit trees are tricky and you have to be patient.
  • We are enjoying our KOMUCHA and home ice cream.

  • Who is Kiger?  I have a deposit from them, but no record for that name.  Help!!
  • Wheat harvest was a bust.  Several lessons learned for the future.  We will have enough for next years planting and wheat berries for bread.  Chickens will have to eat rye and oats.  I sure am glad I planted the oats despite my neighbor's doubts.  It was much later due to the cold (remember the snow in May?).  Had I planted in Feb they would not have sprouted (remember how dry it was until the snow?).  We will clean the wheat and rye next week, need two days with no rain in the forecast.
  • MIlk is short.  We have missed most of the rain and pastures are getting short.  Customers are still getting milk, just not the full amount.  Princess is getting closer and that should bring us back to our 4-5 gallons per day.
  • Debra has been deep into peaches and pickles.  Our small fruit orchard is starting to produce.  It sure takes a long time and one has to be patient.  We lost several last year due to that awful drought.  We replaced three this year.  We are losing our old apple tree in the chicken yard.  The drought last year severly weakened it.  
  • The house we have been working on is finally done.  We are waiting for an appraisal and for the city to finish the water hook up.  If you know someone interested in a rural home on six acres, have them go to this URL, http://www.breezy-hill-farm.com/house-at-549-sw-vv.
  • Chicken day went well at Virginia's.  The next one will be in about 3 weeks.  E-mail her and reserve your fryers.  Make sure your freezer is stocked.  I haven't checked prices lately, but I am sure at $3.25 it's 50% under prices elsewhere.  If you are wanting a turkey let Virginia know.
  • I have a short list for "dirt" hogs.  Let me know.  There will be some more available in about a week.
  • There will be another "hamburger" day this fall.  I already have a list started.  There is a five pound minimum and it is still $4.50/lb

  • If you are interested in some "Dirt" hog pork, let me know.  There will be some available in about two weeks.  We are fortunate to be able to get quality hogs for market price. This past week I got a call  from someone that had taken a hog to the processor, and their customer had backed out and wanted to know if I had a customer for the hog.  I agreed, but only after their agreeing to my price.  Their price was 30% more.
  • Finally got the combining done.  What a struggle.  First, there was a delay getting help to start the combine, then we discoveredthe soy diesel fiasco (costly lesson). After the oats were done a bearing went out.  Got that fixed and harvested the rye and finally the wheat.  The wheat was a disaster due to the long wait and two wind storms.  I will have my seed for the next crop and enough for our bread.  There may be some for sale, but the chickens will not get any.  They have plenty of oats and rye.  
  • The house at 549 St Rt VV, Centerview will be completed this week.  If interested use google maps to see property.  Hope to get some pictures and get a posting on CraigsList.  We are hoping to find the right family for this energy efficient house on six acres.  The land has never had any chemical fertilzers and has to the best of my knowledge(60 years) always been in grass.
  • "People are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food."  Wendell Berry
  • Anyone wanting an oxtail or some beef tallow let me know.
  • Milk supply has decreased somewhat, due to the lack of rain and the hotter weather.
