  • It came in the mail today, so the film this next Tuesday will be, FOOD, Inc.  Sorry, there will be NO $50 credits for beef.  We had several customers qualify for the credit.  Thanks.  This would be a great opportunity to invite a friend.  We will start at 6:30 pm 

I wish all of you could have access to our pasture milk.   If you have to rely on store milk please make sure that it does not contain rBHG.  Read this and find out that Dr Epstein knew this in 1989.  What year is it and is it still allowed in the US?

The grass is getting short for the dairy cows.  I have weaned Rosebud’s calf.  He is big enough and Rosebud needs to recoup (gain some fat) before it gets cold.  She is getting older and I have to reduce her stress.   That leaves two cows.  Daisy only has two quarters, so she is just “half” a cow.  With the cold weather coming and the grass dwindling we will be reducing the amount of milk that is available for sale.  We may have some this winter, but if it gets cold (below 32) we will not be milking.  The milk does not have the same value when there is no grass.  We treat milk as a food and as such there is a season and that season depends on grass.  Starting in December existing customers will need to call to see if we have milk.  Don’t be surprised if there is none.   If you have to have milk during this time, you may want to take this time to locate a source for the winter months.

We will be going to Johnson County Community College tomorrow evening to attend Wes Jackson's talk.  Should be good.  I've read several of his books and  his institute at Salina, Ks is a national assest.  I'll bet most of you have never heard of Wes.  Here is the link http://kcfoodcircle.blogspot.com/2009/10/wes-jackson-speaks-at-jccc-on-wednesday.html

  • Six freezers have been refilled after 333 miles of driving to deliver beef.  Thanks to each for being there to accept the delivery.  It was well planned and it went very smoothly.  Remember to check our web site for the recipes for brisket, rump roast and liver.
  • Still not sure of the movie for the Nov 17 showing at La Sous Terre.  We have one more to preview.
  • If you don't buy your beef from us, make sure who does it.  Read this New York Times article.  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/04/health/04meat.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=oct%204,%202009%20e-coli&st=cse

Here is some important information.  It’s amazing what our environment is doing to us.

Here is a very comprehensive interview with Dr. Blaylock a neuro-surgeon.  It's rather long but has a lot of very important information.  I sent an interview of his previously.  He was on the film we reviewed last night, Sweet Remedy.  It has a lot of facts and information about Sweetners and MSG.  It is much too long for La Sous Terre.  Therefore, if anyone locally is interested, you can borrow it.  Here is the link

The Weston A. Price foundation (please visit their web site www.westonaprice.org ) established the Farm-to-consumer Defense Fund to help the small farmers and food producers in their struggles against the federal and state regulators.  It has been very successful and has had several great successes.  It doesn’t make the local news, so it is not surprising that you have never heard of it.  The goal of the fund is to protect YOUR access to local food.  We support it because we want to stay in the business of producing YOUR local food.    We view this as a mutual effort, in that you the consumer also needs to contribute to insure YOUR continued flow of locally produced food.  Most of you have severe doubts regarding the safety and quality of the industrial food system.   Take the time and visit their web site  http://www.farmtoconsumer.org/  .   

 

Thanks Tara Baker for the local article.  Tara is a student at the local university (UCM) and is one of our  milk and egg customers.  Ben, thanks for the kind words.  Ben is also a loyal milk, chicken, eggs and beef customer.

Here is a presentation by Jeffery Smith on GMO foods.  We attended a presentation by him about a year ago.  It was very informative and distressing.  It is about 80 minutes long, so set aside some time and get yourself informed on this potentially damaging technology.  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/10/17/Everything-You-HAVE-TO-KNOW-about-Dangerous-Genetically-Modified-Foods.aspx

 

 

E-coli is happening, we just don’t know about it if it is not a local story.   Our food system shaky at best.  BUY from someone you know, or if possible raise it yourself.

Just yesterday there was a news report of two deaths in New York area due to e-coli.  I haven't seen it in the local media.  There was also the report on a huge recall in Vermont.  Thanks internet.  No wonder newspapers are folding?

  • The next film at La Sous Terre will be shown on Nov 17, starting at 6:30 pm.  We haven't decided which film to show.  Should know next week.
  • The next chicken day is Nov. 11.  I notified those that are getting chickens.  If you did not get an email, your chicken day will be in Dec.
  • The next beef processing date is Nov 10.  I will notify those getting that harvest just as soon as I deliver them to the processor.  If you will not be ready  for your meat by the end of November, let me know.  There will be two more deliveries in December and one in January.
  • The turkeys are making good weight gains.  Some have asked if they could get a smaller one.  If you want a 15-20 pound turkey, I need to know and we will process them on the Nov 11 chicken day.  Otherwise, the turkeys will be 25+ by the Sat before Thanksgiving.

 

I happened to catch this the other morning.  It sure would have been more interesting to have had a history teacher like William Engdahl.  Learn about OIL.  "A Century of War"

  • I was able to get another beef processing date, therefore we are taking more orders for beef.  It is not until Jan 6, unless they have a cancellation. 
  • The chicken date is coming soon.  I will contact those that are getting chickens, as soon as, I get the date.
  • Those that attended the showing of the film, Ingredients had high praise for the film.  There was a good discussion regarding where heirloom seeds are available.  We have a couple of options for the Nov film.  Will set the date and announce the title soon.

You may want to change dentists after watching this video.  Debra has finally found a good dentist.

  • Yes, if you bought honey from us, we can reuse the jars.  Please return when empty.
  • We are vaccuum packing the wheat, so when you come to pick up milk it will be available.

  • Check out the Pot Roast recipe on our web site.  It is under MORE on the right.
  • Those that have your beef, I hope you have requested the rump roast.  Those who are getting their beef, make sure you get a rump roast.
  • Ingredients, the film is this Tuesday, Oct 20 at 7 pm.

  • The film, Ingredients, (about 70 minutes) is showing this next Tuesday at 7 pm at La Sous Terre.  Great film.
  • The hogs are sold.  Thanks.
  • We have about six turkeys left.
  • Still have some beef.  We had the best rump roast yesterday.  I will post that recipe as soon as I can condense it.  Watch for it on our site.
  • I am enclosing some wheat information.  We have some great hard white winter wheat for $.80/#.  On the internet it sells for over a dollar. 
  • We have the last honey for the year.
  • We have some pumpkins left.  $3 each.
  • Green house is complete and we are starting to fill it for winter food.  Stop by and see it.  It didn't cost much and should provide a lot of food. 

I’m sure glad the USDA and FDA are protecting the consumers.  I don’t think you read about this in your local papers.  It’s no wonder newspapers are struggling.

I sent this info some time ago.  I am sending it again.  We have some excellent hard white winter wheat.   It makes great biscuits, pancakes and can be sprouted. http://editor.nourishedmagazine.com.au/articles/wheaty-indiscretions-what-happens-to-wheat-from-seed-to-storage

And there is more on white bleached flour.  http://www.healthy-eating-politics.com/white-flour.html    .  This is an interesting and informative web site.

Here is more reading from the web site “Healthy Eating Politics”.     http://www.healthy-eating-politics.com/dietary-guidelines.html
