The alphabet has 26 letters.  If you choose the letter G, the letter M, and the letter O, what does that spell?  Find out Monday evening at 7 pm at LA Sous Terre. 

  •    The next fryer date is in two weeks, Feb 28.  Let me know how many fryers you want. 

That's it from the Hill.  Art and Debra

  • We just finished our first video on a Monday evening.  Our next video session on Feb 16 (next Monday) will be on GMO foods.  The video is produced by Jeffery  Smith, author of Seeds of Deception.   The second video will be by Jerry Brunetti, Real Milk as Medicine.  If you are concerned about your present food and your future food you will want to attend.
  • We have sold all of our beef for the next harvest and the one I had left from the previous harvest.
  • Fryers are on Sat. Feb 14. 

That's it from Breezy Hill.  Art and Debra

  • We still have one split half of beef for sale. 

  • The fryers are ready to be processed on Sat.  Feb 13.  They must be picked up by 2 pm.   Should probably bring a cooler and some ice.  They need to chill down before you put them in your freezer. 

  •  The video presentations begin this Monday evening at La Sous Terre at 7 pm.  We got the film Food Fight, so we will be showing that as well.  

  •  KC food circle is having their annual expos on March 28 and Apr 4.  Go to www.kcfoodcircle.org to get the times and directions.  Breezy Hill will be there with our new display.  It looks pretty sharp.

This the last call for fryers.  They will be processed on Feb 14.  They will weigh 4-5 pounds and are $2.75 per pound.  They will be shrink wrapped and ready for your freezer.  They are the rock- cornish cross chicken.  They are excellent fryers and you will immediately notice the difference between the store version.  They must be picked up before 2 pm.  We also have local honey, but need to know in advance to make sure adequate honey is available.  Prices vary depending on the size of bottle. 

Also, we have a split half available for the Mar 9 harvest.  Remember, there will be no more until late summer, early fall.

I forgot to include that we will be showing some videos starting on Feb 9.  We will have showings on the following four mondays.  We plan to start at 7 pm.  What's Going on With Our Food Production?  Flyers will be in Java Junction and La Sous Terre with the entire program.  We are awaiting  permission to show the video King Corn.  It should not be a problem since we are not charging admission.  We will be in the basement, La Sous Terre.  Topics to be covered include CAFO's, GMO, Corn and Food Fights.  The videos will be about 60 minutes and some nights there will be two videos.  Hopefully, we will have enough space.  To make sure, since the space is rather small and seating is limited, get there early.  We do have some standing room.  Perhaps it might help for everyone to RSVP.

That's it for now.  Art and Debra

I am sending this web site that my daughter Marlies found yesterday.   I have included ALL my contacts.  After listening to the Michael Pollan interview, you will want to include your friends as well.  Please feel free to post a comment to our web site.  Go to INTERACT and CONTACT US.  The NPR site has the interview (Listen Now), which you can listen to while doing other tasks.  It also has the New Yorker Magazine article (Open Letter).  I attended a lecture by Dr John Ikerd at the Small Farmers Gathering in Columbia, Mo this past weekend and he had essentially the same thoughts.   I am also using my list from our website, so some of you may get it twice.


If you care about the environment, wonder about the US food policy, or grew up in a farming community, I beg you to listen to this archived story.  Terry Gross from Fresh Air interviews Michael Pollan, who is brilliant in my opinion.  40 minutes of insight into what our agricultural society has been transformed.

We have access to some pasture raised fryers.  They will be ready in about two weeks.  They will be about 4-5 pounds.  Nature's Pantry has whole fryers for $3.59 per pound.  We are asking $3.25.  There is only 50 total, so it's first come first to get.  They will be vaccuumed packaged.  If you purchased at least ten you will get a free jar of local honey.  They must be picked up -- no deliveries at this price.

 

Things to watch for when you go to the store for your favorite items.

We can now accept a new milk customer.  We have a space available for the beginning of the week.  I deliver to Warrensburg almost everyday of the week.

 

We have taken orders for one beef for this fall.  There will be a total of three beeves.  As always, it’s first come first to get one.  Let me know and I’ll send you an invoice.   The processing date will be the first week in December.

Here is as good an article as I’ve found on grass-fed beef.

 And here is the interview with David Blume in the latest Acres, USA magazine.  I emailed the publisher a request to have that interview available.  They were probably going to include it.  They probably had more requests, or maybe they realized the importance of getting this info out.  BE SURE TO TAKE THE TIME AND READ THIS INTERVIEW.
