            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • What a year for garlic.  Debra pulled some that had escaped from our garlic bed and they are awesome.
  • Peaches, yes our two trees were full.  I removed a bunch several weeks ago in order to have enough space for bigger fruit.  They are very nice.  Pie and several batches of jam so far.  Will do some canning and pickling.  And blackberries are starting, and there are a million red ones.  We have already picked several quarters.
  •  If you had a dirt hog processed at Nadler's be sure to check your processing costs.  A half should be 80-90 dollars and a whole maybe 160.   Some people were over charged.  If you have a question, be sure to contact Nadler's.
  • Those of you that received an email regarding the next ground beef pick up need to check your emails frequently this week.   I will know on Wednesday how many pounds I will have, and will notify those who can pick up on this Saturday.
  • I am including a link for a screening of the film Vaxxed.  Hopefully,  we can get the pre ticket sales sufficient for them to screen the film.  We went to the see the film two weeks ago in Leawood and the Dr Wakefield and two of the people in the film were there for a Q & A after the film.  I would recommend seeing the film.  It's amazing how the media has characterized and demonized the film.   https://gathr.us/screening/15690

 This little device is cheap to create, and has been used by the US military on bases in malarial zones with fantastic results. There are many types of Ovitraps you can create, some are easier than others but require poison that is not readily available to a lot of people (like in Canada). This one does not require poison and works to effectively kill off the next generation of mosquito before they can bite you. According to some reports, after 6 weeks use this is as much as 98% effective! http://www.instructables.com/id/Mosquito-Killing-Ovitrap/  May be an answer for the Zeka virus!!!!

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • Have you noticed how much wild garlic is along the road sides this year??  Is Mother Nature wanting to correct her health.  We have a lot of unhealthy soil.  Too many chemicals and too much uncovered ground.  Oh yes, it's mostly covered now, but in three months it will be brown with no carbon sequestration occurring. We have an interesting experiment in the local area.  There is a piece of ground near that has a portion with too much slope to allow cultivation without terracing.  Solution?  Plant a combination of cover crops last year, spray kill them this spring and this provides enough litter on the surface to allow the planting of soybeans.  Since soybeans tend to loosen the soil significantly, it will interesting to see the next step.  Oh well, the guy with the tractor gets another 6 acres of hill ground to plant.  
  • We have a ground beef animal going in on Jul 5.  Depending on the yield, we should have enough to fill everyone's request. Pick up will be Jul 16.  I will know how many pounds I have on Jul 14.  WATCH YOUR EMAILS THAT WEEK.   THERE MAYBE SOME LAST MINUTE EMAILS.
  • Freezer beef is progressing.  Remember, this year we require a $100 deposit to get your name on the list.
  • We are all caught up on our Dirt Hog list.  That last hog was a Berkshire cross.  They have great meat. 
  • I'm including a lot this week on GMO labeling as next week may be a very DARK week.  Even our local new newspaper editor has drunk the "kool-aid".  You can tell by  the his words he uses.  They are the same talking points used by and promulgated by the  corporations against labeling.  The local paper even had a lengthy editorial written by the president of the Missouri Farm Bureau.  I remember the words of a prominent ag writer who cautioned,"just remember the Farm Bureau is an insurance company, first and foremost".

GMOs and Glyphosate Safe?

**************************************************

Let freedom ring! From the green mountains of Vermont to the forests of Maine, to the rolling hills of Connecticut and the beaches of California, we have stood up these past years for one simple thing - the basic constitutional right that mothers and fathers know what’s in the food they're feeding their children and that we, as Americans, can walk into a grocery store and determine by personal, individual and sovereign choice the foods that we wish to eat. No one! Not a single corporate executive, not a gaggle of incompetent Senators, nor an army of corrupt lobbyists have the right to deceive us and our fellow citizens about the food that we should eat. No matter what they say, no matter what lies they tell, We, as citizens, have this right, not the corporations and those who would deceive us for their own personal gain. And yet while we celebrate this truly historic victory in Vermont, we could be just a few days away from seeing this law reversed by a federal compromise bill brought to the table by these very same corporate interests - a bill masquerading as a federal GMO labeling bill, that fails to deliver what 98% of the American people have asked for. Here is how your senator voted on the preliminary vote.  Did we used to say, “We have the best government that money can buy”?  Well, maybe, just maybe we have the “worst government” that money can own. Scroll down for the vote count. There were 68 “yeas” and 29 “nays”. We’ve also included the amount of money each Senator has received from agribusiness. The average agribusiness contribution for “yes” voters ($867,518) is two-and-a-half times more than the average for "no" voters ($350,877).  https://action.organicconsumers.org/content_item/oca-email?email_blast_KEY=1352333

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • I sent an email today to everyone on my list for ground beef.  If you did not get that email or want to be on the list, send me an email and include the amount you want to reserve.  
  • We had our latest ground beef pick up yesterday, and even though it was quite hot everyone was here within the thirty minute window.  
  • I have been watching ground beef prices closely and our prices are on the low end,   Natural Grocers are still at $9.49 and several independent web sites have theirs at $7.00.  Those are single purchase prices whereas ours have a 10 pound minimum.  Normally, a quantity price is less per unit of purchase.  Our price this year is $5.25/lb.  Last year it was $5.50.
  • Remember, anyone wanting freezer beef (quarter, half or whole) this year needs to send us a $100 deposit to get yours reserved.  
  • Dirt hogs and the market lamb go to the processor tomorrow.  Those on that list will be getting an email on Tuesday with the costs and directions for contacting the processor.  Check your emails.

  • Those of you that recently received an email regarding ground beef need to watch for an update this Thursday.  I'll have the final amount available and will notify you of the pick up  time.  It will be this Saturday  from 12 to 12:30.  Due to the forecasted warm weather we need to get it transferred to you as quickly as possible, so you can get home to your freezer.   We have scheduled another  beef for July 5, so the others on my list will be notified for that one.
  • Those getting a Dirt Hog will want to check out the link for making your own bacon.  You don't need the "pink curing salt #1" unless you want pink store bacon and the associated nitrates. Those hogs go in on June 20.
  • We have the best pastures this year ever.  Also, the hay fields were great.  I don't if the reason was using the pasture renovator or not, but  I did not renovate 15 acres in one hay field and it was not nearly as good.  
  • Anyone interested in a package deal for three A2 Guernsey milk cows and an A2 Guernsey bull?

  • Martin houses are full.  I'm adding two more poles for next year.  
  • I think I'm caught up on beef orders.  Our 2016 harvest has started.  We have two going in June 6.  Is there someone with the last name of Craig that has requested a beef?  I have that filed in two places and I think one is incorrect.
  • Those wanting freezer beef this year need to send a $100 deposit and I will add your name to the list. 
  • I just got a call from one of my dirt hog producers.  I have some names on my list.   If you want great pork email me and I'll add your name.
  • We got a bee swarm recently.  Hopefully, we'll get some more.  Bees are scarce.  I rarely see any on the white clover as I mow.  I used to see many.
  • We planted a new strawberry bed this spring and didn't expect any berries for the first year.  Guess what, we are having a bunch of great berries.  They actually taste like a strawberry and are a deep red throughout.  Store ones are just red on the outside.
  • Anyone know someone that would like have a family A2 dairy cow.  We have a couple for sale.  We are still slowly downsizing.
  • I just found out in the latest issue of ACREs magazine that they have a new web site, www.ecofarmingdaily.com .  Here is the link to the very good interview they recently had in their magazine with Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride,  http://ecofarmingdaily.com/interview-natasha-campbell-mcbride-on-gut-health/ .  Be sure to take time an read this important interview.   Also, check out the web site.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • The purple martins finally returned this past week.  We added another level of gourds and they are already occupying some of them.
  • I think we have finally two pairs of blue birds in our blue bird houses.  We have about a dozen houses on the lane to our house and for the past several years we have just had sparrows.  It's a constant battle cleaning out the houses.  
  • Natalie had her calf.  It is the best bull calf I have ever had.  He will be a keeper.  I have two Guernsey bulls now.  One is spoken for and they other is four years old, so I'll need a replacement and Romeo is going to be the one.
  • I posted in a previous UPDATE that I had purchased a pasture renovator.  I have been over all my pastures.  The purpose is to break the compaction caused by thousands of hooves over time.  Each tooth/spike is about 5 inches wide and 9 inches long, tapering to a point.  I have poked a zillion holes in the ground, and as you are probably aware when ground dries, a crack will become wider and wider.  Well, I now have ,because of the dry weather we've had the past three or four weeks, a zillion little ponds in my pastures.  If it rains tonight, and it is forecasted for the next three days, I will capture a bunch of water and guess where it will go?  Right, into those zillion small ponds.  That along with my pocket ponds and berms will go a long way in drought proofing our farm.
  • Anyone making their own ice cream will want to know Debra's secret.  It is the best ice cream I've ever eaten.
  • There may be some ground beef in the near future.  Watch for an email.
  • Did anyone make a beef deposit with a check number 7550?
