  • We are making a Green Pastures order this week.  Anyone interested needs to email us NLT Thursday p. m.
  • I had a request for freezer beef from someone that had an email, JDSmith.  Apparently, he/she changed the address.  I sent a notice of available beef, and it was not delivered.  REMINDER, if you change your email address, and want to stay in contact with us, you need to notify us so we can update our contacts list.  I have no choice but to go to the next person on the list.
  • We had two dairy cows have a calves this past week.  One's milk has cleared up and one has not.  We will be notifying existing customers and will get them back to their levels before we add new customers.

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • I have started notifying people on my freezer beef list.  I am mid way thru February requests.  I allow a week for customers to respond with their deposit.  After one week, I send out the next group.  When a deposit is received, your beef is reserved and guaranteed.  The processing order is based on when the deposit is received, so to preserve your order you need to respond promptly.  Several have requested a whole beef.  We have decided, since we have had so many requests, to limit our freezer beef to halves or quarters.  Those having requested  wholes may request another half,and we will surely try to fulfill that request if we have some cancellations.  We want to fill as many requests for our truly grass finished beef.
  • Our milk supply has been somewhat reduced for the past month.  That is soon to change, and there will be an ample supply.  If you were on our list, or would like to be included please send us an email.  Be sure to include how much you will want on a weekly basis and your phone number.  We have four cows due to calve within the next thirty days.  We would like to get our list up to date so we can start adding in customers just as soon as the supply increases.  Our daughter, Marlies, recently bought a half gallon of A2 milk at a Whole Foods in the Phoenix area.  The word is finally getting out.  We have realized the health value of A2, grass only milk about ten years ago.  We have selected our genetics base on A2 and now have only A2 dairy cows and bulls.  I am including the presentation I sent last time about Vit K2 and grass based dairy.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYMExQNosTQ&feature=youtu.be 
  • I recent finished Pig Tails, by Barry Estabrook.  If you want to know all about how we got to where we are in pork production, it's a great read.   
  • I finally finished Farmegeddon, The True Cost of Cheap Meat, by Philip Lymbery.   It's almost 400 pages so it took quite a while to finish.  Someone at the coffee shop said they had just seen the movie.  I asked about fish and found out the film does not address fish.  Well, the book does, and it's not pretty.  It's worse than beef, chicken and pork.  The fish thing occurs at fish farms near remote islands, so there is absolutely no transparency.  It's disgusting.  Fish from "farms"is now at the very bottom of my list.  
  • Remember, Milk Cow Kitchen, by MaryJane Butter has a good chapter on container gardening.  J .Hallar, you might want to borrow my book.
  • We are still trying to figure out the pork supply issue.  Hopefully, that will occur soon.

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

 

Falls Church, Virginia--July 23,2015--Today, Representatives Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Chellie Pingree (D-ME) introduced House Bill H.R. 3187, a bill that would significantly increase access to locally produced meat for consumers around the country. H.R. 3187, also known as the PRIME Act (the  Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption Act), would return power to the states to determine appropriate regulations on meat processing for local sales.   The PRIME Act would give states the option of passing laws to allow the sale of custom slaughtered and processed meat in intrastate commerce direct to the consumer as well as to venues such as restaurants, hotels, or grocery stores that deal directly with consumers. Interstate sales or multi-step distribution chains would not be allowed.   Currently, federal law prohibits the sale of custom processed meat; the meat from a custom facility can only go to the individual or individuals who owned the animal at the time the slaughter took place, meaning that the customer(s) must buy the whole animal while it is still alive. Farmers who sell meat by the cut must use a slaughterhouse that has an inspector on-site during the actual slaughtering; in many areas of the country, this means hauling the animals for several hours to a distant facility, increasing expenses for the farmer and creating greater stress on the animals.   Attorneys for the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund (FTCLDF) worked on the bill with Massie's staff.   "Until 1967, states were able to set their own regulations for meat processing," explained FTCLDF President Pete Kennedy. "The Wholesome Meat Act of 1967 was sold to the public as a consumer protection bill, but it has wound up being an industry consolidation measure. Between 1967 and 2010, we lost more than half of the federally inspected slaughterhouses in the country, severely reducing options for small farmers. And while there were 15,000 non-federally inspected slaughterhouses in 1967, today there is only a small fraction of that number."   Demand for locally produced beef outstrips production in the U.S., in part, because of the lack of access to inspected slaughterhouses. Currently, only four companies control over 80% of the beef processing in this country; four companies control over 60% of pork processing.[1] Inspected slaughterhouses are stretched beyond capacity and the number of meat and poultry recalls has skyrocketed in recent years.   "The PRIME Act is the first step to rebuilding local processing infrastructure, which can revive rural economies and enable communities to become more self-sufficient in meat production," stated Kennedy. "We applaud Representative Massie for taking on one of the bigger obstacles to a prosperous local food system."   Original co-sponsors of the PRIME Act include Representatives Walter Jones (R-NC) and Jared Polis (D-CO). ------ [1] Heffernan, W. & Hendrickson, M. (2007). Watch how Joel Salatin explains this.  http://www.farmtoconsumer.org/blog/2015/07/24/joel-salatin-on-meat-processing-and-the-prime-act/

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE


  • Looks like we are finally going to get some hay baled for this winter.   
  • The last batch of kraut is awesome.  We have some more cabbage harvested from our raised beds, and we are enjoying slaw.  I am using the bacteria from Mercola that is supposed to create more vitamin K2.  After watching the video presentation I've included this week, you too will know the importance of K2.  Our milk customers are well aware of the value of having grass fed dairy and its vitamin K2.
  • I was going to town this past week on the highway, and suddenly I smelled some chemical odor.  Sure enough there was a "farmer" spraying a bean field.  Remember the song, The Streak.  Well, it was too late to push the recirculate button to seal out the toxic chemical.  There was about a 10 knot wind blowing south to north across the highway.  Why is it ok to indiscriminately spray toxic chemicals in a way that potentially harms someone else.  It's analogous to second hand smoke, and we all know how long it took for that to be determined a health hazard.  The "farmer" should have to at least post a sign on the highway, with enough warning so passing motorists can have sufficient time to push the recirculate button.  I'm sure the Farm Bureau would fight that, and oh yes, we in Missouri have that amendment to our state constitution (Freedom to Farm).
  • Had a Snoops on the Pigs to China for processing in my last Update.  Not true.  It didn't sound feasible, but I recall a couple years ago Tyson asked the USDA to do some of their processing of chickens overseas.

  • Milk supply will be down for two months.  I stopped milking Karen this week as she is due to calve in late August.  Even if you are one of our long time customers you should call to make sure we have some milk.  I am still milking Natalie.
  • One more week and my latest batch of kraut will be ready.  We have more heads of cabbage in our raised garden beds.  Kraut is so easy to make. 
  • Fruit so far has been a bust.  It has been just too wet.
  • The next chicken day is the coming Saturday.  If you're new, contact Virginia at raetdy@aol,com and reserve your fresh fryers.

This was sent from my friend Kit in California. Subj: Fwd: Fw: Smithfield Ham and other foods, processed in China.     .Very sad, but we do need to be careful.  I will be wearing reading glasses when I grocery shop now.     We need to be careful about what we are buying. Food for thought... Smithfield Farms, the largest pork producing farm in the USA was sold in September to China with the unanimous support of its stockholders!! The hogs will still be raised here, but slaughtered and packaged for sale there before being sent back here.  This includes labels of   Morrell, Eckrich, Krakus , Cudahay      ,Premium Hams, Cook's, Gwaltney -the same with many chickens.  They can now be shipped there, but when they come back all that needs to be labeled is that they  WERE RAISED IN THE USA.  Not that they were processed in China !!! Our great FDA at work again.  The chickens will be all processed and most sold to fast food restaurants for sandwiches, along with schools and supermarkets.  The China slaughter and processing are not nearly equal to the requirements here. *BAD FOOD.* We recently learned that Starkist Tuna is now owned by Korea , and is in big conflict with the U.S.concerning quality, safety, and records , which Korea refuses to produce. Read several articles on Google about this, and even one that was defending the eating of tilapia (but  they said to avoid the fish that came from China). Also, I had just returned home from buying  Albertson's 4-day special of 4 bags of frozen tilapia for the price of one?  Sure enough, on the top of the bags, it read "farm raised", and on the bottom in small print it said, "Chinaf..... Recently a Food inspector on TV... said he had lived overseas and he had seen the filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed in. It is enough to make you throw up.  Some foreign workers have to wear masks as they work in these places, because the food is so rotten and filthy, it makes them want to throw up.  Many of their fish on fish farms are fed raw sewage daily.  He said he has seen so much filth throughout their food growing and processing that he would "never" eat any of it.  They raise this filth, put some food colouring and some flavourings on it, then they ship it to the USA & Canada for YOU to consume and feed to YOUR families. They have no Food & Safety Inspectors.  They ship it to you to buy and poison your families and friends. Imported food we eat and the junk we buy:   Green Giant frozen vegetables are from China, and so are most of Europe's Best.   Arctic Gardens are OK so is Birdseye. *Never buy the grocery store garlic unless it is clearly marked from USA or Canada*, the other stuff is grown in people poop (even worse than chicken poop). China is the largest producer of garlic in the world; U.S. is next. *Buy only local honey*, much honey is shipped in huge containers from China and re-packed here. If the country of origin is not clearly marked, beware. If produce, ask an employee. Watch out for packages which state "prepared for", "packed by" or "imported by". We don't understand the lack of mandatory labeling, especially the produce. The country of origin should be clearly shown on the item in the store. Go to the local farmers' markets in season and keep a wary eye open the rest of the year. Please read this very carefully, and read to the very bottom.  It's important for all of us. How is it possible to ship food from China cheaper than having it produced in the U. S. or Canada? FOR EXAMPLE THE "OUR FAMILY" BRAND OF MANDARIN ORANGES SAYS RIGHT ON THE CAN 'FROM CHINA '. - SO, for a FEW MORE CENTS, BUY THE  *LIBERTY* BRAND. *GOLD BRAND or DOLE is from CALIFORNIA*. Beware, Costco sells canned peaches and pears in a plastic jar that come from China .. ALL "HIGH LINER" AND MOST OTHER FROZEN FISH PRODUCTS COME FROM CHINA OR INDONESIA.  THE PACKAGE MAY SAY "PACIFIC SALMON" ON THE FRONT, BUT LOOK FOR THE SMALL PRINT.  MOST OF THESE PRODUCTS COME FROM FISH FARMS IN THE ORIENT WHERE THERE ARE NO REGULATIONS ON WHAT IS FED TO THESE FISH. *Recently The Montreal Gazette had an article* by the Canadian Government on how Chinese feed the fish: They suspend chicken wire crates over the fish ponds, and the fish feed on chicken s..t. If you search the internet about what the Chinese feed their fish, you'll be alarmed;  eg: growth hormones, expired anti- biotic from humans?  Never buy any type of fish or shellfish that comes from these countries Vietnam,         China ,   Philippines. Check this out personally. Steinfeld's Pickles are made in India - just as bad! Another example is in canned mushrooms.  No-Name brand came from Indonesia. Also check those little fruit cups.  They used to be made in Canada in the Niagara region until about 2 years ago. They are now packaged in China. Most sold in Aldi stores. While the Chinese export inferior and even toxic products, dangerous toys, and goods to be sold in North American markets, the media wrings its hands!  Yet, 70% of North Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended. Well, duh ! Why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges? SIMPLY DO IT YOURSELF, CANADA and the U.S. Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy, and if it says 'Made in China' or 'PRC' (and that now includes Hong Kong ), simply choose another product, or none at all.  You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products, and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without. THINK ABOUT THIS If 200 million North Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods, thats a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favour ... fast!  The downside?  Some Canadian/American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from having foreign stockpiles of inventory. Just one month of trading losses will hit the Chinese for 8% of their North American exports.  Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their arrogance and lawlessness are worth it. * START NOW and don't stop, and tell your friends * Send this to everybody you know.  Let's show them that we are intelligent, and NOBODY can take us for granted. *Start reading labels more closely and buy something else even if it cost a few cents more*.
