            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*.

  • Green Pastures order will be here tomorrow.  If you ordered something it will here for pickup.
  • The martins and the barn swallows have returned and even though they were late this year, we're glad to have them.  We have a new martin house for this year, and it is filling up.
  • Several of the interviews this past week on the Food Revolution Summit were very good.  I especially liked Joel Fuhrman, Eric Schlosser, Robyn O'brien, and Alisa Gravitz on bees and monarchs.
  • I called my state senator and had to leave a message.  I guess they are real busy.  I left a question regarding spray drift that may occur as production agriculture sprays herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides on their crops.  Still no response.  Guess I'll call again this week.
  • Remember when the Corn Refiners Association tried to change the designation for high fructose corn syrup to the new name "corn sugar" and the FDA refused?   Well, now you need to be on the lookout for "fructose" or "crystalline fructose".  General Mills claims"no high fructose syrup" on their Vanilla, chocolate, and cinnamon Chex box and in truth it does have HFCS only they just "changed the name".  I just saw an ad for Heinz' new catsup and they are saying no HFCS.  I guess we'll have to fact check that.  Who can you trust???  I learned about the name change in the latest issue of Wise Traditions.  Great quarterly publication from the WAPF.
  • For you living in the city and who stay on four lane highways, I'll try to be your eyes and ears for what is happening in rural areas.  You just don't see this stuff at 70 mph on an interstate.   The Star had a front page article on the price of beef.  Most was correct, but an important part was omitted that has to do with the USDA farm policy in allowing monocropping of land that traditionally has been pasture land.  Land owners are terracing and tiling (cost shared with your tax dollars) what usually is referred to as "hill ground" and with the tax payer subsidized crop insurance are converting that land to soy and corn.  Result, fewer acres for pasture land for cattle production.  So now we have the hill ground being terraced and that should solve the potential erosion.  As I've said in previous UPDATES, it does not solve erosion, just slows it.   And the producers are NOT farming "on the contour".  If you look closely now that the corn plants are small, you'll see they are simply going "round and round", up over the terrace and thereby negating the supposed benefit of the terrace.  I guess that's easiest and allows for their GPS units to make sure they get the exact number of plants per acre.  Also, it makes it easier and less destructive to use their sprayers. 
  • I attended the Wes Jackson presentation at UMKC this past week.  I was hoping to see Roy Blunt, Pat Robertson or Vicky.  No luck.  They were not there.  I guess they are still drinking the same kool-aid.
  • Looks like this is going to be a very good year for our orchard crops.  I'm sure glad I got that Holistic Orchard DVD.
  • We have lost six huge oak trees.  It is a job getting them down and the fire wood cut out and the rest chipped.  We have a wagon load to spread tomorrow and will be planting our tomatoes.  I planted 10 hickory, ten persimmon, eight hazelnut, ten white pines, two chestnuts and two gooseberries.  I also planted ten Acai berries.

  • Hope everyone took the time to watch Origins.  If you need the link it was in my last UPDATE.
  • The Food Revolution is currently underway.  The interviews will be this week.  They are available live during the morning and are posted for just 24 hours.  I listened to three of the interviews today while watching a baseball game.  There's nothing to watch, so tune in and learn about the food revolution that is underway.   Two were especially good.  If you get this in time you still can get Andrew Kimbrell and Jeffery Smith.  Here is the link for the replays, http://summit.foodrevolution.org/replays .  to sign up to get the daily notices use this link, http://summit.foodrevolution.org/broadcasts .  Smith tells about the Artic apple and the Simplot potato.
  • We could add one or two milk customers with pick up on Saturdays.
  • The last dirt hogs were a real bargain.  They were 20 cents per pound less than just a month ago.  If interested I'll add you to my list.
  • Wes Jackson, founder of the Land Institute in Salina,KS will be in KC this coming Wednesday evening.  Call 816-235-6222 to reserve a seat.  Event will be held at UMKC.
  • Every one of my fruit tree grafts were successful.   I'm sure everyone has heard that planting an apple seed in hopes of getting a tree that is identical to the apple the seed came from is one in a thousand.  So go ahead and plant some seeds and get your apple tree growing.  You may be lucky and get an apple even better that the original.  If not,  get some scions and graft on four or five different varieties of apple and then you can harvest apples sequentially.  Just make sure the varieties ripen at different times.  You can have your own apple orchard in your backyard from just one tree.  I sure most Home Owners Associations will allow a tree, but would frown on an orchard of ten apple trees.

Turmeric is having a health food revival, and it may be for good reason!

  • The purple martins finally showed up.  Now I'm waiting on the barn swallows.  We need some dry, warm weather for a week.  Calves are continuing, had a new one this morning.
  • We could add some more milk customers.   I have had some interest in Sweetpea, but until I sell her we will have a good supply of milk.
  • We took a day trip to Macon, MO about 2.5 hours  to the north east,  Along the way we follow several miles of the Missouri river with its miles of bottom farm land.  None had been planted yet, but just east of Keytesville there was someone spraying a pre-emergent to kill all weeds prior to planting.  We were traveling at 60 miles an hour and the spray rig was about 300 yards away.  We immediately could smell the toxic aerosols.  We endured that for about 15 seconds.  I can just imagine what those areas will be like when they all get started and during the growing year with the aerial spraying.  Those living in that area will be in a sea of toxic chemicals.  My suggestion for anyone traveling in such an area is to make sure the car windows are closed and the recirculate button is depressed.  
  • We are making the Green Pastures order this week.  Be sure to get your order in so we can save on shipping for everyone.

   On January 24, a statement signed by 300 scientists, researchers, physicians, and scholars was published in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Sciences Europe,4 asserting that there is no scientific consensus on the safety of GMOs.   Moreover, the paper, aptly titled "No Scientific Consensus on GMO Safety", states that the claim of scientific consensus on GMO safety is in actuality "an artificial construct that has been falsely perpetuated." The paper—which, again, bears the signatures of hundreds of scientists and academics—also notes that such a claim "is misleading and misrepresents or outright ignores the currently available scientific evidence and the broad diversity of scientific opinions among scientists on this issue." The idea of "scientific consensus" has been repeated so many times that many people believe it must be true. It's time to sit up and take notice, and to call journalists out on their lack of professional integrity when making such claims. According to Doug Gurian-Sherman, PhD, senior scientist and director of sustainable agriculture at the Center for Food Safety:5  "Preeminent science bodies like the National Research Council have recognized that some engineered foods could pose considerable risk. It is widely recognized by scientists that those risks depend on the particular engineered gene and crop. It is unfortunate that self-appointed advocates for the technology have selectively cited the literature and organizations to suggest that GE crops, generally, present no risks that warrant concern."http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2015/03/03/toxic-industrial-standards-no-longer-visible.aspx?e_cid=20150303Z1_PRNL_art_1&utm_source=prmrnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20150303Z1&et_cid=DM69046&et_rid=861670599

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • The KC Food Circle is holding their second Expo this next Saturday at Penn Valley Community College.  Go to their web site for more info, time, etc.
  • New calves are continuing.  Will tag  them tomorrow and move them to a new pasture with more green grass.  That new grass sure makes a difference on the amount of milk the mother cow can produce.  My milk cows have increased about 25 percent.
  • We have added several new milk customers this past week.  Our new addition, Natalie, has settled in and will be a solid performer.  If you were not contacted this past week, and are interested in being added send me an email.  We may have misplaced your request.
  • We are going to have to make some adjustments in the number of milk cows we have.  Sweetpea is going to need a new home, and one of the two bred heifers, due to calf in August.  My limit is milking only two at any one time.  
  • I am beginning to worry about our purple martins.  The scouts usually come in mid March and the rest follow soon after.  We haven't seen any yet.  Sure hope they come.
  • We are ready to make another Green Pastures order.  Anyone wanting coconut oil, Ghee or any of their products needs to send us an email with your request.

  • Nature provides us with a number of natural compounds that have proven effective in controlling the division and replication of cancerous growths. One of the most promising is curcumin, the anti-inflammatory, bioactive extract from the curry spice, turmeric. Here’s that word turmeric again. Would be a benefit to anyone who’s experienced a cancer issue.

    I had read about this some time ago, but I didn’t realize the significance of the info this whistleblower had provided.  You decide.  http://farmwars.info/?p=13928&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FarmWars+%28Farm+Wars%29

            BREEZY HILL FARM WEEKLY UPDATE

  • We had our first calf of the season today.  The next two months will be busy keeping a close eye on the cows, helping if necessary, tagging calves and moving cows to the various pastures.  Our timing this year appears to be perfect for the start date for calving.  It was 71 degrees today and looks like more good weather is ahead.
  • I had a neighbor have a customer back out on a hog purchase, so he called me. and I will be emailing two people on my list for a "dirt" hog.  If you are on my list, watch for an email.
  • In a recent news article I read that Simplot had received approval for a GMO potato.  Guess why we "need" such a potato?  This potato will eliminate the bruising.  When was the last time you had a problem with a bruised potato??
  • We got our raised beds topped off and now we can transplant the cabbage and broccoli new starts.
  • We chipped a bunch of wood Saturday and mulched all of our fruit trees today.  
  • We have a new addition to our milk barn, Natalie.  She is a first calf heifer.  She is A2/A2.  Thanks for Brennan, my current farm helper, we were able to get her milked.  We needed all my anti-kicking devices, and she still was kicking.  Finally, tonight after the third session, she only kicked once.  May have won.  We'll see.
  •  Be sure to get your copy of Effortless Healing.  It has a very good chapter on exercising.
  • Pasture-raised eggs are one of the richest sources of bioactive nutrients Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/048710_eggs_pasture-raised_bioactive_nutrients.html#ixzz3TNPT0HSV http://www.naturalnews.com/048710_eggs_pasture-raised_bioactive_nutrients.html

      “Many loyal customers will likely be surprised to learn that owners and management of some of their favorite organic and natural brands are fighting against their right to know what is in their food,” Kastel added.  “We are spotlighting these companies so that consumers can vote in the marketplace for manufacturers and brands that best reflect their personal values.” http://www.cornucopia.org/2015/02/research-details-deluge-of-spending-by-opponents-to-gmo-labeling/?utm_source=enews&utm_medium=email&utm_term=2-28-15&utm_campaign=GMO.Poster.MORE
