Heritage Farm -- Store is Open....Raw milk back on the menu!!!!
Hope this email finds you all doing well.
Our big announcement for this week is that RAWMILK is now available again through our online store and farm truck!!! We have partnered with Country Gardens to make their delicious milk available to our customers. Joe Cunningham and his family milk a herd of Jersey girls on pasture based and grass fed diet and they also supplement a non-soy, non-gmo feed as we did. If you are excited to have this milk come back to our delivery areas please show your support by signing up to buy some today!! Because of the logistics we need to give Joe and his family a decent weekly order to keep them coming back so lets show them some love for the raw milk!! p.s..word also has it we may be in line for some raw cream and butter shortly.
We had another productive and exciting week here this week and are looking forward to more continued progress in the beds and produce areas. Friday we welcomed our new produce and garden manager, Krista Slavik. She comes to us with and extensive background in herbals, medicinals, wild forage and sustainability skills and we feel she is going to be a huge asset to the farm and our produce operations. We are getting her acclimated to the farm and our community and will share more about her soon. She will be joining us in the market booths and on the farm truck as well so swing by and say hello if you get a chance.
Last week we mentioned to you about the continuing advancement of the GMO and big Ag agenda with the new addition of 3 new GMO potato strains. I heard a few folks say that its not that big a deal but I disagree wholeheartedly. A couple of the main problems with the GMO strains is a)your body does not recognize them because they are not from the natural created order. Often times this leads to problems for your perfectly balanced bodies in figuring out what to do with them so they can lead to CHRONIC illness over the long haul and b)they are manufactured, trademarked and patented which means they are most often controlled by corporate entities strictly for profit. We are already seeing this disastrous food model in play with the corn, wheat and other commodity products in our country. Left unabated and unchecked corporations could one day control all the seeds and seed strains and then they would get to decide what can be farmed and what can't….It's bad enough now with all the lies and untruths in the labeling and marketing they do…we need to remain diligent in fighting against the proliferation of the GMO food chain. Its disastrous at best!! Read more about it here…. GMO Potatoes
