Farm Update –
I want to thank all our customers who persevered through the rainy weather Wednesday to meet me for your pickup. We understand even though we try to make ordering easy and convenient that you still have to make a special trip for pickup - and Wednesday was a pretty yucky day!
Farm To Consumer Legal Defense Fund - protects the rights of farmers and consumers to engage in direct commerce; it protects the rights of farmers to sell the products of the farm and the rights of consumers to access the foods of their choice from the source of their choice. FTCLDF is a true grassroots organization and receives no government funding and little or no corporate funding.
I can personally vouch for the great work they do. One of their attorney's, Mr. Pete Kennedy, worked with Senator Hill on the SB2060 Poultry Bill and provided documentation for victories in other states to use as evidence against critics. Recently, they provided farmers a 7-Step Plan to Survive A Farm Raid (and yes that does happen).
FTCLDF's main sources of revenue are membership fees, individual donations and grants for public interest litigation from various organizations. Joel Salatin & PolyFace Farms sponsors fund raisers for them annually. I would encourage anyone (farmers & consumers) who believe in eating "Clean" to support this organization. Check them out here.
Glyphosate: A Toxic Legacy. Acres U.S.A. interviewed Author Carey Gillam who Shares Decades of Research into the World of Monsanto and its Ubiquitous Weed Killer Roundup. Her first book, Whitewash: The Story of a Weed Killer, Cancer, and the Corruption of Science, fills a gaping hole in the literature and is getting excellent reviews. Read the interview here.
Town Square Cafe & Bakery located at 129 Walnut Street, Hattiesburg is now using NGF eggs for their breakfast, brunch, and bakery menus. Jessica has a very nice cafe and reviews are excellent. Hope you will visit her soon - and she even bakes King Cakes!
The beef is so tender and juicy! Just very clean tasting beef! The chicken is wonderful! Ben, we love your products and are always satisfied! Thank you again for growing healthy forage for the animals! R. McGarrah
Quote Worth Re-Quoting – "You, as a food buyer, have the distinct privilege of proactively participating in shaping the world your children will inherit." --Joel Salatin
