Farm Updates –

Bloomberg article: earlier this spring you may remember I mentioned that the #1 threat to my business was lack of slaughter facilities. Well, Joel Salatin recently posted an article from Bloomberg news "In 1967 there were 9,627 livestock (cattle, calf, hog and sheep) slaughtering establishments in the U.S. That same year, Congress passed the Wholesome Meat Act, requiring producers to use a USDA-inspected facility if they sell meat across state lines. A mass consolidation of the meat industry followed. Today, commodity meat is dominated by large companies. Just four companies sell about 85% of America's beef and the pork and chicken markets are similarly controlled by huge corporations. By 2016, there were only about 1,100 federally inspected meat and poultry slaughterhouses in the country." "The explanations for the struggles of the small slaughterhouses vary but inevitably come down to two interrelated factors—regulations that favor large meatpackers and uneven enforcement of those regulations."

Do you follow Nature's Gourmet Farm Facebook page? I few days ago I posted a recipe using our Premium Grass Fed Rump Roast from Lorie's Mississippi Kitchen (photo above). Follow this link for recipe details and be sure to visit our online store to place your order. BTW, a Chuck, Shoulder, or Loin Tip roast would also be a good choice.
