Can It Really Be That Simple?

Farm Update –
Today I want to introduce you to three documentaries found on Netflix. They are well worth your time.
What if most modern diseases are really just symptoms of the same problem? The Magic Pill follows doctors, patients, scientists, chefs, farmers and journalists from around the globe who are combating illness through a paradigm shift in eating. And this simple change – embracing fat as fuel.
LOOK & SEE: A Portrait of Wendell Berry is a documentary film of the world as lensed through the works of farmer, writer and activist Wendell Berry.
Shot across four seasons of farming, this documentary features interviews and observations about writer Wendell Berry’s agrarian lifestyle.
A vital investigation of the economic and environmental instability of America’s food system, from the agricultural issues we face — soil loss, water depletion, climate change, pesticide use — to the community of leaders who are determined to fix it. Sustainable is a film about the land, the people who work it and what must be done to sustain it for future generations.

Quote Worth Re-Quoting – “Always in the big woods when you leave familiar ground and step off alone into a new place there will be, along with the feelings of curiosity and excitement, a little nagging of dread. It is the ancient fear of the Unknown, and it is your first bond with the wilderness you are going into.”. Wendell Berry
As always, thank you for supporting our regenerative, local farm.
