The Value of Good Nutrition

Weekly we hear from customers who comment how much better their health is after committing to eating a healthy diet of quality meats and vegetables.

Beth has also written to share her story about how improved nutrition helped her reduce her risk of diabetes by simply eating GOOD carbs with QUALITY meats (protein) or GOOD fat with QUALITY meats. She lost more than 35 pounds and dropped her numbers into the safe zone.

Last week a regular customer told me since the lock down he has not traveled as much with his work and that his wife has fed him our meats and fresh vegetables. In about 6-weeks he lost 35 pounds and is feeling much better. All from replacing processed foods, snacks, and soft drinks with quality farm fresh foods.

Think about the risk he has at least reduced if not prevented! Heart Attack! Obesity and Diabetes! Cancer! Not to mention the lifetime of pills, doctor visits, and reduced quality of life!

There is so much misinformation out there you really have to be careful who you listen to. One of the organizations I have found to be credible is the Weston A. Price Foundation. As part of our membership they include a booklet that has a section titled "Myths and Truths About Nutrition. Over the next weeks I would like to include a section from WAP and share their Myths and Truths About Nutrition.

WAP Myths and Truths About Nutrition:
Myth: Heart disease in America is caused by consumption of cholesterol and saturated fat from animal products.
Truth: During the period of rapid increase in heart disease (1920-1960), American consumption of hydrogenated and industrially processed vegetable fats increased dramatically (USDA/HNIS).

Why is good nutrition so important? Because good nutrition supports a healthy immune system that is needed to protect you from all kinds of medical issues (both physical and mental).

Today, they want to stick you with all kinds of vaccines. When you read about vaccines and how many of them came about (as well as the many issues they have caused) you begin to wonder why would I want that for me or my children!

Here is a good reference starting point: CLICK HERE

Frankly, I look at things a lot differently now then when I was younger - that is what led me to Regenerative Farming. This includes QUESTIONING everything. For example:
- Why is the Gates Foundation the second largest dollar supporter of the WHO? It cannot be just about money with ALL the Billions they have!
- Why is the Gates Foundation so intent on a Covid-19 vaccine? And, why do they want to track my movements?
- Why has the media NOT reported on the lawsuits against the Gates Foundation from India and Africa where they killed and or maimed people with vaccines
- Why have we not seen the recent reports from Italy calling for the arrest of Bill Gates because of his ties to the Covid-19 virus? Read Here

With what I know I am very skeptical of any vaccines.

Sunday, June 14th is Flag Day! On June 14, 1777, less than one year after Betsy Ross had received the order from General Washington to make the first flag, the Second Continental Congress passed a flag resolution stating:

Resolved, That the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.

A very dear friend sent me the following picture and accompanying remarks about a positive American Spirit!


Between the fields where the flag is planted, there are 9+ miles of flower fields that go all the way to the ocean. The flowers are grown by seed companies. It's a beautiful place, close to Vandenberg AFB.
Check out the dimensions of the flag. The Floral Flag is 740 feet long and 390 feet wide and maintains the proper Flag dimensions, as described in Executive Order #10834.
This Flag is 6.65 acres and is the first Floral Flag to be planted with 5 pointed Stars, comprised of White Larkspur. Each Star is 24 feet in diameter, each Stripe is 30 feet wide.
This Flag is estimated to contain more than 400,000 Larkspur plants with 4-5 flower stems each, for a total of more than 2 million flowers.

I can't help but sing Lee Greenwood's song titled "God Bless The U.S.A."

" I purchased your eggs. They were huge. Nice firm shell and bright yellow yokes. Store bought eggs really pale against your eggs."

Farm Visitors

Since we started selling via our online store in 2016, the number of visitors to our farm increased. Then, building the on-farm USDA poultry plant in 2019 spurred a lot of interest from folks who were interested in raising pastured poultry and were looking for a way around the MS Department of Ag regulation limiting the number of chickens per farm to only 1,000 per year. Most of the folks visiting were potential customers looking for naturally raised meats to feed their families.

Farmer Musings!

Beth & I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving - and turkey if you purchased one our our pastured turkeys. For our family the turkey did not disappoint. I spatchcocked (removed the backbone) so the turkey would lay flat. Beth then brined it for a day before smoking. It turned out tasty and juicy. Before our Thanksgiving meal each of us shared something we were thankful for. Beth's sister Debra shared the following:

A Day Processing Ground Beef!

Overall rain this week on our farm was about ONE inch! Not a lot in the big scheme of things, but very appreciated. It was enough to make a difference for our winter grass as you can see from this picture. In some areas of other pastures it appears that the seedlings died after germinating back in October. An observation that the heavy dews was not enough to keep them alive.
