This week I would like to share some pictures from around the farm. The first picture is of an American Bald Eagle who has been visiting us over the past 4 to 5 months. I typically see him about four times per week and usually in the early morning while out feeding the pigs. This particular morning he let me get much closer and I was able to get a good picture of him. Fortunately, he has not bothered any of our chickens.

April 12th I took 10 pigs to Homestead for slaughter and then brought them back to our plant for further processing. Eric & i had to man-handle the carcass halves from my freezer trailer into the carcass cooler because all of the rail hangers had not arrived. We cut & packaged two pigs on Tuesday afternoon, three Wednesday and five on Thursday. Saturday, Beth and Amy started the sausage making while I made the Jackson Metro deliveries. This lasted ONE hour before the mixer grinder quit! The first week we were able to put all the fresh cuts into the freezer. Bacons and hams were in the brine (a one week process) as well as hams.

So, what IS Green Washing? According to Wikipedia Green Washing, also called "green sheen", is a form of marketing spin in which green PR and green marketing are deceptively used to persuade the public that an organization's products, aims and policies are environmentally friendly. While the term may be relatively new - the deceptive corporate practices are not. And, Green Washing posses a major threat to regenerative farms who are truthful in their practices and communication... because many people will fall for the deceptive spin and opt for the cheaper price offered. Here are a few examples:

This day and time for a politician to stand up and decide against very strong corporate lobbyist is unheard of. But, that is exactly what Mexico's President recently did. And, I applaud him for his decision. Here are excerpts from an article titled "Mexico's Decision to Ban Glyphosate Has Rocked the Agribusiness World." "Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador quietly rocked the agribusiness world with his New Year’s Eve decree to phase out use of the herbicide glyphosate and the cultivation of genetically modified corn. His administration sent an even stronger aftershock two weeks later, clarifying that the government would also phase out GM corn imports in three years and the ban would include not just corn for human consumption but yellow corn destined primarily for livestock. Under NAFTA, the United States has seen a 400% increase in corn exports to Mexico, the vast majority genetically modified yellow dent corn.

Pork Harvest Sale - Okay, so before we get started, I wanted to make sure to say how much we appreciate everyone who stepped up to support us by placing pre-orders for our pigs! At the end of the day we are here to support our customer's needs for nutrient dense beef, pork, chicken, and eggs. Our farm is only viable because of your consistent support. We thank you very much. LAMB- did you notice that we now have grassfed lamb listed on our website? I held off announcing sooner because of our Pork Harvest Sale. The opportunity came about because several customers had asked us to carry lamb and our timeline was accelerated because folks wanted it for Easter.

Last week my friend and loyal customer, Ashley, did Beth and I the favor of recording a short 2-minute video to highlight everything that's included in our new 1/4 Pork Harvest Bundle. She even went ahead and shared some of the ways that her family incorporates our pastured pork into their meals.

Last week I wrote about Your Farmer's Perspective and received a lot of comments. A sampling includes:

January 30th I announce that we are building an on-farm carcass cooler and fabrication room to complement our new freezer! Last week our farm newsletter was about the positive impact this will have on our animals especially at end of life as well as how it positively impacts the quality of their meat and our farm's long term viability. My plan was to continue the discussion today from Your Farmer's Perspective. However, I need to take a brief pause to make sure I fully have my thoughts together. Frankly, this week has caught up with me and Friday evening came way before I was ready.
