“To Beef, or Not to Beef?”

…and now a word from our Well, actually a look around motion pictures about great chefs, great products, great taste, and then a few movies about companies that don’t seem to have our health as their main focus. Whatever you are searching for, there is a veritable buffet of movies about food. Over this past weekend […]

Regenerative Agrarians: What’s needed above and below the surface

A Ted talk was given recently at UCLA  that I am sure is making Gabe Brown smile. A Carbon Dioxide talk for Millenials. Thin-air is not so thin these days. Finian Makepeace and Ryan Englehart really bring the simple solution to 400PPM Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere problem…a la Gabe brown and his soil regenerating […]

What’s a person to do?

I received an email fromt Huckleberry Garden in McCall. Kind of suprised me, but hey, you can hear just about anything about anybody these days. What follows is her email exerpt … “Hi Steve, … Millie says that a woman came in who said that she had talked to you and that you grain finish […]

Friends with low faces

I just watched a video about some of the farmers who make up Maple Hill Creamery. Hey, I know some of those folks. I have seen it in the Boise Co-op and at teh Minneapolis airport. Anyway, a pretty good bit of telling their story here. And those friends with low faces…its the cows eating […]

Redmond detoxifying clay. Why is it necessary?

Redmond Trading company and Redmond Natural out of Utah sell human and livestock grades of a detoxifying montmorillionite/bentonite clay that is becoming ever more important to our ability to live a healthy and happy life. Before the invention and widespread use of Industrial toxins, Drs. Pottenger and Price showed us the need for vitamins, minerals and […]

Time for spring “CLEANING” on the farm

I brought home six tons of Redmond SR 65 yesterday. After the past 6 weeks of carbon dioxide (see previous post) and other things being put up into the atmosphere, I am going to detox and remineralize my fields. The SR 65 is 2/3 Redmond Conditioner (a detoxing montmorillonite-bentonite clay) and 1/3 sea salt (replenishing […]

Carbon Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide emissions … as seen from space

NASA has put together a three minute long video showing where and when Carbon Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide are released into the atmosphere.   Hmmm… what happens around the first of April until Mid-May in the Northern Hemisphere? I am not thinking everyone goes for a car driving vacation. I will let each of you […]

Time for a new “Green Revolution” … get good or get out and good riddance!

The “Get big or Get out” mentality has certainly left us over-fed and under-nourished. I want to see farmers and ranchers who will actually nourish: the soil, the plants, the animals and us. We can “see’ what has happened in the “after you get sick” care system in the USA. How visible is poor quality in our […]

If I could only see what is and is not in my food

Thursday morning in Ontario, I met a friend from Boise and the first words out of his mouth were, “I saw a new gadget that scans your food and tells you what is on the inside. I immediately thought of you.” I thought I was really making headway using my refractometer to make food purchasing […]

Flavor drives nutrition…wha?

I like Mark Shatzker’s books and articles. However, the name of this WSJ article from April 2015 (WOW, am I slow on the uptake) has had me thinking all year. I was always thinking the more nutrition in the food, i.e. the more minerals and vitamins, the greater the flavor and nutrition was in that […]
