Holistic Veterinarian interview with Dr. Mercola

Dr. Will Winter does a bang up job in his interview with Dr. Mercola.   He was playing his cards pretty close to his vest at the Grassfed Exchange Conference two weeks ago. Two bottles of wine over dinner was not enough to let the cat out of the bag (there were five of us drinking those […]

Indoor Market again this fall…Woo Hoo

We were just informed that we get to move indoors again this year starting November 7th. The old Idaho Linen Supply Building at 8th and Fulton (one block North and One block West of the Boise Public Library). That will run until December 19th. After the first fo the New Year, I will be making […]

Nutrient-Dense Beef Stock

Update, I was reading Dave from Paleo Hack this morning and he had this to say… “Today I’ve got a super quick “caveman food” that I want to share with you. I’ve been incorporating this into my daily routine, and the results have been awesome — I like to call it my ‘secret weapon’ for better […]

The scientific method; then vs. now

Sometimes cartoons hit pretty close to home. I am not a scientist and am not meaning to offend any, but as an observant farmer, sometimes it just seems to work out this way. As we all know the science on GMO food being equivalent to non-GMO food is settled (bought and paid for). Well, maybe it […]

The trouble with toxins

I have been doing a bit of reflecting lately. The trouble with Toxins are the high levels we have to deal with in our environment.  There are a lot of local, natural, sustainable, regenerative, “organic and beyond” (Think Buzz Lightyear) producers who are  working to improve their soils and make them, and the products produced therein/thereon, […]

Omega 3’s and you

Who knew there were so many health benefits of Omega 3’s. When I started out grass finishing 14 years ago, I had been reading about the health benefits to the land, the animals, and humans in a number of places. Although, Omega 3’s are not the only benefit, they do seem to be at the […]

We have banned partially hydrogenated Vegetable oil but not GMO’s

June 16, 2015, the FDA announced partially hydrogenated oils (a primary source of trans fat) will no longer be allowed in food unless authorized by the agency due to its health risks. In  Dr. Mercola’s article today, I found out that the FDA banned Partially hydrogenated Vegetable oil (wow, what a switch). The driver here is it […]

“Don’t worry, Be Happy”

Remember that song by Bobby McFarrin from the late 80’s?  Had a nice beat and easy listening. Kind of a de-stressor. Dr. David Perlmutter, in his newest book, Braain Maker, describes how food affects our mood and almost everything else about our lives. The primary  “game changer” is the biology in our gut. Our micro-biome! […]

We have to take control of our own future.

How we live for the rest of our days and the future of our children and grand children is (has always been) in our own hands. Short term cutting of corners turns into a lifestyle of cutting corners. At least on the food level we have got to stop using the “bean counter” approach and […]

Be the best version of you … you can be

I just read an article on the twelve habits of exceptionally likeable people. When I finished, I said out loud, “That is just a good article. We all can use more friends in this day and age. The best way to get friends is to be a friend. I hope you enjoy the article as much […]
