Happy New Year
As you are contemplating and making your New Years Resolutions, let me put an idea out there to consider. There is a great need in our area for good quality real food products. I get emails and phone calls often (as Chapter Leader for the Weston A. Price Foundation) asking for sources as people are becoming aware of the dilemma with our food system and as they desire to become healthier. Sickness and disease is showing up in younger and younger children. Parents are struggling to find answers to help heal their children and family members. The struggle I see popping up is the demand is rising, and the supply is very limited. I would like to encourage those who feel so inspired to rise up and join those of us trying to make a small difference in our food system and community. If you have land, or want land, we are in great need of small family farms that offer nutrient dense foods, even if only on a very small scale. If you have chickens, consider adding a few more to your flock, there is a huge demand for pastured organically raised antibiotic free soy and corn free chicken eggs. Most people live in a community with HOA’s and don’t have the option to have their own chickens yet. If you have a Jersey Cow and have extra milk, their are those looking for a Raw Jersey milk source that does not exist in our area, cow shares are a great idea. If you live in dirt, as most of us do, and want green to be able to raise animals that are properly fed as well as cut feed costs, I am in the process of proving that we can have green WITHOUT irrigation, using the seasons, healing the soil, and planting and getting it grown and established when it rains and before the heat hits. If you want to know more about how to do this without a huge water bill, talk to me!! Or come to our class http://davisfamilyorganicfarm.com/classes/ this month and find out how. If you need a source for good quality chicken feed, let me know, I will pass on info for a group in phoenix that we order with. It is the best price for fabulous feed that is hard to come by. If you have products and would like to be put in contact with those looking for your product, let me know. It can be as public or quiet as you like, just let me know what you want. I would love if we could as a community pull our resources together and start helping each other so we can all benefit and become stronger together. Looking forward to a Fabulous 2013!! Happy New Year everyone!!
