eggs and bread. Wheat issues

Greetings shareholders and friends of Abbe Hills,

This market this week is at the Springville Community Center, downtown Springville, 9:00 until 11:00.  I'll be gone again, but Charlotte will be there with the eggs and her wonderful bread. 

Many of you have mentioned to me that you suffer from some sort of wheat/gluten intolerance.  Here's a webinar on the ancient grains:  emmer, einkorn, and spelt, and their modern cousin, wheat.  Interesting slides and nice explanations for those of you interested in this topic.  

Here's a little article from the Center for Rural Affairs about the importance of getting a good farm bill for the success of rural communities.  I always appreciate their analysis of the issues. 

Finally, a short summary of all the big food and farming stories of 2012.  Some you already knew about, some I brought to your attention, some we both missed.  And lots of little stories embedded within that might interest you.

Have a good week,
