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,
