As of last night, we are completely sold-out for April C.S.A., this includes poultry, beef, pork, lamb and goat.
We have increased our growing beds this year to reflect change. This year we have connected with a wonderful local, heritage, organic seed supplier and we will be growing some of the most delicious, old fashioned Italian summer and winter squash varieties, tomato varieties, Spaghetti squashes, vine fruit varieties..in our pick-your own garden.
Growing heritage crops that grow naturally and seasonally, without the use of artificial lights, artificial soil additives and No G.M.O. seeds. and of course, without any "CIDES" or "SPRAYS" is ecologically safe, sustainable and just plain healthy for our families, freinds, neighbors, farm members, sustainers, our soil and livestock.

Colloidal Silver: Healing Ear Infections the Safe, Easy Way
Colloidal Silver: Healing Ear Infections the Safe, Easy Way
According to the experienced colloidal silver users we’ve interviewed, less is more when it comes to treating ear infections with colloidal silver.
That’s because silver is such a powerful anti-microbial substance, using too much of it can leave tiny silver particles deep inside the ear canal, and on the ear drum itself, which can inhibit the growth of healthy bacteria, causing a temporary imbalance that in some cases leads to sensations of vertigo. This usually disappears within 24 to 48 hours after you discontinue colloidal silver usage. But it can be avoided altogether simply by limiting the use of colloidal silver in the ears to just a few drops, once or twice a day during the course of the ear infection.

Thank you to all our wonderful farm members, co-op, and CSA leaders, participating farmers, markets, artisans, and sustainers who support our mission to provide clean, pure, honest, heritage, reliable, heirloom, dependable, free range, grass fed and delicious foods to dinner tables across the country.
Educating and helping, in any way we can is one of our passions. We are dedicated to helping people get started with growing as much of their own food as possible and to being supportive, active participants with making it happen.
To be an active part of healing the earth, securing heritage livestock breeds and heirloom variety foods, fruits, vegetables and protecting old fashioned farming and shopping traditions is very important to our mission.
This year we have participated in 3 more farms getting started and 1 to expand. We are happy to share our knowledge, little secrets and traditions.
More and more people are learning about the importance of the health, ecological and economic benefits of keeping with foods grown and harvested without the use of G.M.O's, ANY Pesticides, Herbicides, Germicides and Preservatives (including, but not limited to organic approved).
Here, we grow heritage breeds of livestock, heirloom variety (non-G.M.O.) crops, pasture and continue to grow as a sustainable, bio-dynamic and solid permaculture.
Growing food naturally, beneath the bright blue sky and the fresh breeze, sharing the land with natures critters, can be challenging, especially in the high desert with high winds, snow loads, extreme heat, freezing conditions and drought; however, many many people live in the high desert, and with the rising cost of living and the economic turmoil, it may become increasingly more difficult to get clean, dependable and naturally grown food from reliable, honest and stable sources.
Again, thank you to all our wonderful farm members, co-op, and CSA leaders, participating farmers, markets, artisans, and sustainers who support our mission to provide clean, pure, honest, heritage, reliable, heirloom, dependable, free range, grass fed and delicious foods to dinner tables across the country.
10,000 small farms are popping up every year, we are thrilled to be at the heart of all the action.

Cloned Beef Burgers: "Delicious"
This was written in 2007
The FDA has said food from cloned animals is safe. Though it won't land in markets yet, cloned meat is being served at one company
The FDA is likely to issue a final, formal approval of cloned food before the end of the year. Experts say the agency will probably make the United States the first country to allow products from cloned livestock to be sold in grocery stores. "This was written in 2007"
"It's not a big deal," says Mower. "I've eaten cloned beef for a year and a half. It's scientifically proven to be safe."

You can get a government grant to grow food. Grants, Loans & Support.
Earlier this year, in response to President Obama's challenge to reinvigorate local food systems, each of USDA's 26 agencies was asked to come forward with programs that can help support this effort...and they did.
In some cases, you may be using approved pesticides, but since they are approved, you may still be able to get Certified Organic or Certified Organic Exempt (C.O. Status, may depend on income reported and/or types of pesticide use reported). Please contact the USDA to get more accurate information. http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/recd_map.html For more program information: http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/rbs/busp/rbeg.htm
We encourage everyone interested to apply and participate in this U.S.D.A. project.
NOTE: Our small green house is not part of a grant or approved pesticide study, we built it ourselves with our member and sustainer support, and only need it to start early seeds. We grow everything "Pesticide-Free" outside in the sunshine and fresh air; this is how our members, family, friends, neighbors and livestock want food grown. As a result, we do lose a bit more produce to the critters, and we bargain for it, so we grow a little extra to supply the critters too, the chickens take care of the little, bugs.
That being said, some tri-city residents and farmers markets participants have chosen this route and they have our support. We continue to encourage folks to grow to their ultimate potential and to help the supply of local, affordable and alternative food supply. They may be millionaires soon! and you can be too (LOL-LOL).

USDA data shows that women are the fastest-growing demographic in small-scale farming
WHAT IT MEANS: Women in farming is a red-hot trend. Gap fashion aside, women's growing interest in sustainable, small-scale farming is leading to farmer's markets full of healthier food for communities. And while the ActionAid report looked at women in agriculture in other parts of the world, rest assured, it's a phenomenon that's bringing food that's healthier food for people and the planet here in the United States, too. The last United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA's) most recent U.S. Ag Census showed that women small-scale farm owners are the fastest-growing demographic surveyed.

AP – FILE - In this June 25, 1945 picture, army doctors expose patients to malaria-carrying mosquitoes...
By MIKE STOBBE, AP Medical Writer Mike Stobbe, Ap Medical Writer – 10 mins ago
ATLANTA – Shocking as it may seem, U.S. government doctors once thought it was fine to experiment on disabled people and prison inmates. Such experiments included giving hepatitis to mental patients in Connecticut, squirting a pandemic flu virus up the noses of prisoners in Maryland, and injecting cancer cells into chronically ill people at a New York hospital.
Much of this horrific history is 40 to 80 years old, but it is the backdrop for a meeting in Washington this week by a presidential bioethics commission. The meeting was triggered by the government's apology last fall for federal doctors infecting prisoners and mental patients in Guatemala with syphilis 65 years ago.
U.S. officials also acknowledged there had been dozens of similar experiments in the United States — studies that often involved making healthy people sick.
