The Humane Choice

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Tuesday October 09, 2012   -   By Brian

No Chance of Return

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Tuesday January 24, 2012   -   By Brian

Boneless, tasteless, skinless!

Blog: Cedar Valley Sustainable Farm   -   Saturday November 05, 2011   -   By Jody

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Tuesday June 15, 2010   -   By Brian

Raising Rhode Island Red hens has had its ups and downs for us.  We've had to euthanize for illness and we've brought injured hens back to a laying state from a dog attack.  The question of what to do when they stop laying has weighed heavy on...

That's the Paradox

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Sunday August 09, 2009   -   By Brian

We are a humane farm; our animals almost run the place. However, sometimes there is mortality.  With each loss we've had on the farm it has been hard on me and I take them all personally even though I know I shouldn't.  You don't take...
