Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Monday March 31, 2014   -   By Katie

When we first learned about the benefits of raw milk (and the harm of pasteurized milk from non-A2 cows) we decided it was worth switching to healthier dairy products. Buying a herd share was a no-brainer first step. Our herd share enables us to obtain...

Why Raw Milk?

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Friday June 21, 2013   -   By Katie

Why Raw Milk?One of the commitments our family made as part of the Locavore90 challenge is to find local sources for our meat, eggs and dairy. This week I had the privilege of speaking with several local dairy farmers as part of my search for the right...

Is it summer yet?

Blog: Scotch Creek Farm   -   Friday June 07, 2013   -   By Carrie

I don't know if a farmer ever gets caught up with the farm. I know I don't. I have learned to be a little more tolerant of weeds as they have been helpful in drought years. I have learned that when you have 5 dozen (extra) eggs you NEED by the weekend 5 hens...

Favorite time of day

Blog: Scotch Creek Farm   -   Tuesday April 30, 2013   -   By Carrie

Morning is my favorite time of day. Being in charge of all this caretaking it is nice to have a moment to myself. Well most days it is to myself after Deaglan and my husband get off to school and work. Sigh. Oatmeal and mint tea with some honey, or some fresh...

The dairy industry is at it again!

Blog: Bindel Farms   -   Friday March 08, 2013   -   By Jason

Several years ago everyone was upset and very concerned about the growth hormones in the milk and the rumors of deformities in the cows that received them. Now I just read last week it was announced that the dairy industry was asking the FDA for permission...

Around our house, we don't really make a big deal of Valentine's Day. But this time of the year, Dan is at home more, and we had a lovely day together. So, what do a pair of farmers do to celebrate? In our case, we made cheese. We've seen that our...

Clay olla buried in the garden. Image from http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/olla-gardening-the-original-dr-78565 It’s January. And it’s cold. And I’m glad… mostly. I’m not a fan of cold weather, but I’m hoping a cold, snowy Michigan winter means a...

You're Milking What?

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Monday August 27, 2012   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

All good stories start “a long time ago…” which, when you’re a mature 23 years of age, eight years of hard work, study, and dedication seems like one of those legendary ages.  And, just like many of those great epic journeys, it starts in a very...

The first ewes have presented us with a single boy and a pair of twins (boy and girl). I had to assist a little with the twins, as they were quite large and the second one was in a hurry. The head and one foot/leg was out, but stuck, so I gently pulled from...
