The Chickens Next Door

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Friday April 12, 2013   -   By Katie

The moral of today’s post is that a major component of suburban/urban chicken keeping involves being a good neighbor… sweater or otherwise. Let’s face it – not everyone thinks keeping chickens is a super idea, regardless of how many benefits...

Farmers and Consumers - Don't Wait Until You Need ...

Blog: Spring Hill Farms   -   Thursday April 26, 2012   -   By David

Another story showing how oppressive local government is becoming to small farms.  The worst time to buy insurance is after you need it. It's like closing the gate after the hogs are out. I taught personal finance for 15 plus years and my counsel was...

2011: Focus on Raw Milk Safety

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Monday January 24, 2011   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

2011: Focus on Raw Milk Safety What is safe raw milk? What does it look like in the barn, in the cows, in the sanitation, on the farm, in the tests, in the taste, in the quality. How do we make is so apparent to anyone that will look - how dedicated we are...

Questions/Invitation to discussion

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Saturday January 15, 2011   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I am a positive person. I say that to say who I am, but also to myself to remind me of this. In fitting in society, to complain, to talk of conspiracy, really, to tell of how little control one actually has over their life is about the most common talk there...

Hello Stoughton Area farmland owner

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Saturday November 27, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I'm late at so many things. Squandered October I did, just did not get it together. But that's the way it went, and it has always worked out. The animals are cared for, nothing is busted, so here we are. We are losing some of the land we have cared for so...

The betrayer

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Thursday November 18, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I am the betrayer. I am the one entrusted with their happiness. I am the one that brings them in every day, knowing that one day I will not let them out. I know that day will come, and that it will be unpleasant, and that I will feel bad. But I will be...

Progress?

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Monday September 27, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

Quite a weekend of "interchange" on David Gumpert's blog, http://thecompletepatient.com I'm not sure who the 'protagonist'  is exactly, but I do know I am an 'antagonist' at times. To what purpose? To dislodge the complacency that is putting...

What I am doing for the health of my animals and s...

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Thursday September 23, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

What follows is my submission to become MBA Certified. That's Mineralized Balanced Agriculture. It is the idea of a very smart and influential fellow, Gary Zimmer, recently interviewed in Agri-View, and ACRES USA and anywhere else that farming, organic and...

Rights & Responsibilities

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Thursday September 09, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

What beautiful days on the farm. Haying is finished until maybe later October, when the opportunity of Late Hay Intoxication occurs in me, when there is an indian summer for oh, 5 days or so, the trees are turning beautiful colors. I will cut some 4th crop...

What the world needs now

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Tuesday September 07, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I sure do like hearing "Scott, you should be a writer". I do have this thing going on inside, and I am writing about all this craziness that has surrounded our life for the past couple years. Crazy situation us wacky Trautman's find ourselves in,...

Why you think you so special, Scott?

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Friday September 03, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

"Mild mannered" "Reserved" "Go with the flow" "Go along to get along kinda guy" "Apathetic" Not likely descriptions of me - or not from anyone that has taken the time to know me - at all. And it's not...

An Explaination, A Mission, A Passion and a Questi...

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Wednesday August 25, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I have, over the past few days, specifically, made it a point to be grateful. To look around me, and reflect, how beautiful life is, and how many gifts I truly receive each day. A friend of mine, Tim Williams, told me this, he learned it somewhere, that if you...

Suppose I had a vision....

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Saturday July 24, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

It has been quite some time since I have written here. I like to joke that I time travel. I could as easily joke that I have been abducted by aliens. What does that mean? Time passes, where were you, what did you do. I'm certain I was here, wasn't I? But time...

Fathers Day....

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Sunday June 20, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I received my fathers day gift yesterday. It was in the form of time spent with my younger son, Quinn, fixing the round baler. I'd split two belts at their join point, which is where they break apart. Not a big deal; a process to cut the ragged edge off, put...

Look into the Future...

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Tuesday June 15, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

Perspective. Of time; of place; of relationships. Where are we at. Where are we going. What is life going to be like, in the future. For me: I sure don't know. When you have a State that is bent on your extermination, like DATCP is to family farms, and an...

We will not go away willingly....

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Friday June 04, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I have written a variation of this to several people over the past days. It is current, it is exciting, I would tell everyone, but it is especially important for me to tell - because it is hope. It is positive energy, not the negative of DATCP's brutal attacks...

A Dairy Industry that Loathes Itself

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Monday May 17, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I wish you the best! What a nice thing to say. Hoping, believing, that good things will happen. That's not what our dairy industry is saying to Wisconsin farmers, is it? Die. Give us all your money, then die. Dairy industry record profits; 2300 dairy...

Legalize Raw Milk NOW - Governor sign that bill: C...

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Friday May 14, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

Governor, Respectfully. You need to be listening to a different group of people than you are right now. Dairy "Industry" bigshots and lobbyists - They sure like to talk about how important the dairy INDUSTRY is to Wisconsin, don't they? What...

Risk factors I see

Blog: Trautman Family Farm   -   Saturday May 08, 2010   -   By Scott&JulieTraut

I have gotten a number of responses about 'risk factors'. There are some patterns amongst them. I think you'll find patterns in my risk factors, consistent thought processes. Today I'll start on what I believe the major risk factors are. For us. Not...
