Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts, Sweet baby LuAnna Joy was born to us on July 9th at 2:40 AM. We enjoyed an uncomplicated labor and delivery at home. She is perfect and cuter than anything I have ever seen and I look at her mom and sisters daily! We are all enjoying her so very much.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts I, Alicia, was listening in on a conversation about a woman who was having tooth pain. Apparently, a crown that her dentist had put in, had broke and it was causing her so much pain, she was desperate to get it fixed. She made an appointment to visit her dentist for the next morning, arriving at 9AM when the office opened. The dentist did not arrive until 11AM and because the dentist was already behind schedule, did not have time to fix the tooth but told her what she would do to fix it, at a later time. Meanwhile, the pain was increasing and she had fear of a possible infection.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts We got such a huge outpouring of support after we sent out our last farm report, I felt overwhelmed and did not respond to many of you but want to take the time to do that now. So, we were investigated like criminals and showed up in court with 80% of the approx 100 people in the room there on either a drug charge of some kind or shoplifting. It was an arraignment only or a "plea day" where you make your plea of guilty or not guilty. We were instructed by our legal counsel to plea, "not guilty" and tell the judge we are in negotiations with the Dept of Ag.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts Labels. The State wants us to properly label our milk. We do not have an issue with labels, per say, but on the other hand, foods without labels can be healthier, at times, than foods with labels! Here at our house we certainly avoid foods with long labels and especially with things on the label that are hard to pronounce. "If a child can’t read it, we don’t eat it", is a good standard. But the State sent an undercover investigator to buy food directly from our farm and now we have to appear before a judge, like criminals, because we are not properly licensed nor do we properly label our products.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts A-2 milk. You want it, we are producing it and it has been growing for us since we started offering it. So, the verdict is that it is working for you, I'm assuming. We try to listen and do what the customer wants. No, we cannot do everything you want as we are a small family farm but we do what we can. And you all have voted with your pocket book and said we want A-2 milk. Long before you voted (10 years) we decided it was a worthy theory to pursue and to us it is still unproven except with anecdotal evidence.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts Refining the art of making nutrient dense food is a quest we are on, here at FCF. I am proud to say that the next generation here “gets it”. To me this is key, as I am hoping my effort does not die with me. We talk about health with our children all the time. It is a subject that comes up easily, as many people we know have all manner of health issues and, unfortunately, it is often people who are the same age as our kids.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts, What a glorious time of year Spring is on the farm! If you have never visited us, now is the ideal time! Mulberrys, loquats free for the picking. Puppies to pet for the kids and baby goats to watch, their antics will tickle the most hardened among us and make you laugh. Green grass a plenty and the birds are singing. We have camping spots for the outdoors type and barn apt for the indoor types and fine cottage for the city slicker's quiet vacation spot.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts, Are you grounded? Have you heard of earthing? I have a story I want to share, then I will refer you to who I believe is the grounding/earthing queen, and you can take it from there. So, a little more than one year ago I started sequential eating. In short, it is the eating of your protein first, then a lot of healthy fats next and finally limited or low carbs, last.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts, Spring is here to stay, at least we hope so after 2 days of frost, and we have an announcement we are excited about. We did not buy any hay this year. We were given 15 cows and 9 bales of hay and we did feed that but for the first time we did not buy any hay. Our cows ate green grass instead, all winter long. Jimmy taught us a lot about how to do this 5 or 6 years ago and we have been perfecting it and getting better and better each year. This year we did it!

We at Full Circle Farm are very happy to be liars and produce, not milk, but the most nutrient dense white gold anywhere. This is said tongue in cheek as we have heard it said that if you say you produce 100% grassfed milk in Florida's sandy soils "You must be lying". Anyone who would say such a thing does not in the least understand the basics of white gold production.

Lately we have had several calls asking if our milk is 100% grass fed, and sales are thru the roof. We have had steady growth for 15 years but this is back to growth like we saw pre 08 recession when it was just nuts to keep up. One caller told us that the farm where he was getting his raw milk told him that 100% grass fed is NOT doable here in Florida and that if a farmer says he is, he is "lying".
