A Helping Hand From South Africa: I am enjoying an amazing, chomping at the bit, intern named Brad. I have often wondered what I could accomplish if I had someone here that would pull the same weight I do. Now I have that, or Brad sure tries hard anyway. He is also my complementary opposite, as he is quite handy, so we are making the pieces fly. It feels good to

Costs are rising on the farm and I want to explain why we will have to raise our prices a bit, the first of the year. Very few things cost less now than 10 years ago, I can think of a few but not many. Most costs are rising across the board

The world of FCF is unfolding just like I had envisioned a few months ago. After using Melaleuca products for 2 years we looked at each other and said “why are we not telling people about this?”. Then I thought of my friend who was raising funds for his prison ministry and approached him about it as a way to do just that. He said, "no" and the next day it dawned on me,

You can make a small fortune in farming, IF you come to it with a boat load of cash to get started. Capital. Something we are always short on, and this is not only a farming or agriculture issue, any business owner has this to deal with. Most go to the bank and make a loan to get started. The problem with that, as a friend of mine says…they want the money back, ha ha.

Some like it hot, some like it cold…some like it in the pot [3] days old. You gotta love July, because if you love it, it goes by faster. I do not generally mind the heat. I sweat buckets, drink tons of water and shower often. I usually go to the shower after the morning and afternoon workouts in the sauna. I cannot sit on anything until I get cleaned up. You could ring sweat out of my clothes.

The main thing to report this round is that milk production is down, so many of you who have ordered cream will not get it during this time of low production. We are so very sorry about this and will remedy this ASAP. Just know that we are doing our very best. These foods do not just come out of the air and sometimes we just cannot control what happens here,

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts, All great change is first an idea in our minds. Visualize the changes you wish to achieve. Smoked Applewood Cheddar is now available in 5 lb blocks for $12/lb. The smaller pieces are still available, too, for $16/lb which is a much better price than what we were selling it for before ($24/lb). Our cheese is one of the best buys we have. First of all you cannot get our cheese in any store in the country because it is raw, 100% grass fed with very high CLA content.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts, Who out there wants to sleep better? Have better skin? Reduce cravings? Less dry eye? More energy? and mental clarity? Need less sleep and wake refreshed and ready for the day without coffee or any other stimulant? More stamina and endurance? More overall health like when you were young and unstoppable? I have experienced all these since reading and implementing a few changes from Dr Mercola’s book Fat For Fuel.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts, Miscellaneous Farm News: We are going paperless! We will no longer be giving you a hard copy of your receipt on day of delivery. You can easily printout your own receipt or look it up here. We feel that the majority of our customers would prefer this and it cuts down on our costs and the amount of trees that need harvesting.

Hello Small Farm Enthusiasts, Our bodies have 60 thousand miles of Blood vessels which is enough in length to go around the earth twice. And our bodies pump our blood around this circle every minute or 2. Our blood does many things, but one thing it does is carry Oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Oxygen is life, without it we die. So without our blood being able to get where it needs to go we die. So may I ask a simple question, why are Americans so bent on clogging up their heart and arteries?

It's an awesome time of year on the farm. We have the most luscious grasses, 1 to2 feet high, thick, rich, deep rooted, nutrient dense food for cows. Our rye crop this year is outstanding to say the least. We stopped feeding hay, or I should say the cows stopped eating hay, a few weeks ago and for several months were really just eating enough to balance the intense richness of young fast growing rye grasses.

Since 2 weeks ago, when we put out the Melaleuca (M) Co. videos, lots of questions have come in like, “If you eat a WAP style diet do you need to supplement?” and I love questions so here goes. Our cows have a mineral box in front of them at all times http://www.freechoiceminerals.com/ which contains calcium, phosphorus, copper, sulfur, sodium, kelp, iodine, magnesium, potassium, plus trace mineral mixes that contain cobalt, boron, iron, manganese, Molybdenum, Selenium, Zinc. It contains several vitamin mixes too. So, our cows are supplemented and we eat 80 to 90% food from off our own farm so we feel like our supplements are fed to our cows and we get them second hand.
