Buyer’s Group—Group B. Jan 17- Bee Healthy STILL ROOM!

The produce for the Special Boxes has been ordered!  Truck comes in today— Boxes will be assembled Wednesday afternoon.   I still have 16 openings for Group B.  If I don’t fill them I will have a lot of produce to sell Thursday!

So, “Why should I get a box if I can come in and shop?”, you ask.  Well…

Economy!  Buying a box of veggies through the Buyer’s Group cost 15%- 20% less than buying as a Walk-in.

Guarantee! You are guaranteed a good cross section of fruits and veggies no matter whether early in the morning or afternoon. (Great for BUSY people who have more to do than shop for their food.)

Value! Where else in town can you get fresh veggies (and fruits) that are organic and priced competitively?

Beyond economy, guarantee, and value there is Committment— Without the faithful core of committed members we can’t run a stable program and be around for the next year!

COME! Be a part of the Food Revolution!  Eat healthy for healthy bodies, Healthy bodies build healthy communities!  The Farmer’s Wife

Tidbit of Wisdom for the Last Day of 2018

I thought it was Adelle Davis that said, “You are what you eat!”  She may have said it but she wasn’t the first!  

In the 1860’s Anthelme Brillat-Savarin said “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are” and Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach said “man is what he eats”.

In 1942, Lindlahr published You Are What You Eat: how to win and keep health with diet.   (That was when every book had a subtitle to give you a clue as to what it was about.)  Twenty years prior Lindlahr had said, “Ninety per cent of the diseases known to man are caused by cheap foodstuffs. You are what you eat.”  According to Lindlahr, “food is medicine,” an idea that is still extant and relative 80 years later! 

Food  is Your Best Medicine was the name of a book written by Dr. Bieler in the 1970’s.  AND it was a book that influenced me almost as much as my great-grandmother’s enthusiasm for Adelle Davis, whose books about healthy eating lined Grandma’s kitchen bookshelf.

Fast forward to the last day of 2018.  Ty Bollinger, producer of The Truth About Cancer–A Global Quest, published an article today on the Truth About Cancer website called “Dietary Supplements May Contain Dangerous, Unlabeled Drugs.”  He’s targeting  diet supplements mass marketed to “make” you lose weight, build amazing Thor-like muscles, or enhance male performance.  But, let’s be real!  People are taking supplements for their brains, to avoid diseases, have more energy, lower their blood sugar, reduce their cholesterol, and a whole host of other reasons.  It’s that search for beauty and perfection to an artificial standard, an extension of the quest for peace and happiness…for many it is just trying to feel good and whole again–

Let me share with you the last three paragraphs of Ty’s article:

“There are a plethora of God-given, natural, organic herbs and minerals that keep our bodies healthy without all the nasty side effects. For example, apple cider vinegar can help with weight loss, immune support, and stabilization of blood sugar. Black pepper essential oil supports the muscles in numerous ways, and cholesterol is the primary building block of testosterone, which is essential for men’s health and libido.

Nutrition is the most important, and absolute best way to keep your body healthy and vibrant. Unfortunately, fruits and vegetables are so depleted of nutritional value, that even the right diet may not be enough to keep your body healthy. The truth is, you likely have no idea what’s in your food. From GMOs to soil depletion, healthy, whole foods simply don’t pack the same punch they once did.

Synthesized dietary supplements aren’t as beneficial as supplements based on whole foods. To protect your body from dangerous, potentially harmful, hidden pharmaceuticals, be sure to stick to organic, natural, whole foods.”

These last two paragraphs sum up our mission here on The Farm:  raise organic vegetables with the needed minerals and nutrients to feed these amazing bodies while we live here on this beautiful Earth!  Maybe a second part of that mission is sharing the importance of living food and avoiding some of the dangerous pitfalls that rob us of our health and happiness.  Come Grow with Us…a saying I used to launch our garden adventure 7 years ago…but still applies today!  The adventure goes on!! 

Happy 2019!  In Your Good Health–The Farmer’s Wife
