We are looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday morning to help with our fundraising for Proudie! We will even have entertainment raising funds! ♥️
Simplicity can be so delicious.
So excited for our new little ducklings to arrive next week! We have a great mix of dual-purpose and egg laying breeds coming to add to our #runnerducks and our rescued angel winged #mallard Howie! Who, after we rescued him, was the reason we got ducks in the first place to add to the farmstead! 😍 Just finishing up last-minute details on the new Duck House! Thanks @therusticfarmstead for lending us the awesome green paint! The name of the paint color is “Farm to Table” which is so fitting!

Another great shot of our Warehouse chilli plant 🌶️✨🔥 ⁣

We often forget to harvest this pot so the chillis dry out and drop and we have more chillis the next bloom cycle! ⁣

Do you guys ever have too many plants but don’t want to give them up?⁣

Yummee Me’s @parvin.yummeeme scrumptious and unique gluten free vegan and vegetarian Persian cakes, pastries and hot foods cater for a wide range of food allergens, including wheat, gluten, dairy and egg intolerances. Their delicious vegan meals and treats change each week to ensure you always have fresh, new and interesting foods to try, while learning a little bit about the Persian culture. Yummee Me uses only fresh and natural ingredients with no preservatives and additives, including good quality olive oil, raw organic coconut oil and raw nuts, to ensure the food tastes great and is also good for you. #sodelicious
Although it’s frigid cold outside sometimes and the rain keeps coming down, the farm is still hard at work no matter the weather! The garden is pumping out #rainbowswisschard and #turnipgreens and those #fluffybutts are laying those colorful pink, blue, green, brown farm fresh eggs!

🤔The Center for Food Safety reports:
.
.
“A groundbreaking new study published in the journal Environmental Research found that switching to an organic diet for just one week significantly reduced the levels of synthetic pesticides found in all human participants. On average, the pesticides detected dropped by 60.5 percent after six days of eating an all-organic diet. 😮 .
Another 2018 study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that the most frequent consumers of organic food had 25 percent fewer cancers overall than those who never ate organic food. 👍
.
We know that pesticide residues are detected four times more often in conventional food than organic food. 😡And we know that eating organic food lowers the risk of impairment in the physical and mental development of children.”
.
.

40% of American children eat school lunches. 🙏🏼🙏🏼Please 🙏🏼🙏🏼let your local congressional representatives know that it is important to make the National School Lunch Program organic. All people should have the right to eat pesticide-free food, especially vulnerable children, whose bodies and brains are still developing.
.
.
Just sayin’...

I managed to setup a live stream with an old phone with a broken screen! Check out my baby chicks at. just put that in the top bar on your browser to see what the babies are up to. Can I just say I am pretty proud of myself for making this happen! Only took me like 3 hours 😄
Correction I am still working on this but I swear I'm gonna make it work💪

That's what I see. It's what I live.

I had the enormous benefit of beginning my farming career on women-owned farms. To sow my first seeds in soil tended to by people who didn't doubt my strength or ability helped me dig deeper and prove myself when I ran into someone who did.

These days I'm not so interested in proving myself as I am interested in being an example to my son, teaching and growing and sharing experiences of soil, seedlings, and the possibilities that sprout when we connect with the land."

Tag a female farmer, gardener, or general bad-ass woman who's working to grow a better, more deeply rooted and nourishing future.

Our Director Karen Clark basking in what was soon to become our herb garden last summer. On March 2 Nancy Graden will be teaching an herbal farming course in which She will track the whole process through from seeding in the greenhouse, transplanting out, tending to, harvesting and storing. The class will include specifics of planting different herbs, need for stratification and scarification, days to germinate, when/how to up-pot, days to transplant, sun/soil preferences, companions planting tips, soil building, harvesting, storing, seed saving, and medicinal benefits and uses.

Looking through the final version of the Cardinia Food Strategy brings me so much joy!
Launched last week, the the Cardinia Shire’s vision is a healthy, delicious, sustainable and fair food system for all its residents.
Its key objective is increased access to affordable, healthy food by 2026.
How is it going to achieve this?
1. Protect and utilise fertile land as a source of fresh food for current and future generations
2. Grow a vibrant local food economy which supports growers and enables people to access locally produced food
3. Enhance food knowledge, skills and culture within schools, workplaces, clubs and the wider community
4. Reduce and divert food waste from landfill and reuse water to grow
All it is at this stage is just words on paper. But this document provides direction. It shows leadership. It shows the need to work across policy area’s instead of just sticking to the usual silos. It shows what can happen when a Council talks to their community and really listens to what they want.
This document was the result of 2 years work with input from over 500 people through kitchen table conversations.
I share this here because I believe that all councils have a responsibility for prioritising a similar vision for their residents.
Talk to your local Councillor about why you believe your council would greatly benefit if they invested in more local food systems.
The more we speak up, the greater chance we have of being heard.

I look at land so differently these days. Especially after reading Charles Massey’s book Call of the Reed Warbler (well half of it. I’m still making my way through it 😁). This land feeds and sustains us. Without it we are in serious trouble.
Sure, the rate of innovation is great at present with food being “grown” in Petri dishes, or in vertical gardens inside shipping containers, or even adding insects to our menus.
I just can’t get my head around it though. Food comes from the earth. From the soil. There is a connection with all of nature with food production.
Which is why our land really is so precious.
Which is why we need to protect what arable land we have left and take care of it.
Stop clearing it. Stop spraying it with chemicals. Stop degrading it. Stop hurting it.
Our food comes from the land.
I think many of us have forgotten this.
Where our food comes from is likely the furtherest thing from our minds when we’re blinded by the bright lights at the supermarkets.
We’ve lost that connection.
And because of that it’s easy for us not to connect the dots between what we put it our mouths (multiple times a day) to the soil in which it’s been grown.
One great place to start is to learn more about regenerative agriculture and support farmers who grow and produce food using these methods.
Because we can’t make more land. But we can nurture, respect and regenerate the land we’ve got.
I have enormous gratitude to the farmers who take on this extremely important role of taking care of the land for us, and future generations. 🙏
Looking forward to meeting all our amazing new members this summer!

Bumblebee tomatoes grown with Reiziger Nutrients. What I'm impressed ⁣
with is the low concentration of Reiziger - 0.75ml/L A and the same from ⁣
the B bottle = very cost effective. Grown with Fytocell media in fabric ⁣
pots - a very fast hydroponic method which is not a method for new ⁣
growers due to the fast evaporation! Growth, flowering and fruiting is ⁣
great, with yummy tomato flavours we're sharing with everyone here at ⁣
the shop! ⁣

When you join Fainting Robin CSA you don't just get a farmer you get a baker too. I have been having fun lately experimenting with 5 minutes a day artisan bread and I have been really happy with the results. I don't have a lot of time for baking but lately we have had fresh baked bread every morning in our house

WEI has been producing bountiful leafy greens event throughout the quietest part of the year! Over he past years we have been generating produce with our aquaponics system but this year we’ve been intensifying our greens production in our winter hoop houses. Check us out on Facebook and our website to learn more! #womenwhofarm #foodsovereignty #environmentaljustice #foodsystem #goodfood #foodie #organicfarming #wwoofing #wwoofUSA #femalefarming #womeninagriculture #femmefarm #csa #farmersmarket #mnfarmers #mnfood #minnstagram #thankyoufarmers #twincitiesfood #mpls #wei #foodsecurity #foodjustice #shegrows #womeninag #localfoodforlife #whywegrow #changeishere
Fruits and vegetables in the U.S. taste bland to me.
.
.
.
🇮🇶 In Iraq, I ate the most flavorful watermelons, pomegranates, and eggplants 🇸🇻 El Salvador and 🇻🇪 Venezuela spoiled me with perfect pineapples, papayas, and passionfruit 🇲🇽 Mexico provided ruby-red tomatoes and strawberries that tasted even more perfect than they looked 🇫🇷 French raspberries didn’t even survive my walk through the market because they were like eating candy.

Meanwhile in Gilead, produce is pretty blah IMO. But why? I’m not a farmer, but here are some suspicions - @sylvanaquafarms (aka, #FarmerBae) please chime in to correct me or expand:

SCALE: Co-ops and family farms outnumber large agribusiness in many of the countries that I lived in. Smaller scale usually means sustainable production methods which likely positively impact quality.

TECHNIQUE: Big Ag in the U.S. is allowed to use chemicals such as glyphosate that are banned elsewhere. We know they can be harmful to our health, but could they also impact taste? The University of Caen Normandy conducted a blind test in which participants tasted wine made from organic and conventionally grown grapes; 77% of the time, the organic wine was preferred.

CONSUMER HABITS: Overseas, I ate what was in season - there simply wasn’t a constant availability of everything all the time like in the U.S. Ever notice that strawberries taste like rocks in winter, but amazing in late spring?

Now that I’m back in 🇺🇸 Gilead, I try my best to:

EAT LOCAL to support small farms and minimize my carbon footprint.

EAT ORGANIC because chemicals are scary. Full disclosure: I don’t buy organic everything because it’s expensive, but I do follow the Environmental Working Group’s list of foods that you should buy organic if possible.

What’s your strategy for healthy, flavorful, affordable food? 🥦🥕🥬🍎

I was working on a new little duck house for our #cayuga ducks and #welshharlequin ducks which will be arriving later this month 🦆💚🦆 And I turned around to take a little break and the sunset greeted me with the most beautiful smile on its setting face...I couldn’t help but capture the moment. Lessons learned: Stop and smell the roses every once in a while, it’s good for your health and it’s just too plain beautiful not to stop and admire 😍

Happy Chinese New Year!
Getting ready for this summer. Been doing lots of planning. People often think farming is just putting seeds in the ground but it's a whole lot more. Garden planning, seed ordering, recruiting new members, caring for livestock, paperwork, paperwork, and more paperwork. Not to mention the three year old whole dropped off that delicious plastic breakfast for me😄

Table for 2
Shannon Whamond of @hillviewfarms: “Despite the gruelling hours, ever-evolving to-do lists, and perpetual state of uncertainty that is inherent in this industry... I know that I am privileged to call myself a farmer and I am determined to use this title to do my part in bettering the world around me. Yes, sometimes I get overwhelmed with the big picture of it all - it's hard not to… we are up against a greed driven, industrialised food system that fuels the impending threat of climate change. It is easy to become discouraged with the knowledge of this machine at work, while meanwhile I’m just over here scrambling to find time to keep weeds from overtaking my farm. It can be a lot, but one of the many lessons that farming has taught me is that the tiniest acts of compassion have the potential to make big impacts, and I feel strongly that we are working towards a greater goal. It’s more than providing food, it’s connecting our community to the planet for a sustainable future.” via #womenwhofarm #femalefoodheros #rolemodel #womenfarmers #womeninag #farmlife #farm #farmersmarket #iamamodernfarmer #organicfarming #smallfarm #knowyourfarmer #meetyourfarmer #community #foodsecurity #foodjustice #celebratingwomeninagriculture #localfoodforlife #womenfarmers #changeishere #whywegrow

Its still the middle of the winter but WEI is still farming in our hoop houses! We are also beginning to organize our 2019 season of the North Circle Online Farmers Market! If you’re not familiar, North Circle is our market made up of 20 partnering farms from East Central Minnesota. We offer a wide selection of seasonal produce throughout the growing year, in which customers place orders online at the beginning of the week. We then organize your produce for you and deliver it to a drop site of your choice to be picked up every Friday.

We started this market with the goal to foster a regional food system that generates a community. We want to have a local alternative to industrial food where you can meet your farmers, support small family farms, and know that your produce is actually organic, sustainable and beyond. More information can be found at: http://northcirclefoodhub.com
