Diversity

Eggs from real hens and a real farm come in all shapes and sizes.

The best thing is that each different egg is beautiful and delicious, a perfect dome of nutrients and vitamins.

Remember that the world comes in all shapes and sizes and colors. And embrace that diversity.

TV Special!!

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday bundled up inside drinking hot cocoa!!
As I wrote about before, Jean West Medical Digest filmed a segment on our farm in which I explained the process of raising poultry and why choosing organic products is the healthiest way to live. That segment will air again tonight on WAVE-3 (NBC) so I hope you tune in to watch! If you do, I would love to hear your thoughts on organic farming and organic lifestyle.

2014 = The Year of the Family Farm

2014 = The Year of the Family Farm

Here is a shout out to the millions of family farms all over the world, the backbone of food systems world wide. 2014 has been declared the International Year of Family FarmingĀ so make it part of your New Year’s Resolution to support local farms in your areas. To do this, join a CSA (community supported agriculture), shop weekly at local farmers’ markets, and look for signs highlighting local farms at stores like Whole Foods and Earth Fare. Without our farmers we would not have food on our table, so make sure to thank them by supporting them with your conscientious purchases. Happy 2014!

Coming Home

….aka coming back to the ville.

Sometimes life throws you for a loop and you feel like your on the worst roller coaster ever and can never pause long enough the make sense of all the events rushing by. But all things must end so soon you start to understand and make sense of your new surroundings. You might not feel comfortable, or at home, but slowly you adapt and perhaps even come to love the new phase of life you’ve entered.
And when you leave, you know you’ve found your new home when you are content to come back.

Sunday mornings mean taking a walk…(to put off homework shh) but also to track the progress of the seasons. While I have felt little signs of autumn’s presence, it was not till today that I knew it was here :

LYPC

I just finished up my interview with the Youth Philanthropy Council; update in August if I get accepted or not!

Anyways, I came out of the interview with a renewed sense of commitment to sustainability, to giving back to a community that has provided me with so many opportunities, and to make it a theme in my life and in my business to strive to uplift people around me. The mission of this organization is to instill a sense of philanthropy in young people, something that needs to be stressed just as much if not more than good grades and outstanding test scores. Even just this limited interaction with LYPC, as well as the social entrepreneurs I met at GSE, have cemented a commitment for social entrepreneurship within me.

And all of you as consumers can do your part too: make sure you are supporting local, sustainable businesses as this is what the future and next generation of business in America, and around the world, needs to be based on.
