Surely by now we’ve all seen the warnings that the World Health Organization claims cured and processed meats are strongly linked to colon cancer, leading them to classify processed meat as a carcinogen.
Despite theis warning, it’s estimated that each American consumes 18 pounds of bacon each year - and probably feel a little guilty while eating those 18 pounds.
These days people are putting more thought into the food they’re eating. I wondered if that was the reason we’re seeing so many “uncured” options these days? Is eating "uncured" meat a better option?
This article breaks down the differences between cured and uncured meat.

The #1 question I get asked is..."Where do I even begin?!"
It dawned on me that so many people have this question and maybe you do, too.
Not long ago I was spending countless hours reading books, researching on the internet, and filtering through a mountain of overwhelming information. I was finally able to put all of the pieces together and wrap my brain around the concept that what you eat does matter.
I can't think of a better time than the start of a new year to set some goals on eating well and nourishing your body. I've taken some of the guesswork out of "Where do I begin?!" and I've created a list of my 10 recommendations to start eating clean. Check it out!

Imagine you went to work every day and at the end of the year you actually lost money. Would you continue to work there?
Unfortunately, that situation is a reality for many small farmers today.
We’re at a point where the little guys can’t compete with huge companies that want to dominate our food production.
These are the same companies that are pushing farmers to use......

It’s quite simple.… they fart too much. And we’ve had enough of their despicable behavior.
I mean seriously... c’mon...have they no manners?
Does that sound crazy? Or am I the one that’s crazy?

These little piggies went to market….
When you call in your cutting instructions for your pastured pork one of the choices you’ll have to make is if you’d like the lard from your pig.
I’m going to assume that you’ll likely say no because you have no idea what to do with it.
I highly recommend taking the lard and rendering it. Not only is it great for cooking, there’s some great health benefits as well. Check it out!

Do you want to hear the funniest, most ridiculous story I've ever heard? There's a pretty good chance you'll actually chuckle out loud...it's that good.
A few weeks ago, one of our loyal egg customers was kind enough to make her colleague some of our eggs. Let's call this colleague well educated...very well educated.
After looking at the eggs on his plate he was rather concerned and wanted to know what we injected our eggs with to get them to be that color.

After I shared about my struggles with Leaky Gut I had lots of emails from people wanting to know more.
A huge thank you to Dr. Jodi Kunkel, my Naturopath, who is finally helping me heal (not just cover up symptoms) and helping share all of this information with you!
Take it away Dr. Jodi!!

A few weeks ago I received some hard news to swallow.
It was a phone call from my Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Jodi Kunkel.
While I don’t think of acne itself as a rather life threatening diagnosis I knew it meant something was still out of balance in my body. I was about to find out just how out of balance my body really was.
