They’re Here!

Farmer Betsy has been sharing pics with our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/fullcircle.farm.5) friends so I thought I should share them on the website too. Shelby had her kids, one doe and one billy. They were born on Wednesday and named Mark and Megan, after my stepfather and our niece, who celebrated birthdays on the same day. Now we get to wait on Daisy, who looks like she’ll pop anytime too.

Waiting

I know I missed a post last week. Besides being crazy busy (I know. Who isn’t?), I’ve been waiting for Shelby to pop some kids. Two weeks ago we were looking at her and saying “Any day now” but she just keeps holding on and getting wider and wider. How many does she have in there? Maybe next week we’ll know.

Our morning ritual is nothing like My Morning Ritual. Ours includes two Full Circle Farm eggs or egg whites topped with either Fermenti Artisan or Borre Bothers ferment. Add a fresh smoothie or a glass of “fresh” milk. This morning I also added a homemade granola bar. Follow everything with a mug of organic tea or coffee. Each item is available for less than $1. What’s your morning ritual?

Farm Fit

I’ve decided we are going to start a new exercise program on the farm. You can get your strength training through carrying 50 pound bags of feed and 5 gallon buckets of water. You’ll get your cardio traipsing through the field, running from incoming hail storms, or swinging a corn knife at the thistles. You can complete your yoga routine or meditation in the peace of the field near the animals or underneath the willow tree. You’ll build character exercising in the heat, cold, rain, sun, and snow.

The fee for the program will be $10 per week. The payment of the fee must be through the purchase of items produced on Full Circle Farm. Participation will be at your own pace. Coaching and goal-setting will be available as needed. We won’t promise that you will become buff and muscular but your participation will open the door to a healthful lifestyle and allow you to be part of the process of the farm and your food.

This week, we will be participating in the following markets:

Friday, May 30, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m – Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farm (79th & Marsh Road) – We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also continue to bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.

Saturday, May 31, 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m – Zionsville Farmers’ Market (Main St. & Hawthorne) – We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Guinea Girl products will not be sold at this market.

This week we will be participating in the GROW LOCAL ROOTS! event at the Indianapolis City Market Plaza from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. This event is organized by the Indy Action Group and will precede the March Against Monsanto. These events are about more than local food and anti-corporate big food. These events are about food sovereignty.

Regardless of your stance on organic or GMO foods, we should all have the opportunity to make that choice for ourselves. Yet, in 2011, a Wisconsin judge determined that we do not have a fundamental right to choose the foods we produce and consume. Just this week, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) announced it will file a lawsuit against Vermont to overturn their recently passed food labeling law. The GMA, in conjunction with Monsanto, has worked against similar laws in 30 other states. It is our right to choose!

This week, we will be participating in the following markets:

Friday, May 23, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m – Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farm (79th & Marsh Road) – We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also continue to bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.
