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?
This week, we will be participating in the following markets:
Friday, June 6, 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 some 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.
Tuesday, June 10, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m – Decatur Township Farmers’ Market (5106 S. High School Road) – We’ll have lots of eggs and some pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.
We will not be at the Zionsville Market this week. We have yet another graduation, this time the farmers’ son graduates from high school. Please visit though. I understand it is Strawberry Shortcake Day (Saturday, June 7, 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m – Main St. & Hawthorne).
As always, we also sell our eggs and grass-fed meats at the farm.

One of the several things missing in today’s “all about me” society is a lack of community.  A strong community with a full complement of tradesmen and professionals, each supporting the goals of the other, is important even in an individualistic culture.

One of our dreams is to create and surround ourselves with a farming community, a community of like-minded individuals raising their own food and complementing the needs of their neighbors.  We recently found a wonderful example of such a community in Cody and Dawnnell Holmes of Real Farm Foods.  They own a rather large ranch near Norwood, Missouri comprised of several families, each with their own enterprises raising cows, or sheep, or dairy goats, or meat goats, or laying hens, or garden vegetables, and so on.  You get the idea.  Such a community is also a great way to provide the support to get young people and newbies into farming.

Building communities of this nature will add real value to the land and will complement the value of surrounding towns and cities.  A certain Contrary Farmer thinks we may be on the verge of such a community movement.  Your local farmers and business owners are part of that movement, whether they are located out on the farm, in the small town, or in the large city.  Help build a community of value by showing your local business owners how much you value them and the services they provide.

Join some of your local farming community members at the Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farms this Saturday, January 25.  Betsy’s Kitchen will be offering Paleo pumpkin muffins, Paleo Almond Delight Power Bars, and Paleo bread.

As always, we also sell all of our grass-fed meats at the farm.
