Posts Tagged ‘March Against Monsanto’

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.

Saturday, May 24, 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.

Saturday, May 24, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m – GROW LOCAL ROOTS! Marketplace (Indianapolis City Market, 222 E. Market) – 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 bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.

As always, we also sell our eggs and grass-fed meats at the farm.

Spring is hatching time. We had hoped our birds would hatch their own this year and we could hatch a few extras in the incubator. Unfortunately, something is still in the barn. We lost an entire duck nest and chicken nest right as they would have been hatching. There were no signs of eggs, shells, or babies. I suspect our villain is a rat or ‘possum living in the barn. Now that no one is nesting in the barn, the dogs have free reign of the area to root out the culprit.

We don’t give up though. We did manage to steal some turkey eggs and have five survivors from yesterday’s incubator hatch. We also set 28 guinea eggs to hatch with June’s full moon. (The guineas and turkeys seem to be having their own issues.)

We picked up 200 chickens today at the local elevator too. That makes 300 broilers growing up for our summer markets. That’s a good thing since we are now sold out of chicken. The next batch will be ready late July.

This week we will only be at the Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farms. Come see us Friday, May 16, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at 7802 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.

The Zionsville Farmers’ Market opens Saturday, May 17 at Main and Hawthorne. We will not be there this week. The Farmers will be attending the Farmers’ daughter’s graduation from Purdue University. We will be there each Saturday beginning May 24.

Plan ahead for the 24th. We will also be at the inaugural Grow Local Roots event at the Indianapolis City Market Plaza from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. This is sponsored by the Indy Action Group and will precede the March Against Monsanto.

As always, we also sell our eggs and grass-fed meats at the farm.
