Education and Resources


These are some of my favorite links for continuing education, local foods and consumer awareness.
This website provides comprehensive, accurate information about the benefits of raising animals on pasture, a direct link to local farms that sell all-natural grass-fed products, and a market place for farmers who raise their stock on pasture from birth to market and who actively promote the welfare of their animals and the health of the land.
A wonderful website for finding and using local foods. Seasonal recipes, farmers market directory, what’s in season from coast to coast.
Real food, Real farmers, Real community
Finally! Raw milk information you can trust!
Animated videos that expose factory farms. Don’t miss it.
Find good food. Local. Sustainable. Organic
Travel guide for good eating across the U.S.
Please help spread the word – eggs from hens raised on pasture are far more nutritious than eggs from confined hens in factory farms. See the results of the comprehensive study here!
