Eating Local In Fort Lauderdale

Eating food locally grown and raised by small farms practicing sustainable farming is a value that I did not expect to embrace with such dedication. I do not like to be lectured when I shop for groceries so the moral high ground approach is not the reason I care so much. I appreciate the earnestness and passion of our farmers. I certainly applaud them for going against the trend of industrial farming despite the hard labour and low profit. As a consumer, what truly convinced me is that dollar for dollar, I get much higher quality, better variety, and healthier option....more

Sunday Afternoon in the Pasture

I went to the pasture yesterday to check on all the cattle. We routinely do that, both of us, as a sort of check and balance system. If one of us misses something, the other one will usually catch it.Everyone is doing fine, and the cows and calves were all relaxing on a winter Sunday afternoon. We've had an open winter, no snow yet and not even much mud. It made for a good time to catch some pics of the fall babies:...more

Farm Friday: Mmmmm.... Expiration Casserole.

Anne Kimball Bringing Borya Home One good thing about having farm critters: you never have the guilt of throwing (almost) perfectly good food in the trash.Every week when I get home from the grocery store, I spend a few minutes going spelunking in the fridge, pulling things outa there that have seen better days. Lunchmeat past the date but not yet to the point where your face goes all scrunchy? Let Annabelle the farm dog chow down. Rock-hard, stone-cold pizza? That's what we've got goats for....more
