Can Animals Have Mental Illnesses?

The mental and emotional lives of the pigs I care for is a constant concern. They are intelligent, charming, stubborn, funny, playful, easily excited rascals. Each of them has a unique personality.
In my mind, there is a responsibility that goes along with being an omnivore; we must choose to be deeply appreciative of the animals who’s bodies nourish ours and we must provide them the best life possible. I am grateful for the opportunity to provide them with the life they deserve.

Last night's 2017 Farmer's Formal was a blast! We ate delicious food prepared by some of the best chefs in St. Louis and grown by amazing local farmers. This event helped EarthDance Organic Farm School continue their mission of expanding our local food food system and teaching the next generation of farmers necessary skills for success. David Kirkland of Turn took our Berkshire pork and made crunchy bánh mì tacos topped with sprouts grown by the fabulous Mary Densmore of Bee Simple. It was the perfect way to unwind after a very busy 2017 growing season.

I am so grateful to the teachers and Dr. Smith for making this an easy and fun experience for myself and the 120 kindergarteners of Leclaire Elementary. I hope the kiddos enjoyed our time together. Their questions and curiosity were a real inspiration.

Thank you to everyone who ordered whole and half hogs for this fall! We had so much success with our first butcher date that we added a second date for September 22nd. We only have one whole hog or two half orders available. **update; we are sold out for September 22nd**
We added one more butcher date for October 6th. We have two spots remaining.
The whole hog is $2.65/lb. and the half hog is $2.85/lb. plus the cost of butchering.
Send me a message and I will get your reservation set up before we sell out.

How industrial farming techniques can breed superbugs

When people think of responsible stewardship practices on a farm the idea of protecting clean air,soil and water for the next generation often comes to mind. Along with these a large area of focus on my farm is antibiotic stewardship.
The common practice of feeding antibiotics to healthy animals for rapid growth is irresponsible and in my opinion reckless.
Feeding antibiotics to animals as a preventive measure for disease rather than providing them living conditions that foster a strong immune system is shortsighted.
Antibiotics save human lives every day.
If we are not careful with how and in what quantity we use these lifesaving tools a bacterial infection that is treatable in our time could be a death sentence for people of the future.

As high-density, industrial-scale livestock farms have become fertile breeding grounds for disease, they’ve also become a major source of drug-resistant supe...

I think it is safe to say Agnus will be the busiest mama this year. She gave birth to 15 piglets last night! She seems very pleased with all of her hard work.
Also, check out that wonderful nest she created for her litter. She hollowed out the space under a very dense multi floral rose thicket; it offers shade, camouflage and shelter. Good job Agnus!
