Hi Mike. Why don't you post some profile and contact info so people know who they are writing to and how to contact them off-list?

Cook grated carrots slowly in milk or cream with cardamom seed, raisins, and the sweetener of your choice. Cool slightly and serve with cold whipped or pouring cream.

If you are still looking for a place, and would consider Minnesota, please contact me. My farm web site is www.chengwatanafarm.com
Minnesota is cold and inhospitable much of the winter, but has a lot going for it!

Greetings, and thank you for offering to answer questions. I am engaged in rotational grazing of Galloway beef steers. I offer free choice kelp and mineral salt, but have not been doing anything else for parasite control. Do you have any recommendations other than frequent moving, to keep parasites within acceptable bounds?

I am. It's my family farm.

Chengwatana Farm has a whole farm CSA; I believe it is becoming a common model. www.chengwatanafarm.com

Hi all. Fascinating reading and video-watching. After the winter (and heating bills) we have had here in northern Minnesota, wofati is sounding mighty good. I wanted to point out a site that I have been monitoring that has some amazing materials for repurposing. Some of these would be useful for construction, like heavy vinyl from billboards, plastic pool covers, and myriad other neat stuff. The inventory changes daily, and they offer free shipping on a lot of things. Happy building. www.repurposedmaterialsinc.com/‎

I would agree that this is the best movie ever made about mullein -- perhaps the only? I love this plant and have used it successfully to treat stubborn bronchitis. The flowers can also be used to make a tea for that purpose but they have to be dried to retain their yellow color. As several people mentioned, this is a great bee plant too.

A fairly well accepted method of planting into an established pasture is to graze it down fairly low to set back the existing growth, then plant your cover crop with a no-tilll drill into the residue. If you want to just augment your existing pasture plants, hopefully they new plants will become established before the old plants get back on their feet; then they can all live happily ever after. If you want to establish a garden plot or clear some spots to plant trees, your no-till planting might consist of buckwheat. Plant it thickly in the spring, and before it goes to seed, mow or graze it and it should have suppressed a lot of the other vegetation, and you will have a fairly competition-free area in which to dig/plant. If the buckwheat goes to seed, you will have another buckwheat crop, which you may or may not want. There are other "smother" crops but I am most familiar with buckwheat. A "chicken tractor" setup can be used to do the initial heavy grazing before you plant, too, but it can be difficult to get enough cleared that way in time to plant a significant area.

This might seem an odd question, but here goes. I use nice straw in my nest boxes and about as fast as I put it in there, my hens kick it out. Is it the bedding, or some other issue that is making them do this? Eggs get broken in boxes with no bedding. Any thoughts?
