Multiple people were surprised that I did NOT recommend freezing yogurt and kefir. Their anecdotal stories told a different tale, one where you can freeze yogurt and kefir at home with varying success.

So much care and attention goes into every little detail of our farming practices. Our goal is to provide you with the most natural, most nutritious, and most delicious food. Although we have full control on the farm, once an animal goes to the processor, it’s out of our hands. We don’t want an “ok” or “good” processor. We want an “awesome” processor, one that holds the highest standards, just like we do on the farm. We had given up hope and were working with the best options available. Then… something miraculous happened...

There’s just something about bacon. I mean, I don’t know many people who eat pork and don’t love bacon. It’s meaty and savory. It’s salty and sweet. It packs a ton of umami (a Japanese word that loosely translates to “deliciousness”). But, here’s the problem with bacon - the often awful ingredients! Thankfully, Miller’s has a solution for you, and it’s called Naked Bacon!

Leaky gut is a condition where the intestinal lining becomes inflamed and damaged. This allows toxins and bacteria to leak through the walls of the intestines into the bloodstream. In your leaky gut research, you’ll likely find lots of discussion around bone broth. Why? The answer is collagen! Collagen comes from the Greek word “kólla,” which means glue.
