We made a mistake. Oops! And, there’s no shame in admitting it.
You see, we have a problem. There’s simply too much ground beef. So, the Miller’s team started brainstorming. What can we do with all that ground beef?
Eureka! The farmer saw “Sloppy Joe” on the processor’s menu. So, he had some made.
Here’s where the trouble started. When we got the Sloppy Joe back, the team noticed the not-so-great ingredients in it.

Everyone’s gut is different. And, I’m not talking about what we can see. Rather, I’m talking about what we can’t see - the hundred trillion microorganisms that make our digestion (and more) happen. For reasons 100% proven but not 100% understood (as is too common in nature), the strains of bacteria in yogurt increase your body’s ability to digest complex carbohydrates!

As Wendell Berry famously said: “People are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.” This is what needs to change. THERE MAY BE A SOLUTION. And it’s called REGENERATIVE HEALTHCARE.

Being “humane” means that humans have compassion, sympathy, and consideration for their treatment of animals. Especially given the awful state of modern conventional farming, this is really really important!!! You may have seen the “certified humane” label on products. On a broad stroke basis, Miller’s Bio Farm checks all the boxes to be certified humane. But, when you get into the nitty gritty details, Miller’s only fits in with 99% of the requirements. We don’t want to be held back… even 1%.

I have this guilt within me. Maybe you have it, too. I spend more on food than most can afford.
It’s really not fair. I wish everyone could cook and eat with the quality of ingredients I have in my kitchen.

The farm staff and myself recently sampled over 20 different types of raw goat cheese… and a goat’s milk caramel. Oh my, they are all so yummy. Our favorites are now available in the store! I also went a little deeper and interviewed Amos Miller from Misty Creek Goat Dairy.
