Happy belated Earth Day! Yes, you can help save the earth through food! Your food choices make a big impact! When you eat truly natural and pasture raised foods, you can taste the difference. The flavors are stronger, the textures are more pronounced. This is starkly different from the eerie consistency of conventional and industrialized food. Describing tastes and flavors can be a challenge. I know the struggle is real, because I hear it from customers all the time. Let’s see if I can provide some guidance on describing taste. Because discussing your yummy nutritious food with others is... well... fun.

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.

Although the United States is considered one of the wealthiest and most powerful countries, it’s certainly not the most healthy. 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.

I was chatting with someone recently who casually mentioned to me how great buying day old chicks from a hatchery is, because they come to the farm already vaccinated. Wait. What!? This caught me by surprise… but it really shouldn’t have. I mean, we vaccinate day old human babies. Of course day old chicks are, too! I had to learn more.

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.
But then I got to thinking. I realized that I’m buying more than food.

You may have heard about einkorn flour. Maybe you’re gluten intolerant, maybe you’re really into nutrition, maybe you’re a wheat connoisseur, or maybe you’re a real food enthusiast. No matter your background and interests, you may benefit from einkorn flour, and here’s why.

Americans are infatuated with the nostalgia of farm life. They are similarly fascinated with the Amish.
In reality, farming isn’t very glamorous. Being Amish certainly isn’t glamorous. But being an Amish farmer is absolutely rewarding.
Here’s a peek into what an average day on an Amish farm looks like...

The pandemic has exposed major weaknesses of many of the American systems we rely on. And, one of those systems is the agricultural system, specifically meat.
You see, four huge companies control 85% of the American meat industry - Tyson, Cargill, JBS, and Smithfield. It’s monopolistic. When a part of the supply chain goes down, the entire system breaks. And, it’s the farmers, animals, and consumers who take the hit.

Every culture and every family celebrates the holidays differently. Let’s take a peek into how farmer Aaron and his Amish community enjoy Christmas.

Growing up, I would go to my Grandma’s house for Christmas. It was basically the same menu every year. I remember the sound and feeling of cracking walnuts at the table, the spice of her mashed turnips on my tongue, and the smell of the brown sugar glazed spiralized ham baking in the oven.
Oh that spiralized Christmas ham!
But... as I got older and became more aware of the healing powers of food, I began to think twice about that ham.

The holiday season is here. The spirit of giving is upon us.
For many Americans, the Christmas season is wrought with materialism. Every year I struggle with this. I mean, we really don't need more stuff.
Why not give a non-material gift? Food is always a good gift option. It is a yummy experience and, when sourced properly, also a gift of health and nourishment.

At this time of year, spend some time reflecting on what we are thankful for.
Here's a special note from the farmer and his family...

Because we care about the health and well being of the next generation, sustainable packaging has been on Miller’s radar for years. Honestly, we would have made the jump already... if it wasn’t such a challenge.
