Foods that get a lab-produced boost are no longer considered “genetically modified organisms” (or GMOs). They are now considered “bioengineered”. This is actually not “news”. The National Bioengineered Food Disclosure Law was passed by Congress in July of 2016. However, the mandatory compliance date for all food manufacturers, large and small, happened on January 1, 2022. Here's what you need to know about the new labeling guidelines that are in effect now.

Transparency. Is this a greenwashed term nowadays? What does transparency really mean? As it relates to a business, transparency is being open and straightforward about company operations. Being transparent is a current business trend that is not black and white. At Miller’s, transparency is everything.

I get so inspired by the amazing customers at Miller’s Bio Farm. One of the top customer questions that our team answers is, “How long does it last?” It’s such a hard question to definitively answer. After all, best by dates are a little ridiculous anyway. So, here's some more info to help answer this question PLUS I'm introducing our updated Shelf Life Guide for Farm Fresh Food.

This is a question that’s irked me for years. Google (and food producers too) have been little help finding a real answer. But then, I had the opportunity to chat with a food scientist about this topic. While they explained things to me, it was as if the sky opened up and clarity rained down. Finally, some light was shed on this enigmatic ingredient! Piggybacking on last week’s blog post about lab-produced ingredients, let’s look a little deeper at what “natural flavors” actually are. Then, you can make an educated choice whether it’s something you choose to include in your diet.

Our food world is overly complicated nowadays. It’s more common for today’s food to be produced in a lab or factory than with a human hand. That’s a crazy change, crazy fast. Evolution undoubtedly takes much longer. Are our bodies able to handle these new artificial ingredients? Is it better to be safe than sorry? Let’s take a dive into understanding what a “lab produced” ingredient is and how that differs from a “factory produced” ingredient. Let’s figure out what you can do to tell the difference and the things you should look out for when shopping for food or finding new food sources that you trust.

If you’ve ever made stock or broth, you know what I mean when I talk about “scum”. It’s harmless. It’s flavorless. It’s perfectly fine to eat and probably shouldn’t be given such a derogatory name. Maybe we should call it bone foam or protein puddles or broth clouds instead. So… why skim the scum?

Whether you buy gifts for many people or a few, gift giving can be pretty nerve-wracking.... at least it is for me! Non-consumerist (or anti-consumerist) gifts support the idea that one shouldn't be continually buying and consuming material possessions. We buy what we need, and that’s it. I break down non-consumerist gifts into two basic categories: experience and food. Here are a bunch of suggestions for each:

As we all well know, inflation is here and is likely to get worse. Ugh. This has kind of crept up on the farm. It’s been slow but is definitely real. This means that our prices will be going up. This has already happened a little bit in certain collections and will likely continue for as long as inflation continues.

There are days of astonishment, when we get something back from the processor and we’re surprised to see an ingredient like “spice extractive” or “organic herbs” on the label. What does that mean!? Most of the time, our processors are awesome and simply let us know. Then, we update the product on the website with accurate info. But once in a while, we are sorely disappointed. Sometimes we get the answer, “It’s proprietary.”

My family has a chat group. We share photos, life updates, stories… and sometimes we get a good debate going. It was prompted by my sister. She wrote, “Important question! We need you all to settle a dispute. Please let us know your opinion. Is a hot dog a sausage?” Bingggg. Bingggg. Bingggg. Ahhh… the sounds of a chat debate quickly ensued.
