Tell Congress to Support Local Meat Production

Action alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation:

We have an exciting opportunity to expand access to locally produced meat for consumers around the country!  U.S. Representatives Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Chellie Pingree (D-ME) have introduced legislation to make it easier for small farms and ranches to sell locally raised and processed meat to consumers.

H.R. 3187, the Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption (PRIME) Act, would give individual states the freedom to permit intra-state distribution of custom-slaughtered meat to individual consumers and to restaurants, hotels, and grocery stores that directly serve consumers.  Custom-processed beef, pork, lamb, and goat are covered under the bill.

Draft Proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines

Action Alert from the Weston A. Price Foundation: Draft Proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines

Deadline for comments April 8, 2015

The federal Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has released its draft proposal for the new 2015 Dietary Guidelines, and they go even further than the previous ones in attacking nutritious foods like full-fat dairy, red meat, and any food with saturated fat.

The Dietary Guidelines form the basis of federal nutrition policy and food assistance programs, so the effects can be very far-reaching.

Last Organic Outpost Event – Get Fermented!

The Last OrganCAM00504ic Outpost is a hidden gem in the 5th ward of North Houston.  As you drive into the small neighborhood there is nothing to prepare you as you turn into this 2 acre lot full of warm, healthy soil, budding plants, thriving bees and caring hands. Walking into this place is like walking into a different world leaving the hustle and bustle of the city on your heals, awaiting your return. But for at least a little while, you are a farmer. Caring for your crops, clearing weeds, tending to the bees, cleaning and organizing the property, and preparing for another harvest.  You’re greeted with smiles and handshakes from Joe, the head farmer, and appreciation from all the other volunteers that keep this amazing place going.
