Cute Goat Commercial and More Problems For Small Dairy Farms

Sorry for the lack of posts but I have been sick the last week or so. There are some new happenings on the farm and things I want to write about but for now I am going to have to leave you with this cute goat commercial. I don't really get what the goat or the frog is saying or even why the goat has a frog on her head (maybe I am not supposed too?) but it made me smile...between coughs and sneezes!

In MUCH LESS cute news, actually quite sad and scary news... the Henwhisperer writes about how the FDA is kicking around two family dairy farms. They can't sell their cheese and are at risk of going out of business, but she also provides info on what we can do to help! I don't know about how other people feel but these guns drawn, over the top raids on family farms and raw food stores sure put a very scary and dark cloud over the dream and prospect of starting a like farm enterprise or even the prospect of selling milk from our farm at some point in the future, even strictly with-in the guidelines of the law. I guess that is what they want though. Good, honest people just trying to make it on the family farm are treated like drug dealers. Very sad!

It scares me as well since, we sell our eggs as 'science' projects to help teach others about raising a chicken from the egg.

Sad really,
How the industrialized food companies can 'get away' selling products which are in fact more dangerous than a family's farm item.

Get well soon,
