Clearing trees and making space for the new

bigtree

During summer time I take the time to begin making new arrangement at our farm, this year we have several old overgrown oak trees in the yard so we have decided to trim them and cut some of the over grown branches. At first I took on this project myself with a manual saw, I thought not problem but then after few branches I realized this was going to take me several month to finish. Time I couldn’t afford to spend especially because I have many dwarf goats that need to get milked not to mention my garden is no where near where its suppose to be so there’s still a lot of prep work I have to do.

I decided to call a tree care company the owner whom I met several weeks ago at farmer’s market. He has an operation in several Oakland County cities, the main website on his business card was http://www.bloomfieldtree.com/

Again this is why it pays to do business with somebody you know because he came out the very next day with crew of 3 and he finished the job for me real quick. While I sat back and did my gardening. i was blown away at how fast everything was finished and things got cleared away so there was no mess afterwards.

If you have never used tree service company before, after this experience I actually highly recommend it because they are so very quick to give clients with big time savings in money and time. I mean you should see much much faster their professional chainsaws cut through trees than my saw that I was using. It was cutting through the big branches like butter!

Speaking of which, few days ago I made some homemade butter and boy was it delicious. It makes a huge difference when you actually use grass-fed goat or cow milk to make the butter, it turns much more yellow in color and the taste is just marvelous.

We know that there is nutrients because you feel much better afterwards and I have read various articles stating that darker yellow represents higher vitamin content specifically vitamin A and K2.

Vitamin K2 is a new type of vitamin that was discovered and it has the ability to transport calcium into bones and teeth. I have found that there’s few things that’s required for strong bone and teeth. Vitamin D, A & K2. When these vitamins are present in our system, our bones seem to get stronger and even cavities can be reversed.

I am all about reaching the absolute best health and I sometimes will spend great deal of time in my research and money trying various projects and in all my studies I have found Vitamin K2 to be most interesting. More on this in upcoming blogs.

Spring Cleaning

Spring is upon us and for me it is time for long awaiting Spring cleaning at the garden, this has been 3 week process and we are finally finished. Ever since I was a kid I had to help my parents with Spring cleaning from morning to dawn for few weeks in every spring. I always hated doing it and would much rather work on the farm on my garden or playing with animals.

Fortunately even though I hated Spring cleaning, I gained the understanding of the importance of it from young because when this time of the year rolls around I very naturally get to work on Spring cleaning and this year its a much needed one.

This year I was determined to get rid of some of the “antiques” from the yard like below picture

although we really enjoy these sorts of things in the yard, some of it was just time to go. There is only so much Antiques you can hold on your lawn before you run out of space.

We had to hire a towing company to do the job for us, fortunately we knew a friend of ours that was willing to do it for very reasonable price. So that was great

While Spring cleaning the barn we found many old stuff that brought back a lot of nastalgic memories, and it was pretty fun process. Some were things I remember seeing when I was in grade school, it is pretty amazing those things never really leave your memory. Just holding the item seems to transport you back to those times as if you just entered a time machine.

As the spring cleaning proceeded we made big headway in the first week, using our hands and sheer hard work removing much of the unneeded misc from yard and taking care of brushing the barn clean.

In week two we took care of the big stuff, some we hauled using our tractor the other junk we had to use the towing company but the key thing was that we got it done and out of the yard, this made a big difference in our lawn and we are very happy we did it because this is something we’ve been putting off for many years and we finally did it! and It was so bad as we thought. The towing guys were of great help for us. They were great guys too, we made them some home made lemonade which they thoroughly enjoyed, and left them a fat tip for their troubles. Their company is called Southfield Towing, we met them when they came to one of the cheese making class we attended.

The third week was a mix of cleaning rest of the things up and re-arranging things so that we minimize making a mess down the road. Being organized is still a trait that I am trying to master, oh boy is it a challenging one for me. But I will just keep working at it and improve on it over time. So spring cleaning has been a success and we are so glad to finally get back to our favorite thing, tending the garden and working on the farm and cows

On another note…

Yes and the cows are enjoying the fresh green grass!! This means fresh new raw dairy products for you!

Why Raw Milk is Good for you

cow

Hi my name is Carrol and I am a big proponent of Raw Dairy products.

Let me explain how I came to know about the power of raw milk. 10 years ago I was very sick and weakly, at the time I was diagnosed with Fibrmyologia which I do not wish any mortal being to ever go through.

Back then I didn’t have enough energy to even get out of bed. The whole body was ridden with aches and pains and I felt like my body was concrete, heavy and immovable. I went around in Wheel chairs to doctors after doctors that gave me powerful medication including morphine. These drugs gave me temporarily relief but with nasty intoxicated like side effects, I couldn’t think straight and i was in constant state of daze and haze, sometimes I couldn’t even remember where I was or who I was.

It was a scary time in my life and I had thoughts of ending it all. Just remember those times is too real and it makes me shudder in fear. I thought I was eating healthy, the standard American diet but I thought I was being healthy by eating the fruits and vegetables and cutting out all saturated fat.

In moments of desperation I tried all kinds of diet you can think of. From Raw Food, vegan to various fasts including 14 day water fasts. They all had effects on the body and the fasts seems to help but nothing would quite take out the pain and each time I did the fast I felt weaker and weaker, in hindsight my body was dieing from mal-nutrition.

Imagine that, in the 21st century living in the US,, where we are suppose to have access to the great food supply, technology and health care system and my body was dieing because of lack of nutrition. Something is seriously wrong with this picture.

Then one day, I was at the local farmer’s garden looking for fresh vegetables to make some vegetable juices out of, I over heard two farmers talking about raw dairy shares where they gave one of their friend raw milk and it cured her from her bed ridden state.

I stalked these two gentlemen down and demanded to tell me more. They basically told me that raw diary is illegal to sell in Michigan but they care give me milk shares where I sign a lease to own a goat or cow so it officially becomes mine and then I get to source raw milk from it.

They told me that the raw diary has every amino acid, healthy fats, probiotics and healthy immune system boosting bacteria that the body needs, and that it has the ability to cure various illness like candida and what do you know it Fibromyalgia

I first sip of raw dairy I still remember to this day, I felt relaxing sensation all through out the body like this was the thing my body was craving for. and week later the pain was greatly reduced. Fast forward 1-2 month later and I was walking again. I was gaining muscle mass without working out and I was returning to the body shape in my teens and early 20’s. The raw milk was rebuilding my entire body from ground up and I’m here today alive, joyful, and healthy as an ox to tell you that raw dairy is one of the greatest foods on planet earth.
