Meet Your Farmer – @heronpondfarms
Lorie Arnold and Shannon Meagher own and operate Heron Pond Farms, located on twenty acres immediately south of Spokane, Washington at the base of Tower Mountain. Lorie and Shannon are in a time of transition on their farm, as they have recently moved away from raising goats and making cheese toward placing primary focus on pork production. They graciously took time out of their busy schedules to answer my questions about their farm. --You raise a breed called “Large Black Hogs.” What are the best features about this particular breed, and have you encountered any challenges with them? "They are friendly and easy to manage, they do superbly well in a pasture setting, are good in family units and adapt well to both heat and cold – Large Black Hogs totally rock. Oh yeah – and they taste … unbelievable! The only real challenges have been dealing with castrating the males (would be true of any breed) and that they are BIG when full grown – over 700 pounds as a boar or sow. The size alone can be a bit intimidating, but our pigs are generally very sweet and LOVE belly rubs." --How do you market your products? Where can people purchase them? "On our website, on the farm and the Liberty lake Farmers market starting in May – we have a website (in need of updating), a Facebook page and an Instagram account – make sure you look for Heron Pond Farms.” Read more on our website: https://inwfoodnetwork.org/meet-your-farmer-heron-pond-farms/

While spending a weekend at Jonah's parents, a call came in that there was a swarm of honey bees about a mile away. So off we go!! Aaron said it was the largest swarm he had ever seen. They are now snug in their new home at #millcreekfarm
Birch Rise Farm is now taking deposits for our Berkshire pastured pork. Our registered boar and registered sows are bred on pasture and all piglets are born and raised on pasture. Our pigs are 100% pasture raised. The philosophy of our farm is to use as many all natural solutions as we can while treating our animals humanely. We don’t use antibiotics, hormones or any slop feeding practices. That’s why this heritage-breed pork is meltingly tender, spectacular in flavor and nothing like the pale, commodity pork so common on today's market. Learn more about us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/birchrisefarm/
Pastured Pork- $5/lb hanging weight, which includes packaging.
Deposits- $100 non-refundable
Available in November 2018
Typical half hog weighs 100-125 lbs. hanging weight. Your take home amount is approximately 75 - 90 lbs. Meat is custom cut and vacuum-sealed to your order at Sanford Butcher Shop, USDA certified.

Earth Day! We grow this vegetable, known as chayote, at La Carolina Lodge. The ladies make a delicious dish with this squash. It grows on a vine. Did you know that chayotes contain no cholesterol and unhealthy fats, and is usually recommended for controlling bad cholesterol levels and reducing weight? It also is a rich source of dietary fiber, antioxidants, iron, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, potassium, copper and vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C. Our earth and its nature is amazing!

Take a peek inside Chef Brian Malarkey’s @greenacrecp
and come experience true organic fare direct from our secret garden.
Waste not, want not! Spent grain, or “mash”, from our brewing process is given to Kate Mountain Farm in Franklin, NY. The mash is used as a soil amendment and feed forage for the livestock!
Feeling the heat and iceberg lettuce is the cure. This one is round like our planet. Please bring it back it style, especially when it’s this fresh, beautiful, and delicious. From the one and only, @chinofarms
Happy Earth Day! • Black Rabbit Executive Chef Chris Rattaro and his kitchen staff use seasonal ingredients from Edgefield’s own gardens, grown using organic methods - herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers flourish on the property’s 74 acres. • It all comes together beautifully during our Farm to Table events!
Nourish your body with love and in return, love will blossom with you💕🌸🌞🌿

Yesterday was annual Earth Day, a global event that aims to evoke political action and civic participation in the fight against climate change and habitat destruction. At Lightfolk we are focused on our environmental impact everyday and hope that the Lightfolk Village will be a place for furthering ecological education and lifestyle inspiration. #livelight #lightfolk #naturelover #earthday #earthday2018
