Wallingford Public Library "Eating Animals" documentary

We have been invited to speak at this event on February 26th at the Wallingford Public Library. There will be a viewing beginning at 6:30pm and we will be sharing our thoughts and our practices with the group post showing. And we will be happy to answer any and all questions at that time.
We encourage those who are interested in a more natural and humane approach to raising animals for consumption, as opposed to factory farming, to join in this event. 
Do not let the title discourage you from coming, it is not as scary as it sounds. Let’s explore different ways to raise/grow food that is safer for the environment, the animals, and the consumers.
Hope to see you there!

Earth Day & fundraiser-Yoga at the Farm

Come join Rise Yoga and Muddy Roots Farm in the back fields on April 22nd to celebrate Earth Day with some relaxing yoga, taught by the incredibly talented amazing human, Kelsey, while supporting an awesome organization, Farmer Veteran Coalition, who's mission is to "...cultivate a new generation of farmers and food leaders, and develop viable employment and meaningful careers through the collaboration of the farming and military communities."; a mission close and dear to farmer Chris's heart as he is a veteran of the Marine Corps and a huge advocate of this organization. All proceeds will go to the Farmer Veteran Coalition
We hope to have a clear and warm day to take in the sights and sounds and smells of Spring. Hawks may be screeching in the background and songbirds will be heard in the surrounding woods. There may be a rare sighting of a hunting Osprey circling the pond on the way back to the ocean, or our resident Kingfisher looking for her prey. Our farm dogs Jada and Sawyer may even wander around curious as to why you're posing like they do.
After yoga, we will introduce our farm and our mission, and answer any questions you may have.
Please click on the link below for more information and to RVSP. Your payment to attend will be your donation. Spacing is limited so please be aware.
Thank you and we hope to see new and old faces!

Clean-Up Day on the Farm!
Apr

Clean-Up Day on the Farm!

We have chatted about hosting a farm cleanup day as we can only do so much by ourselves and figured this would be a great opportunity to have our followers, customers and friends out to the back field to see where we raise our animals and assist us in cleaning up the land from years of abuse. 

A previous "farmer" (air quotes are seriously needed here) convinced my (Kirsten's) grandfather that the plastic ground cover he used on the property for vegetables was biodegradable and turned it under into the soil instead of pulling it up to trash it. That was over 15 years ago. The plastic is still here in all its glory and has gotten into our pond, woodlots, horse pasture, my folks house, just to name a few. We are very concerned about our pigs and poultry inadvertently consuming the plastic, and for the health of the land. There is also plenty of plastic bottles and other debris thrown around the land from the previous tenant's workers. 

If you would be interested in attending we would be eternally grateful and will provide you with food and beverages, and a huge smile!

The date we have come to agree on is Saturday April 14th with a rain date of Sunday April 15th. If the whole weekend looks like a wash, we will try for the following weekend. These dates should allow for the ground to dry out a bit and also give us the ability to navigate the woods and fields without too much Spring growth. 

We are thinking the time of the event to start at 930am and run a couple of hours or more, depending what everyone wants to do. If you can only attend for an hour, perfect! You are under no obligation to stay for the duration. We figure lunch will be around 1230-1. 

Lunch will consist of chicken (shocking), burgers, and some vegetables that wintered over. We will have some beer and wine and non-alcoholic drinks.

Please RSVP by April 7th so we can plan the food.

Thank you all and we hope to see you there!
