This week’s new and special…
WATER, WATER, WATER -
Mark Twain – “Whiskey is for drinking, water is for fighting over.”
This weekend in Ojai there will be an amazing permaculture/regenerative agriculture course presented by
Darren Doherty, a world leader in these practices. A dear friend has sent a course outline that is informative and inspirational. One quote:
“WATER – Our ultimate goal is to allow all species and functions to express their full potential. The role of the farmer is to produce the most organic material possible; water is the key.
The principles of permaculture will be so vital as we change our agricultural practices to meet our increasing issues with water.”
PRODUCE INFO -
We blasted through the first set of peppers this last week. We will continue to have Nardellos — but a wait for the next Espellete.
It is already becoming a transition time to the fall and our most beautiful weather! We are looking forward to our Saturday dinner with Salt’s Cure and the Tomato Festival on Sunday.
Out new ram, Tony, is busy getting acquainted with our ladies. We have also sorted six older ewes and are beginning plans for an on-farm class on slaughter, butcher and cooking methods for these “mature ladies”. We have had some spectacular results and want to share!!
