Our Thanksgiving food waste tips continue!

Tip #3: Store or give away leftovers. Place food in clear containers marked with the contents and date. That can increase the chances that the leftovers in the fridge will be remembered and actually eaten.

Koe Knuffelen sounds pretty nice coming from Washington, D.C. this Monday morning. When is the last time you hugged a cow?

Have you hugged a cow today?

The Dutch call it “koe knuffelen,” but we call it a cure for the Mondays. Like any therapy animal, cuddling a cow can boost oxytocin in humans. But their warm body temperature and slow heartbeat lead towards an especially calming experience.

Are there any farms offering cow hugging in PA? We want to know!

Can't anybody come up with a way to do better than wasting tons of food, because the market isn't normal for the time being?
Recent supported eradication methods of wildlife to protect agricultural animals is both indiscriminate and fails miserably to protect resources. As a lover of ALL animals, and protector of humane methods for both slaughter of food source animals as well as the protection of wildlife as we continue to encroach on their territories, I am saddened to consider that farmers and ranchers would support poisoning of predators which poses unfair risk to all animals. As a farmer in my past and animal owner (both livestock and domestic pets), I assure you there are better ways that do not impact the environment unnecessarily. PLEASE consider the responsibility to all. PLEASE do your homework (as I have) about the repercussions to wildlife in general when a specific species is targeted. PLEASE come up with a better way. We are supposed to protect our earth. We get one chance. I support farming and agriculture. Don't be ignorant of the outcome. It's not JUST your bottom line, your lifestyle - it's our earth. Thanks.

How are the different SDA's getting involved with the Qualified Opportunity Zone eligible ag businesses in their respective states? We have found many farmers/ranchers do not know about this new provision in the recent tax bill and many don't know that they are located in the zones!

If you have seen her or know someone who might have her, PLEASE help us bring her home. We are offering a $2000 reward for her safe return. 402-214-4737
