Just in case y’all have been wondering where I’ve been and just what I’ve been up to lately since I haven’t posted much, here’s the skinny:

My long-time partner flew the coop and I’ve been managing the sites, ranch, critters, and everything else on my own. Long story short, the Farm Wars Truly Organic Cookbook will be released shortly, and available for sale on this site and a newly created site in which I will be selling the Farm Wars Truly Organic Cookbook, The Old Fart’s Survival Manual, and the Stable Mates line of stuffed toys for the kids, handmade by yours truly. Gotta do something to keep the critters in feed!

Here is the new site in the making. The links aren’t up yet, and the products page is not running, but you can see the gist of what I am doing. I count on your support in the future, and your understanding for the present. Thank you for being there for Farm Wars, me, and the Pardners gang ;) ~Barb

Washington, DC – September 4, 2015– [ GlobeNewswire ] The 16th annual Wise Traditions nutrition conference, hosted by the Weston A. Price Foundation, is coming to Anaheim, California, November 13-16. Mark Bittman, of the New York Times, proclaimed that “Butter is Back.” Conference participants will learn why butter is a health food, and why animal fats and coconut oil should be a part of everyone’s diet.

The conference will be held at the Anaheim Marriott, 770 West Convention Way, in Anaheim, California. The International conference is open to the public and offers CEU credits to some health professionals.

“If you are aiming to improve your diet and your health, the most important step you can take is to understand which fats are healthy and how you can incorporate them into your diet,” says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. “This conference will highlight the science that supports the need for traditional fats in the diet, for everything from hormone production to weight loss to protection against cancer and heart disease.” Read the rest of this entry »

On October 6, 2015, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) published a paper on request from the European Commission titled “Review of results published by Mesnage et al. (2015) in PLoS ONE and the laboratory findings communicated by Dr. Samsel to Farm Wars,” which responded to the findings of Dr. Anthony Samsel that laboratory diets used exclusively by scientists around the world for toxicology testing are contaminated by Glyphosate. And the EFSA’s results are? Don’t worry, be happy, nothing to see here, we’ve determined that it’s okay, business as usual.

Since testing for Glyphosate contamination in laboratory chow used for toxicological testing purposes is not required, the following request was made, and summarily dismissed by the EFSA:

It is time for the GLP and OECD protocols to be updated to include routine testing for Glyphosate contamination, and all testing done previously with the contaminated feed re-evaluated in light of this new information.
