Raw Milk Consumers Get Raw Deal

Abigail at the farm

We had a great time visiting the raw milk farm in Christina Lake, BC. The Stavens were wonderful loving people who really love their animals. The cows were so sweet and loved Abigail. She had so much fun feeding the cows. The cows could easily eat from the stall but it was much more enjoyable from Abagail's hand. The farm was amazing. The goats and cows eat only organic alfalfa and they forage up the mountain. The nutrient content of the goat milk is unbelievable. The goats and cows forage on wild hazel, bark and wild plants and herbs off the mountain. This milk is far superior than anything I have ever seen. No wonder my daughter is glowing.

Be sure to click the image to see Abigail drinking fresh raw goat's milk and Cody getting his bum licked by a cow and the other image to go to Wild Things Organic website.

Sour Cream & Onion Kale Chips
Fresh Alberta Kale in Season Now
I love the fresh kale I am finding at the farmers market, especially the bio-dynamic kale from Blue Mountain Farms. It is so delicious.

2 bunches kale
1/2 cup raw tahini
1/2 cup water
2 tsp sea salt
1 bunch green onions

Blend all the ingredients except the kale in a high power blender until smooth. Massage the mixture into the kale until well coated. Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 12-24 hours depending on your desired crispness. They are delicious!!

I personally own a full set of Saladmaster cookware and have for almost 20 years. I use my cookware to lightly steam cruciferous vegetables for Abigail. I'm also delighted to mention that Saladmaster started in Dallas, Texas and they are well known for their Saladmaster machine which is an excellent manual food processor.
