This is a great article, out of the UK.

It’s the story of a local farmer who has been trying to spread the good word about eating and using local produce.

And it’s working!

This article is a great inspiration, and it’s definitely worth a read for any local, small farmer who might be trying to come up with better ideas for getting the word out about their produce.

My favorite part of the whole article – was summed up in that one picture.

And maybe this quote …

sales of the milk have held up in the face of very competitive pricing of retail milk and greater general economic uncertainty.


Stealth Chickens

We’ve briefly talked about this before – but there are many towns and municipalities all over the U.S., and even the world (for that matter), that don’t allow chickens inside their limits.

This is a quick little read about how some folks in the Sacramento area are keeping stealth chickens anyhow.

It’s worth a read.


Urban chickens get tucked in at night all over California. They’re legal in varying number in Folsom, Roseville, Davis, Berkeley, Oakland, Anaheim and LA. Until Sacramento joins that list, the city’s stealth chickens will continue to run afoul of the law — which doesn’t have much meat, anyway. Get caught with a backyard hen, it’s a $100 fine. You’ve already saved that in free eggs! And – get this, the city lets you keep your chicken.
