0126 A discussion about moving pastured pigs to the processor - Wed, 22 Oct 2014 22:59:32
This week's update is really an episode discussion around the end of the pork season for us - the moving of the pigs to the USDA processor.  We talk through what we did to get the pigs comfortable wit hthe trailer, how we use sorting borads to move the pigs on pasture into the trailer, our holding pen strategy, fencing and dropoff.It's really a retelling of the stories and some of hte skills we used to get this little piggie to market! 

0125 Prepping pastured pigs for processing and vegetable garden tomato favorites - Thu, 16 Oct 2014 00:57:57
In this episode the Updates include Farmer Andy's pants free romp becasue of the warm weather, Hermione moving back to pasture with the piglets and preparations for taking the pigs for processing.Then in the Veggie Patch we discuss an overview of our tomato varieties for 2014- what will stay on the rowboat of goodness and what gets tossed overboard!Varieties discussed:JulietBHN624 cherrySungold cherryPiriformValenciaPink BeautyCherokee GreenNew GirlBrandywineCherokee PurpleDefiantCelebrityMartha WashingtonSan Marzano

0124 Vegetable garden put to bed, starting a CSA and passionate listeners - Wed, 08 Oct 2014 23:27:12
This week's updates include our prep work in getting ready to move the pigs to the processor this year. We also put the vegetable garden to bed for the season and talk about the process and some of the suprise veggiesthis year. And of course, we have to talk about hunting season.In the Coopcast Community we respond to questions about black fly farming (maggots!), starting a CSA and the callenges involved and how some of our listeners have used our content at some very emotional and powerful moments in their lives.  It's insane to hear people listeing to us with a spouse on their death bed, recovering from cancer or training to defuse a bomb.

0123 A tour of the farms greenhouse and its vegetables - Thu, 25 Sep 2014 00:24:44
This week the CoopCast becomes a HoopCast! We spend the episode looking at photos of our greenhouse / hoophouse / high tunnel and talk through the design and the how nad the why.  We both share our thoughts and opinions on the evolution of our enclosed vegetable garden area and what we like about gardening inside a controlled structure.If you are following along all the images can be found on our Flickr page in the album How We Do It : HoophouseAlso an indepth discussion when we built it is on our farm blog as well.

0122 Fall plantings in the greenhouse, cheese making, business ideas - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 23:23:48
This week our farm updates are simple as the season is slowing down to just the basics.  We talk about the plantings in the gardens in the greenhouse since frost is now in our area.  We are hoping to extend the season and keep harvesting vegetables and herbs for several more months.  There's also updates about pigs in pasture as well.In the Ruminations discussion this week we talk about businesses and how so many let opportunity slip through their fingers.  We share the details of a cheese making class we took at a local winery and the missed opportunities that were everywhere.  There's lessons to be learned in bad expereinces and this one was rife with them.  Although - making your own cheese is cool!We also talk about a business that asked us for input and HOPED we might mention them - FlexTrailers.  It's a cool concept on modular trailers.  It's a much better approach to a business than the first one (they asked us clearly for feedback and hoped we would mention them).  There are still some lessons to be learned here as well.The final business we talk about is Adams Holsters - the makers of the BEST leather holsters you have ever seen - Adams Holsters - and one of the best gifts we have ever received from a coopcast listener!

This Week In Insanity: Ep. 30 - Meatless Mondays in Schools - Thu, 25 Sep 2014 17:04:12

Elementary students at a few schools in California and Texas are being forced to participate in "Meatless Mondays", in which they eat a vegetarian meal on that day every week. School officials make claims that it is healthier for them, but they have no reasoning to back that up.

They are essentially forcing these students into a lifestyle, one that animal rights groups have certainly been pushing towards children. Making it a rule, however - Now That's Insane!



This Week In Insanity Ep. 29 - Pamela Anderson Refuses to Support ALS Research Because of Animal Testing - Fri, 29 Aug 2014 19:51:35

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has helped raise funds and awareness for ALS research. Many celebrities have used their status to help the cause, but one celeb - Pamela Anderson - has refused. Instead, she uses her platform to protest ALS research because of animal testing.

Using a public forum to support animal rights at the expense of human welfare - Now That's Insane!



This Week In Insanity Ep. 28 - PETA Stages Farm Video - Fri, 15 Aug 2014 14:35:59

PETA recently released a video on its website supposedly documenting abuse of dairy cows on a North Carolina farm. But many aspects of the video appear to be staged. This would seem to go right along with PETA's typical messaging strategy of lying in hopes that public outrage will outweigh common sense. Faking animal abuse just to give farmers a bad name - Now That's Insane!

This Week In Insanity Ep. 26 - PETA's Classless "Got Autism?" Campaign - Fri, 06 Jun 2014 20:32:23
