Pastured Eggs – GMO/Soy/Corn-Free Eggs Available!

This comes to us from a local member:

June 30, 2012

Hi All in about 10 days we will have an abundance of GMO/Soy/Corn free eggs for $4.25 a dozen. The chickens roam the property, no sprays or anything used on the field. Some of us got the family to switch and of course prices went up and now they are losing several of their existing customers. These egg yolks are much darker than the ones i have bought from farms that are certified OG, or that feed GMO free, etc…. this is private family who’s younger sons wanted to raise hens for a business. So you are keeping the young guys in business with your purchase. I will have several dozen available on Monday’s for the co-op – when people pick up their milk or produce, etc. i can add on some more for anyone on here. I live in the Royal Ave area of W Eugene.

Let me know if you are interested. I took a picture of some of their conventionally fed eggs if you would like to see the color of their yolks. It takes about 10 days for soy to detox so i won’t have any before then unless you want some during that time.

Pasture-Raised Chickens Available

This comes to us from one of our local Eugene Chapter members:

We are they Dealy Family from Lorane.  We live on a 22-acre farm w/ milk goats, beef cows, meat rabbits & an assortment of poultry.

We have raised meat chickens for ourselves for 7 years & this year decided to raise a batch to sell.  The chickens are pasture-raised to give them access to lots of bugs & grass.  Their feed is certified organic.  The water is from a pure spring.  We live next to an organic farm; their are no commercial farms in the area that use chemicals.

These chickens are Red Broilers, which are slower growing than the standard Cornish Cross.   We plan to butcher on Sat. June 23.  The birds will be available after that for  $4.75/lb. bagged & frozen.  They will be about 4 lbs. each.  We have 24 available.

If this goes well, we will consider doing it again in the fall.  If you have questions or suggestions, please call Elaine at 541.942.6914.  ~~ We also have fresh eggs, raw goat milk, organ meats, chicken feet & butchered rabbit for sale.

Camas Country Mill Open House – Update

My son and I attended the open house at Camas Country Mill. We made it there for the last tour of the evening on the final day. It was very interesting.  One of the owners of Camas Country Mill gave us some background on the business, how they got into it, and what they went through to start up the mill.  Then he turned on the machine and they quickly bagged a couple hundred pounds of whole wheat flour while we watched.

They had prepared samples made from many of their grains and beans. I don’t think they know about the importance of proper preparation of grains and beans yet, but local and freshly ground is a great start!

We sampled “Faro Big Boost Salad”, “Three Lentil & Squash Curry Soup with Sausage”, “Sue’s Soup with Turkey Sausage”, and others.  My son’s favorite was of course the , “Teff Brownies”, Gluten-free “Chocolate Chip Cookies”, and the apple cider.  My favorite was actually a simple Teff Cereal topped with cheese and sun-dried tomatoes.

I’ll have to try making some of these recipes by soaking the grains first using the techniques outlined in Nourishing Traditions.

I don’t know all of the places you can buy these locally grown products, but I know they are selling at the Creswell Farmer’s Market.  I think they are also available at the Eugene Farmer’s Market, probably Hummingbird Wholesale, and maybe some of the local natural food stores.  If you know where these products are available please let us know in the comments below.

One of the owners I spoke to said that their stock of flour and grains rotates in about a month.  That is pretty good for flour available in stores.  For comparison another well-known brand we bought for the Healthy Grains class in October had an expiration date of TWO YEARS in the future!

The delicate oils in grains quickly become rancid after grinding.  That is why we at the Weston A. Price Foundation recommend grinding your own flour, or buying the freshest flour possible, and then following careful preparation techniques.

For more information on the Weston A. Price website about soaking grains and beans see:
