Welcome to the first edition of Food for Thought Friday!
As many of you may know, as a farmer, food in all it’s edible deliciousness is very important to me; including the issues regarding production, consumption and above all, health.
But Food for Thought can also encompass a lot of other things, things that make you go “hmmm…”
This first post falls into the later category. This article has some interesting points, some of which I agree with absolutely, and others I’m not entirely convinced of, but it definitely makes you go “hmmm….” after reading it.
It kind of made me think the next project for us may be a bee colony.
On a lighter and cuter note, Hurricane Irene has a cute new namesake! Anytime a domestic born in a zoo makes the national news its chest thumping time for me.
And speaking of domestics born in zoos, welcome to our new baby Poitou donkey here at the Sedgwick County Zoo! Now thats some snugglerifficness there! The Poitou is one of the rarest breeds of livestock in the world, and we are the only zoo in North America that has successfully bred and raised them.
Hope you all have a fabulous holiday weekend. And if any of you want to join me in my new beekeeping venture, give me a shout!
