…doing what comes naturally

Category: Mercola

And that’s the way it is…..

….although no one is the Ag community talks about it.  Health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola blows the whistle in the practice of dumping sewage sludge on pastures and crop lands. Several farms have down this in our area despite the serious concerns that have been raised about the practice.  In our experience, the pastures look […]

Everybody knows that….

…..but did you know why most of the grass fed beef you buy in the store….or on-line….is not raised in the United States?  And did you know an examination of  beef carcasses shows a residue of more than 200 drugs…not to mention heavy metals? These are just a few of the facts Dr. Joseph Mercola […]
