grass carp farming

I’ve always liked pasture, especially with real, native, mixed species hedgerows and the occasional mature native tree in the field. There’s lots of beef and sheep farming hereabouts (North Cornwall), which is fine, but: a. In an overpopulated world, 500 lbs of of meat per acre every other year seems a small crop; b. Small … Continue reading grass carp farming The post grass carp farming appeared first on pjf.

bees, biodiversity and pollination v pesticides

 Research published now proves what awake people with functional eyesight have known for decades: Profit-making pesticides kill wildlife indiscriminately. A chemical that is thought to be safe and is, therefore, widely used on crops — such as almonds, wine grapes and tree fruits — to boost the performance of pesticides, makes honey bee larvae significantly … Continue reading bees, biodiversity and pollination v pesticides The post bees, biodiversity and pollination v pesticides appeared first on pjf.

biodiversity and organic farming combats drought in Thailand

A joined-up-thinking (and feeling) approach to food production has produced signs of hope in Thailand. Rather than leaving food production and the survival of life on Earth to mutants with calculators and profit and loss obsessions, a small group that turned its back on industrial farming and monocultures has been able to weather the storm … Continue reading biodiversity and organic farming combats drought in Thailand The post biodiversity and organic farming combats drought in Thailand appeared first on pjf.

A new scientific study from UC Berkeley Center for Environmental Research and Children’s Health, shows that organic food can substantially lower pesticide exposure in children from low-income families in both urban and rural areas. But traces of pesticides are higher than in previous studies involving middle-income, suburban children, suggesting that kids from cities and farming … Continue reading organic food for childrens health The post organic food for childrens health appeared first on pjf.

Major health diet threat to US citizens

And to most of the western world! Imagine a terrorist plot to trick the Brazilian government (through bribes, promises and corporate/political trickery) into cutting down and burning the Amazon rainforests in order to graze cattle and trick the poor American people into eating high fat, high protein, very high sugar junk several times a day. … Continue reading Major health diet threat to US citizens The post Major health diet threat to US citizens appeared first on pjf.

optimum food for free range hens – sprouting wheat for vitamins

It is clear to me, having kept ‘free range’ hens, that layers pellets are not the only food they need or like. They clearly like grass, especially young short shoots, but in the winter the grass either doesn’t grow here (Cornwall) or it is drowned and the hens turn the whole plot to mud if … Continue reading optimum food for free range hens – sprouting wheat for vitamins The post optimum food for free range hens – sprouting wheat for vitamins appeared first on pjf.
