Reading: You Can Farm by Joel Salatin. This is a truly worthwhile, down to earth book with none of the dewy eyed romanticism that one usually find in this sort of book. For example: harvested forages (i.e. hay or silage) cost three times as much as if the animals eat the forage on site!

Also still reading Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma as well. I didn't buy Horizon Organic's milk before, and now that I know what Cascadian Farm's about, I won't be buying their either....or Petaluma Poultry. We need to redefine sustainability and have something better than organic. These people have turned the word into a bad joke.
