Take this opportunity to hear what’s going on in your Central Valley every first Friday of the month with Tom Willey and guest speakers on KFCF radio….

Down on the Farm ~ KFCF 88.1  fm

Friday Feb. 5th

5:00-6:00 pm

The topic: “A recent immigrant to these parts from No.Carolina has discovered Fresno’s ethnically diverse neighborhoods to be a veritable food wonderland. Host, Tom Willey will interview James Collier whose fascination with our food culture led him to co-found the online community, “Taste Fresno”, fast gaining members and notice. It’s possible newcomers recognize treasures underfoot to which we locals have become complacent. We’ll discuss a citizen food activist’s vision of the celebrated edible culture we could become on KFCF’s Down on the Farm. “

I am very excited to say that I am on a committee that is putting together a new Farmers Market here in Turlock.  Our goal is to offer our community a healthy local food shopping experience!

If you are a farmer interested in space at this market, leave your information in a comment and I will get back when the market is further along in its planing stages.

Happy Farming, Just Anna!

This my locavores is a must see…..a good step in supporting local!

This is my second post about this documentary and after seeing it my emotional reaction confirmed the importance of  my blog…to share what I feel is important with my community….good whole food & how to find it, I am one small effort to support local and this film is the reason why.

Mark your calendars & take a friend to the beautiful restored  State Theater in Modesto. Food, Inc. is a powerful documentary that will affect the way you eat no doubt, or at least plant a seed in that direction.

The film runs August 14 – August 22…..if you see it, we want some feed back here!

It has been the dream of Rob and Candy White to become full time natural farmers for some time. While this husband and wife team have other full time jobs, their new hobby has turned into a successful small local side business by word of mouth!

Rob White started his natural farming adventure with just a couple of grass fed beef. After appreciating the good clean flavor of this meat and the encouragement of an organic farmer friend Ross Shoop, he decided to expand their new farm family with chickens and hogs.


It didn’t take long for Rob to devise a portable chicken coop that is rotated around a small arena allowing chickens to continually dine on new grass, little buggies, and collect fresh eggs.

Now the hogs are here… they are Tamworth and Tamworth cross hogs, this breed is adapt at grazing and are known for their lean meat and tasty bacon, the first group will be ready by June.annas-photos-2008-007

We have to say it is very odd to see these traditionally grain fed hogs enjoying their unlimited supply of grass, but it is said that happy animals make for better tasting meats.

It is obvious that Both Rob and Candy enjoy the relaxation of tending and nurturing their animals with their natural farming practices, all the while providing a healthy food source for our central valley community!

Give Rob a call and decide for yourself if grass fed is the way for you and don’t forget to tell him who sent you!
