In today’s show I interview “regenerative farmer”, Wenona Boucher from Chockalog Farm in Uxbridge, MA
We discussed her term, regenerative farming, which is not just organic, but also leaving the land better than you found it. She advises that we should look beyond organic and go back to heritage breeds of chickens and cows.
Wenona told us what we should be looking for when buying eggs. Labeling has become very deceptive and buying cage free or free range may not be your best choice. She said you want to buy an egg that has come from a pasture raised chicken. This means that the chicken is eating grass and bugs versus feed. You can download my shopping guide for eggs at this link. Or you can text me at 44222 and send me the word download114 and I will send you the infographic about shopping for eggs.
We also talked about grass-fed beef which for Wenona means nothing. You can have a cow that has been grass fed most of it’s life, but they can finish it off with grain and antibiotics. Grain causes “leaky gut” symptom in cows which is why they need the antibiotics. This also causes the contents in their bowels to leak into their blood stream. You can listen to her description of how this affects us as human beings in the podcast.
In this show I also mentioned the new private Facebook group I have started with 20+ of my green living experts. We are called “The Green Crew” and together we are going to help you with all your questions about living a cleaner, greener lifestyle. You can join for free and after the first 30 days it is a small monthly investment.
