Today is #WorldSoilDay soo shout out to the loamy layer that grows 95% of our food and supports life on #Earth. The purpose of this day is to raise awareness about #soilhealth. According to the United Nations, “one third of our global soils are already degraded. Most of the pollutants originate from human activities.” Cheers to our community of organic #food loving, #composting, #gardening folks and especially the local #farmers and orgs using the latest #regenerative #organic #agriculture practices to restore soil health for future generations. 🌱#Repost @briarpatchcoop

A lot of bugs and nutrients and seeds and sunshine and water and decomposing organisms interacting, genetic memory being transferred from one to the next. Food is memory. If we eat dead industrial food, empty of information, we forget, our body forgets, and not only can we get ill, our consciousness fades away. This is why we choose to eat food that is full of LIFE, and genetic memory that SUPPORTS Life. That is why we shape our world with our awareness, our choices, our purchases, and our actions

Local artist and potter @marginuttall handcrafted a small batch of stoneware pots for us. The design was carefully considered over almost a year-long process and both the design and glaze will be adapted for every harvest. For 2018, we have gone with a more traditional shape, referencing the horizontal lines, quite often found on the farm.

The clay is sourced domestically and has been mixed with clay from the farm. The pots were fired to 1250ºC, to create a look and density that is stone-like and is much stronger than earthenware clays. A domestic glaze called ‘pearl white’ has been used and is slightly translucent, which reveals the clay underneath.

While every effort has been made for the pots to resemble each other, no two pots are the same and each lid has been crafted to fit the pot it is pared with. Metal utensils can cause honey to crystalise, so Margi has created spoons as a perfect accessory for the honey pot.

Details: diameter approx. 7 cm // height approx. 16 cm // weight approx. 400 g // stoneware contains no lead or chemicals // pots have a glazed outer and inner, with unglazed rim // spoons have an un-glazed handle and glazed head. For more, head to our farm shop via @__olmh (link in our bio). 😎🤙💚👏🍯💯

For our first 2018 harvest, we had a small batch of 200 jars of raw honey. Thanks to the support of our community, we have around 100 left. Because we have a diverse pasture and significant wetland area, the bees can draw on a range of nectar sources. We like to think of it as honey every day, not everyday honey. This means each jar looks slightly different and we think this only makes the honey more beautiful to look at and taste. The glass jars were sourced in New Zealand and carefully selected for their sturdiness and strong lines. We encourage you to reuse your jar after you’ve enjoyed your honey.

Details: 300 grams // raw New Zealand honey // due to it being winter, your honey may arrive hard. If you prefer a more runny honey, we suggest leaving in the sun for a few hours, to soften. For more, head to our farm shop via @__olmh (link in our bio). 🙏💚👏😎🤙🐝

@stonesoupsyndicate has just published a beautiful ‘podcast with pictures’ called At the Table with Tom Hishon. It was filmed a few months back when @mcmasterchef was in New Zealand for @orphanskitchen’s fifth birthday. It was a pleasure and a privilege to sit around the table with @mcmasterchef, @thomas_hishon & @nicholasloosley of @everybodyeatsnz to chat waste, regenerative agriculture and the role and relationship of chefs and farmers. Head to @stonesoupsyndicate for the full film. Thanks again @aamcphoto_ 😎🤙🙏💚

We pretty damn excited for the new @stonesoupsyndicate issue on December 10. We’ve been fans for a while now (and even contributed to an issue last year). But, this upcoming issue is a banger. Called Whenua / Land, it’s full of deeply important conversations. Keep an eye out for a piece by us and something else that’s very special. If you aren’t already, head to www.stonesoupsyndicate.com/supporters to back @aamcphoto_ and his team. Thanks @stonesoupsyndicate 🙏💚🙏💚

If you’re interested in attending, I’m sure you can just get in touch and come along too. 💪👏🙏 #womeninageiculture #womeninag #femalefarmerproject #femalefarmers

We’ve been a touch quiet on the farm journal over the last few months. As you all know, we’ve been busy with completing our restoration work, getting our garden more established and tending to our bees. Not to mention the regular rhythm of the dairy calendar and creating our farm shop goodies. But, we’re almost back with a few amazing and inspiring interviews. First up, Emma Wheeler from KPMG, Auckland. Stay tuned for our interview with her, this week. 🙏💚👊

Just putting the #tractor away after we finished #seeding the last of our #testplots—about a month late because it kept #raining in September. #groworganic #organicfarming #organic #organicag #bobquinnorganicfarmer

Updates on the seedlings! Growing in beyond organic cow manure compost (from happy cows on open feilds. Malibu compost's: Bu's blend, biodynamic compost) mixed with 1/3 perlite for areation. Have given them a 1inch layer of filtered water in a tray everytime the top soil starts to look dry. They will get an organic foliar spray of natural mistik (by dragonflyearthmedicine) the morning after tomorrow to inoculate and promote propper biology (mold/bacteria) in the phyllosphere of the plant( part that grows above ground) The benificial mold (for example: Trichoderma harzian) will inoculate the tissues and leaves of the plant, overcompeting bad/pathogenic molds that will harm the plants health and kill it. The bacteria (for example: BT aka Bacillus Thuringiensis) will inoculate the tissues and leaves of the plant, infecting then killing pests that attempt to eat the plant.

Btw the tomato leaves at the end look a bit funny because the first leaves that sprouted from the seeds are getting ready to fall off.

Collecting fences from the last paddock of high density tiny goat grazing for 2018. So much biomass is accumulating! This is an area of the retired market garden that borders a couple of rows of currants, gooseberries and a row of rhubarb. I wish we had cross fencing for winter grazing, since there is still so much forage here...but that will have to wait until next year’s list of projects. This area was grazed twice this summer.

Wes and I are taking advantage of this #Indiansummer and good moisture to #seed nearly 100 varieties of #khorasan #wheat from all over the world. Normally a #springwheat, we are #planting them in the #fall to test for winter hardiness. With the changing #climate, finding #crops that can adapt is imperative for the future of #agriculture. #climatechange #organicfarming #organicag #organic #bobquinnorganicfarmer

Earlier this week #GregGianforte came through Big Sandy and we had a chance to chat a bit about the future of #organicfarming and #agriculture in #Montana. I am a member of his #ag advisory committee so it was nice to welcome him to my hometown. #organicag #organic #bobquinnorganicfarmer

Fair trade is about more than living wages, excellent working conditions & social benefits for workers.⠀

To us, fair trade also means supporting climate-friendly farming practices, investing in community development projects, and guaranteeing stable prices for farmers.⠀

Serendipol’s Fair Trade Fund has funded a range of infrastructure, medical and educational projects, including: building vital infrastructure in marginalized communities, such as bridges, roads and electricity, and purchasing critical medical equipment for hospitals and clinics in more remote rural regions.
