Blog love from fellow Vashon Islander, Gluten-free-girl:

A beautiful post on our business and fundraiser.

Podcast with Charley Cooke of The Survival Mom’s Radio Network:

I talk with Charley about how small-scale livestock processors fit into the burgeoning agrarian economy.  This podcast is important to me because butchery serves cookery, which is to say that the butcher is only worth his salt if he enhances the ability of the home cook to feed the home. This task has historically been the sacred office of the Mother.  Many women who are now reclaiming sovereignty over their food supply are raising the next generation of eaters who will not be satisfied with industrial fare.  This is the biggest and best step in our agrarian renaissance.

Fast Company review:

A good recap of our story, business and the fundraiser, highlighting the unique nature of our mission to empower peasant economy; use of the whole animal deliciously.
