Going Organic - Local Helpers
I have found some local help recently in my quest to get healthier by going organic. One of my newest favorite places is Homestead Farms in Keller, TX. You can find them on Facebook even!
At Homestead Farms you will find raw grade A goat milk, goat cheese, grass fed beef, all natural pork, and seasonal produce. I have personallly tried their pork breakfast sausage as well as their grass fed beef and both were excellent. Sophie and I also got 2 t-shirts with the Homestead Farm "motto" - Know your Farm Know Your Food We love wearing them!
But I am most excited about the community events and classes that are offered through Homestead Farms.
Kids Summer Club
Farm Fun for ages 5 and up!! The second and fourth Thursdays of the Summer, 7pm-8:30. Your kids can hang out at Homestead Farms in the evenings and help with chores, feed baby goats, play games, help in the garden and maybe even do a few horticulture experiments! Every week will be a little bit different and you can come to all or one. $10 per session, No sign up necessary just show up (eat first) wearing closed toe shoes, and old clothes.
June 24 7pm-8:30
July 8 and 22 7pm-8:30
August 12 and 26 7pm-8:30
I am also signed up for 2 activities this summer.
I am going to a cooking class focused on seasonal produce. The class is for Adults only on Tuesday June 29, 7pm and is $10/ person. Space is limited and you must reserve your spot by e-mailing Sarah at email@example.com
The other class is on Worm Composting! It is on Saturday, June 26 10:30am. Check out the website www.wormbincomposting.com/wormcompostingclassdfw.html for more information on the class. I really hope some of you come to these classes!
They are also doing a "cleanup day" on June 17th from 7pm until dark. Sounds like a great time to meet like-minded citizens. I'm there!
I really hope you go by Homestead Farms and see for yourself what this great little farm has to offer. And I do hope to see some of you at either the cooking class, worm composting class, or clean-up!
