State of Michigan vs “Bakers Green Acres”

State of  Michigan vs “Bakers Green Acres”
Host: Renee “The Homestead Honey Hour”

State of  Michigan vs "Bakers Green Acres"Back in March, I interviewed Mark Baker of Baker’s Green Acres here on the Homestead Honey Hour. Mark is a retired air force veteran, now sustainably farming in northern Michigan State along with his wife and 8 children. If you missed that show, Mark and his family were and still are involved in a legal battle for their right to farm, specifically to continue their pasture-raised hog operation. Using an incredibly ambiguously-written Invasive Species Order or ISO, (which, by description basically outlaws ANY pig), the Michigan DNR went after Mark’s main livestock: His heritage breed Mangalista hogs.

The Homestead Hog!

The Homestead Hog!
Host: Renée aka Michigansnowpony

It’s easier than you think to raise your own pork!

HomesteadIf you have the space and your zoning allows it, you might want to consider raising a couple of pigs. Not only will you have the most delicious hams, chops, and bacon you can imagine, you’ll also have peace of mind knowing exactly what your pigs were fed and how they were treated. While most of today’s pork is raised in unhealthy, confinement factory farms, yours will be a quality AND humanely raised meat. Plus, if you home butcher and cure, you can avoid the nitrates which predominate in commercially smoked and cured pork products today. Continue reading The Homestead Hog!

Providing for yourself, hunting hogs for meat!

SHWAT ThePrepperProject3-31Logo 6-31After the SHTF, where will you get your meat? Well, fortunately for us, many parts of the states are getting overrun with hogs… yes, that’s right; big, filthy, nasty, tasty hogs.

Join us Monday, July 1 for The Gun Show, as we talk with members of the SHWAT Team. That’s right, SHWAT… This isn’t some half-assed translation by Siri, I actually mean it. Special Hogs Weapons And Tactics. Apparently tactics are needed to hunt bacon on legs, and we’ve got just the experts lined up to talk about it. Perhaps they’ll shed some light on how to react to an ambush or break contact. After all, these pigs get huge and aggressive. Join us at 4PM PST, 7PM EST and don’t miss out on some free training from top guys in the industry.

The Anyone Can Farm Academy!

HHH pigsWhen the Michigan DNR all but shut down farmer Mark Baker’s successful, pasture-raised, pork operation in Marion Michigan, he became the embodiment of that old adage:   When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.    Mark, his wife Jill, and their eight children re-grouped and decided to go in a new direction.   If they wouldn’t be allowed to raise healthy, naturally-produced food for people, they would do the next best thing:   Teach people to raise it themselves.

And thus, the “Anyone Can Farm: America’s Farm to Fork Academy” project was launched.

Modern farming relies heavily on fossil fuels, genetically modified seeds (GMO’s), soil-depleting farming techniques, and crowded animal-husbandry practices in order to produce cheap, plentiful food.  This cheap, factory-farm food is the bland, nutrient-vacant fare filling our grocery store shelves. To listen to this show… Continue reading The Anyone Can Farm Academy!
