My last blog included a call to the community to support expanding Sustainable Farming. This was actually an article I put out in the last issue of Ecolocal Living. I asked my readers to connect with a local farmer whom is active in this issue, or myself, if they had ideas to help this process. Within a week of the article, I received a phone call from a farmer with a very large gift.
Steve Rascher is the only certified organic maple farmer AND was awarded THE #1 Maple Syrup in the World last year. He is a Sushan, NY farmer who lives in harmony with nature, who lives off the land, who understands – in many regards – the simplicity of how to live a healthy, peaceful & happy life. How to enhance longevity and avoid chronic ill health – naturally, by a positive lifestyle.
Steve is offering a small sample – approximately 25 acres- of his land and the older home on his property that he grow up in – to a worthy farmer. His land is close to large water sources and has never been exposed to chemicals or pesticides. Steve is a wealth of knowledge and inspiration to the right match for this marriage.
Please continue to let me know of any potential resources to help the Saratoga Community to build a healthier and therefore happier and more successful culture by creating more sustainable foods.
Be the change you want to be for yourself and your community !
