This is something of a weekend ritual. There is something deeping grounding and elemental about baking bread. The simplicity of the raw ingredients, coupled with the inherent warmth and energy of your hands, which together give rise to this everyday miracle. There is also a deep sense of being part of a timeless ritual; a practice that in its various forms has been at the very heart of human existence for millenia.⁣ ⁣ Not unlike keeping bees, I find making bread to be a meditative and mindful process. One that requires me to be 'in the moment' and also allows my mind to relax, making space for ideas to bubble up and start to crystalise.⁣ ⁣ While I have always loved baking, particularly sourdough, our weekly loaves are heavily-seeded spelt and honey. Members of my family have dietary intolerances to standard wheat flour, but are fine with spelt flour. Spelt is an ancient grain (in the wheat family), favoured I believe by the Romans. It is high in protein, but relatively low in gluten (although it still contains gluten and is not appropriate for people with coeliac disease). The lower gluten content makes it tricky to knead and shape, it is sticky and doesn't form that lovely smooth elastic dough characterisric of standard bread flour. It also doesn't hold its shape in the same way, resulting in a denser loaf ('crumb'). Most commercial 'spelt loaves' actually contain a mixture of standard flour and spelt flour, which is what got me started on this path in the first place. ⁣ ⁣ Anyone who is serious about baking bread knows you must let it cool before cutting into it... but it is tough to be that disciplined! My favourite baker's perk is to have that first slice, the crisp crust, still very slightly warm, with butter and, of course, a little honey.

This morning reports came in that the United States will allow Brazil to start importing beef again. In 2017 the US stopped Brazilian beef imports due to numerous food safety violations. US cattle producers do not want this for numerous reasons. This same government refuses to approve Country of Origin Labelling (COOL), which US cattle producers have been advocating for! According to Reuters, “The USDA had banned Brazilian fresh beef imports after increasing its testing on the beef and ready-to-eat products following a 2017 investigation into corruption that involved Brazil's health inspectors and meat companies including JBS SA and BRF SA.” There are many cattle producers that have no choice but to play the commodity market pricing game if they want to farm. Unfortunately those market prices don’t care what actual production expenses are and American farmers are losing. We are lucky to have access to customers like y’all that allows us to produce beef in a grass-based system and not have to play the commodity beef game which does not necessarily reward for sustainable beef production. Remember it’s not the cow it’s the how. This morning we had customers out to pick up their beef shares and we thank you all so much for your commitment to us and for buying locally produced American grass fed beef! Your purchase supports the preservation of Loudoun County farmland, our rural economy and so much more! #americanbeef #grassfedbeef #americanfarmers #saveourfarmland #countryoforiginlabel #buylocal #familyfarms

Reshaping old pieces into new designs. I love the way removing sharp edges lets different light play upon the centers.

The first of the season's flowers. With the wonky weather we've been having in North Florida, the earliest bloomers have had very short stems. Perfect for this short vase. ❤💐❤ #flowers #flowerfarmer #buylocal #itsbetterinbaker #bakercountyflorida #organicallygrown #northflorida #snapdragons #bellsofireland #springflowers
