Not a pork chop
Well, we haven't had time to eat everything that we've ordered yet from the new farm... We have been a wee bit sick with croup. Yes, all of us. And poor Buster ended up in the ER at 1am because he was having such a hard time breathing. I had no idea what was wrong with him, that afternoon he went from being slightly hoarse with a fever and going to bed easily to coughing and wheezing and barely able to breathe. I was shaking, I was so scared. But the folks at IRMC were great, really great. Even when I said no to the chest x-ray. I made one of the nurses give me a hug. Nurses can be mean and I was pregnant and at the ER alone w my baby after 1am. I needed a hug and I didn't want them to hate me for not wanting my little one to get radiated. ;) Hes not a pork chop. (Yes I know thats a totally different thing, laugh a little.)

Since Buster came down with this plague of croup we have all fallen with him. I wanted to call it a natural health fail but I don't think it was. Buster is nearly 100% better, E was only really sick 2 days and K, who I gave the least herbs to, is still sick, but she is only on day 2 or 3. Thats not so bad. 

Kerrygold butter melting!

The other night I made this soup.  It was the best chicken noodle soup that I've ever had. I roasted a chicken, then boiled all the bones with some magic for about 24 hours, then cooked some carrots, leeks, onions and celery in the broth. Added back in chopped chicken and some noodles. Oh my. Perfectly comforting and nourishing. Noah even loved it.

This is MINE
Don't take it!
I love raw milk!

As for, we loved it. The milk tastes perfect. Buster loves it, which is most astounding because before this I could barely get him to drink a cup of water or milk a day. He is up to THREE or more a day now. Praise God. :) That little man needs to grow. 

We made tacos from the beef and raw cheddar. Also great. We've had grassfed beef from Costco and this tasted cleaner and fuller, less fatty somehow. The apple cider was a nice autumnal treat too. If you're interested in clean, delicious, safe raw milk, I high suggest you check this place out.
