About Mud Puddle Farm

Mud Puddle Farm represents a vision for local food distribution in rural Southern Oregon.

This blog will now be tied to all the activities that pertain to our best, active choice for revolution.  The human necessity for quality food will triumph over the plutocratic fist limiting our ability in food choices.  Understanding the politics, regulation, and control of food as well as growing, processing, and distributing food ourselves, in our community, will provide us with the best grassroots position and ability to change the way people eat.

That is really cool you are from Chicago too. I would love to work on your farm if you need any help. Please email me back at earthgroove@sbcglobal.net.

Just had to write and say hello as we call our place MudPuddleFarm as well. We are on 9-1/2 acres of pasture and wooded hillside just east of Springfield, and I bet we have more, bigger and better mudpuddles than you!

We want to do organic gardening here but so far have devoted ourselves mainly to rescuing animals: horses, goats, chickens, ducks, dogs and cats. If nothing else we can boast of tons of high-quality compost. We’re also doing well in the wild mushroom department, having discovered meadow and oyster mushrooms spring up spontaneously on the deadwood and copious horse poop.

Best of luck with your farming endeavors and adventures!

I just got back from the OSU Extension Service/ Small Farms Conference where I demonstrated Trellis Earth Products corn-based biodegradable bioplastic packaging alternatives to paper and plastic.

Overall I was received with enthusiasium, curiosity and some really good questions. Trellis Earth Products is eagerly prepared to meet those interest with transparency and facts.

The atmosphere of the small farms mindset is inspiring balance with respect to the health of the earth, our community and the families throughout. Earth People really get it.

Please visit our website and feel free to contact me anytime, truly…

Hello in Oregon,

This is Tim’s family friend from Chicago. The summer before last, Ben and I drove up to Ashland from the Bay Area for a long weekend. I’ll have to see if he wants to do it again this summer – we had an amazing time.

Tim’s mom and dad told me about this website and last night. All I could think about was Stephen Gaskin, and The Farm in Summertown, Tennessee. I’m scratching my memory here, from the late 60’s, but I remember the song St. Stephen from a Grateful Dead album being about the Stephen who led classes in San Francisco, then went on with a bunch of folks to start this farm in Tennessee. The Farm accepted anyone. They had midwives that would help deliver babies, and if women wanted to leave babies at The Farm, that was cool, too. The Farm is still there! http://www.thefarm.org/general/visit.html.

Warmest wishes,
Sandy

p.s. I’m really impressed with the fantastic thing you all are doing!
