    Kids:  try our self-propelled merry-go-round!

    Grandpa Ken rebuilt this antique self-propelled toy and it’s been a big hit with the littles!  Bring a sack lunch on your next trip to the farm and stay a while while the kids play.

    New:  mango kefir pops

    If you’ve never tried kefir pops, start here.  Hands down, this flavor is my favorite!   Made from our raw, only-grass kefir and cream and organic mango, these pops are so smooth and rich– full of exotic flavor but packed with powerful probiotics.  Try for yourself and see if they aren’t your favorite, too.  Kefir pops are also available in vanilla, lemon, blueberry, and chocolate and are handmade at Jako Farm.

    Jako Farm to expand solar power

    Jako Farm currently generates 25% of it’s own power through solar energy.  There are 88 solar panels on the hay shed roof, some of which you can see as you drive toward the farm from the east.  In the next two weeks, Daniel and Mark will be adding 44 panels to the array, which will increase the amount of energy they produce to 36% of their total consumption.

    What’s your ‘nutritional coverage?’

    This week, Mark and I switched insurance providers.  Our original intent was to cut costs… but in the end, we chose a company with slightly higher premiums because we realized we currently have significant gaps in our coverage.  We opted to pay slightly more to be better insured.  The whole process made me think about how we shop for food.  When we buy food purely based on price, we often compromise our nutritional coverage.  Seeking out higher quality food (and paying a higher price) yields better nutrition and huge long-term benefits to our health.  Check out this chart and the nutritional difference between pasteurized milk and raw milk as an example:
