  • A gift of grass | Green Gate Farms
    Sue Beckwith president of the Texas Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association took on the mission of finding truckers who wouldn t take advantage of us After dozens of phone calls and hard bargaining but she finally found the right hauler Moreover she twisted Farm Aid s arm to donate 2 500 to the cause As a result about a dozen farmers came to Coyote Creek Mill in Elgin to pick up their gift of grass Our two bales were met with 30 hungry mouths I dropped the bales under an old pecan both for shade and the manure that would fertilize the stressed out tree I grew up with Amish and Mennonite farmers traveling far distances to rebuild communities devastated by floods They took their tools and strong hands and generous hearts leaving behind double workloads for their families I never appreciated their sacrifice until I had my own farm It s part of their culture and their religion The same ethic can be found just down the road from our River Farm at a saw mill where I ve been buying lumber for our barn When I arrived last week I was greeted with a strange site a massive pile of blackened pine logs Steve the owner has been hauling them out of the Lost Pines forest scorched by the wildfire His brother and several church members had lost their homes in the blaze He planned to mill the logs and give much of the lumber back to these needy families The woods they loved and lost would become the walls and roofs of their new homes Hay and lumber Feeding and rebuilding These are the gifts and the stories that emerge from this once in a lifetime drought Nature may knock us down but human nature lifts us

  • We feed them, they feed us. | Green Gate Farms
    in golden pastures It sure made a good story especially in Texas On visits to other butchers we ve seen the other side of the animal husbandry Erin still cringes at the sight of leaving our plump happy healthy pigs in a waiting pen sometimes with the most sickly and mistreated creatures you can imagine In one instance they had been shipped down from Iowa the culls and rejects headed South for the low income markets We could hardly tolerate the thought of our pigs who had fed on grass our vegetables and Whole Foods vegetable scraps being butchered side by side with these miserable animals Many of you have become attached to our pigs almost as much as we have You ask how we can kill them and we answer like all farmers do we feed them and then they feed us A win win What makes our farm unique is that our pigs also feed you even if you only eat our vegetables This week our tomatoes and peppers are growing in the field where our rare breed Guinea Hogs lived last year After moving the pigs across the dirt road and leaving the field fallow for four months we tilled it up this spring and planted our vegetables there As a result these are by far the most productive nightshades we have grown on the farm Instead of buying fertilizer for that field our pigs provided it for us That s how farming has worked for thousands of years We think it should continue that way About Farmer Skip Skip Connett s boyhood was spent on a magnificent farm in Pennsylvania that got its start in the 1700s His career has spanned journalism public health and farming Most recently he was a member of the TOFGA Advisory Board and TDA Organic Industry Advisory Board View all posts by Farmer Skip farm history harvest meat pigs pork skip New Farm Institute debut Intro to Beekeeping June 18 6 Responses to We feed them they feed us Judy Priest June 4 2011 at 12 04 pm Skip I loved your editorial about your pigs I remember the pig you wrote about And I enjoyed Erin s story about the deer problem Just wanted to let you guys know that I read EVERY newsletter It makes me feel connected to my great friends in Austin Have fun at your Hootenanny this weekend Judy Reply Rhonda Zoch June 4 2011 at 1 41 pm Erin and Skip I want to thank you for all of your efforts what you share with us on paper and in the field Stories like this remind to be grateful everyday whether that be the life an animal gives to us the smile on someone s face as they recognize the difference in biting into a cucumber or heirloom tomato from the farm versus a store bought vegetable or the opportunity to see the phases of farming through the seasons You ve opened your home your
