San Jose and South Bay WAPF chapter April potluck. For more information please e-mail Olga at . Please join us for our April potluck/speaker event featuring Joe Morris of T.O. Cattle company!
www.morrisgrassfed.com
Born in 1962 and raised in the city of San Francisco, Joe is the fifth
generation of his family to steward land and cattle in California. Joe has
worked on buckaroo crews in Nevada and California, as a lay missioner,
community organizer and social worker with the Catholic Church in Latin
America, and has taught high school in Washington, D.C. Since 1991, he and
his wife, Julie, have used the Holistic ManagementR decision making
framework to enhance the health of their community and land and to produce a
living from their work. They have two children, Sarah and Jack.
T.O. Cattle company leases the six ranches it manages, two of which belong
to the California State Parks, while one belongs to the Elkhorn Slough
Foundation. On these ranches they run pasture cattle for others, their own
cows, calves and yearlings, and, since 1995, they have marketed Morris
Grassfed BeefT directly to families in the Central Coast.
As results of their management decisions they are a profitable ecosystem
based business whose lands are improving even as productivity has risen. On
one state park, for example, in the last five years, they are now able to
run roughly 25% more AUMs on the same land. In that same time period they
have seen vigor return to the native plant populations, particularly oak
trees, riparian vegetation and perennial grasses. Furthermore, soil that
was once bare is now covered. Perhaps most importantly, relationships
between people collaborating with T.O. Cattle Company who at one time had
little trust for each other are steadily gaining trust for each other and
improving their ability to work together.

: August Raw Milk Forum: Growing Demand for Nature’s Perfect Food Farm Freedom and Consumer Choice versus Government Roadblocks. The science and legal status of raw milk will be the focus of The Real Deal About Real Milk, an all-day seminar on raw milk to be held August 2 at Cedar Crest High School. The event will feature nationally know speakers on the safety, health benefits and legal status of raw milk in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation.

of Agriculture to stifle the growing raw milk movement. “A growing number of stalwart Pennsylvanians seek to reclaim their constitutional freedoms that have eroded since the founding of our nation,” says PICFA president Jonas Stoltzfus. “Excessive government control over farmers and consumers is causing citizens to question the authorities and renew their efforts to ensure the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” The event is open to the public. The cost to attend is $20.00 for adults, $10.00 for children. The location of the event is Cedar Crest High School, 115 East Evergreen Road, Lebanon, Pennsylvania. The event starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 6:00 p.m. Lunch is included in the registration fee. Registration at the door or pre-registration by phone, (717) 432-2231.

Tim Boyd was born and raised in Ohio, graduated from Case Western Reserve University with a degree in computer engineering, and worked in the defense industry in Northern Virginia for over 20 years. During that time, a slight case of arthritis led him to discover that nutrition makes a difference and nutrition became a serious hobby. After a pleasant and satisfying run in the electronics field, he decided he wanted to do something more important. He is now arthritis free and enjoying his dream job working for the Weston A. Price Foundation.
