Video: A Visit with Footprint Farm

Dear brothers and sisters,

Here is a video filled with aliveness featuring the Taylor and Jake Mendell.They have created a magnificent family farm in Vermont.

They are setting an example for all of us of what can be accomplished by perseverance and persistence. Not only are they healing the earth but on a deeper level, they are healing the soul of this great country and helping us to move from sustainability to regeneration.The video is brought to you by the Real Organic Project. They are in the frontline against the erosion of organic standards.

Vegetables and fruit grown hydroponically in chemical soup can now be organic and so can milk and meat from animals confined in buildings amidst filth and stench. There is even talk now of permitting GMO’s to be organic! The assault is relentless.

The Real Organic Project are in the frontline against the erosion of organic standards. We urge you to visit their website and support their work.

Please accept our best wishes to you and family for good health, prosperity and success.

The lab results on the new crop are here. It has a polyphenol content rated at 395 ppm (parts per million). That’s 78% above the 222 average for most extra virgin olive oils.

It contains high levels of the phenols oleocanthal and oleacein. Oleocanthal is an anti-inflammatory and oleacein is a powerful antioxidant. As inflammation is related to various other diseases, polyphenols help fight them including cardiovascular problems. Antioxidants improve body functions such as digestion and skin condition. They heal cell damage and enhance the body’s immunity, its ability to fight off diseases.

We Welcome Investors

The U.S. organic market in 2018 broke through the $50 billion mark for the first time, with sales hitting a record $52.5 billion, up 6.3 percent from the previous year, according to the 2019 Organic Industry Survey released by the Organic Trade Association.
Characteristics that are identified with organic, such as clean, transparent, fresh and sustainable helped boost organic sales to unprecedented levels, according to the survey.

New records were made in both the organic food market and the organic non-food market. Organic food sales reached $47.9 billion, for an increase of 5.9 percent. Sales of organic non-food products jumped by 10.6 percent to $4.6 billion. The growth rate for organic continued to easily outpace the general market: in 2018, total food sales in the U.S. edged up just 2.3 percent while total non-food sales rose 3.7 percent.
Almost 6 percent (5.7%) of the food sold in this country is now organic. Today’s consumers can find organic products – food and non-food items — in every aisle of their grocery stores. They can choose organic in their favorite big box store, their club warehouse store, even in their neighborhood convenience store, and increasingly on the internet. Organic is no longer a niche market.

Thanks to your kind support, we too are growing. We wish to hire more teamworkers and to purchase tools and equipment. We are seeking long term, stable capital. If taking a strategic position in the organic food industry appeals to you, let’s talk!
