Video: Real Organic Project – Know Your Farmer – Radiance Dairy
Organic is constantly being eroded as factory farms displace the family farmers. Originally, organic agriculture was meant to build the long-term vitality of the soil. But not anymore. The organic seal does not protect you against vegetables and fruits grown in chemical soup. They call it “hydroponics”. Dave Chapman, a Vermont farmer ,who first sounded the alarm about hydroponics in organic says,”in five years virtually all supermarket certified organic tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers will be hydroponic.”
It is happening. Those “organic” berries and tomatoes that you find on store shelves in the midst of winter- where are they coming from? They are grown in vast greenhouse complexes in Mexico.
The family farmers with the Real Organic Project are creating a label verifying organic integrity. We urge you to visit their website and join them. https://www.realorganicproject.org
Let’s visit with Francis Thicke with Radiance Dairy in Fairfield, Iowa; he exemplifies the ideals of the Real Organic Project.
Let me close with the words of Thomas Jefferson:-

Recipe: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies & Balls (V, GF)
by Sweetly Raw
It’s EASY to make!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup oat flour*
Stir all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Make sure the wet ingredients are room temperature and the coconut oil is warm. Add to the dry and stir it all together into dough. It will seem a bit wet but it will thicken up within a few minutes. Add the chocolate chips and stir well. Use a large ice cream scoop to portion the dough and release it onto a parchment paper lined tray. Press each one down gently to 1/4-12″ thick (my scoop makes 7 large cookies). Bake at 350F for 16 – 18 minutes or until golden and fragrant. The bottoms should especially be brown. They firm up once they’ve cooled. If your cookies are smaller make sure to bake for less time.
Store at room temperature in a sealed container for up to 5 days or freeze.
*I always make my own my grinding oats into flour in the blender.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
Make the recipe above (with or without the chocolate chips) but place the dough into the fridge to chill and firm up for at least one hour. Roll into balls and then place in the freezer until you’re ready to dip them into chocolate.
If you want to dip them into chocolate:
Melt 1 cup dark chocolate of choice (chopped chocolate bar, chocolate chips, or raw chocolate) over low heat in a bowl set over a pot of hot water on the stove. Dip each ball and place on a parchment paper lined tray. Place into the fridge until it hardens, about 10-15 minutes.
