Stanley Fishman of Tender Grassfed Meat blog wrote me this morning and shared his post about the founder of US Wellness Meats, John Wood. John is a sponsor of Realfoodmedia.com and exhibits at the Wise Traditions annual conference each year. Stan is nominating John today for the HartkeisOnline.com Hero of Sustainable Agriculture Award. I think this is a great idea, and I would like the readers to check out Stan’s blog and then second his nomination in the comments here on my blog, below.

Here is Stan’s post:

Grassfed Farmer Renews the Land

By Stanley A. Fishman, author of Tender Grassfed Meat

Life begins with the land. The plants we eat cannot provide us with vitamins and minerals unless the soil is rich enough. An animal that has eaten plants grown on depleted soil cannot provide us with the nutrients we need. Modern farming methods can deplete the soil of nutrients. Even traditional methods can deplete the soil unless good crop rotation practices are followed. But one grassfed farmer has reversed this frightening trend. John Wood of US Wellness Meats is renewing the soil on his farm. He has doubled the yield of grass and improved the quality of his forage. This has improved the already excellent quality of the meat he raises. And he has accomplished this with substances derived from long dead plants.

See the rest of his article, Grassfed Farmer Renews the Land, here. After you read his article, please return to this blog and second his nomination!
