Heritage Grain Conservancy

Heritage Grain Conservancy | Permaculture, Horticulture, Homesteading, Bio-Remediation, & Green Tech | Scoop.it

Einkorn is an ancient grain that makes delicious breads, pizza, pastries and more - that are more flavorful and healthy than modern wheat. 

Einkorn is the highest in protein and trace minerals of all grains!

It is low-glycemic and high in micronutrients and antioxidants. It is a powerful free radical scavenger, high in lutein, thiamin, fiber, and B vitamins.  

If you are sensitive to modern wheat, einkorn may be a delicious alternative. Einkorn is “gluten safe” and digestible by most people who have wheat and gluten sensitivities, especially when fermented or sprouted. 

Einkorn has gluten, and is not safe for people with Celiac disease.

Wild Turkeys Are Tough Old Birds. Here's Why You Should Hunt and Cook Them

Wild Turkeys Are Tough Old Birds. Here's Why You Should Hunt and Cook Them | Permaculture, Horticulture, Homesteading, Bio-Remediation, & Green Tech | Scoop.it

When it comes to cooking wild turkeys, they might as well be an entirely different species than their domestic counterparts. Consider this: Wild turkeys can live up to 12 years, can weigh 18 pounds, run at speeds as fast as Usain Bolt, and can fly. Farmed turkeys live about a half year, weigh up to 35 pounds, and are really too big to do much of anything. “If you pluck a wild bird and put it next to a store bird, they look nothing alike,” says Cordaro, who was a vegetarian for a decade before becoming a hunter. “A wild turkey is narrow through the chest and the breast meat is probably the size of an industrial-farmed chicken breast.”

For hundreds of years grains have been at the foundation of human civilization. Many families grew small plots to sustain themselves and their livestock. Humanity uses grains in an astonishing variety of things. Today, many of those grains have been lost to time and giant agricultural business. However, we believe these grains to be important to those who wish to bring back the wholesome goodness and the independence grains can provide to a family farm.

Why Aren't More Farmers Turning Poop Into Power?

Why Aren't More Farmers Turning Poop Into Power? | Permaculture, Horticulture, Homesteading, Bio-Remediation, & Green Tech | Scoop.it
Ten years ago, methane digesters were hotter than Hansel. Then, they seemed to fall out of fashion. The point of a digester is to capture the noxious gases that rise from manure lagoons and decomposing waste, so that, instead of smelling them, we can burn them for energy. Digesters capture greenhouse emissions and replace them with renewable energy. They transform manure into money, methane to moolah, waste into wampum, and moldy bread into, well, bread. Because digesters can spin crap into gold, people figured that this was a form of renewable energy that even conservatives would love. In 2006, I wrote a story about Reynolds, Ind., which the Republican governor rebranded as BioTown, USA: a demonstration of the power of digesters (and other renewable fuels) to bring energy self-sufficiency and prosperity to middle America.
