  • FoodScience of Vermont:  DMG Chewables Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a nutrient which is found in the cells of both plants and animals. The human body produces DMG in very small amounts.

Dimethylglycine has been found effective in supporting immune system function and better utilization of oxygen at the cellular level.* FoodScience of Vermont has been issued three U.S. Patents for N,Ndimethylglycine’s value and use in improving immunity and for benefiting cellular processes.* DMG reduces lactic acid build up in the muscle thereby shortening recovery time after strenuous exercise and improving endurance.*

  • Grazn’ Acres (Vernon Hershberger):  The Declaration of Food Independence On June 2, 2010, representatives of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) conducted a raid at the Vernon Hershberger farm. DATCP agents intentionally destroyed nearly 300 gallons of fresh milk by pouring blue dye into the bulk tank, claiming the milk was “adulterated and misbranded”—even though there was no logical, factual, or scientific basis for this conclusion. The milk was unpasteurized, as is all milk on all farms that is stored in bulk tanks. The agents then placed a holding order on all the fresh, wholesome food in coolers on the property, most of which belonged to members of the Hershberger’s private buying club, and some of which belonged to the Hershberger family. Mr. Hershberger then faced a serious dilemma: allow the wholesome, perishable food to go to waste while he engaged in lengthy administrative wrangling with DATCP or allow the rightful owners of the property to take it from the coolers. Mr. Hershberger followed his conscience and allowed the owners to retrieve their food. Vernon Hershberger’s religious principles prevented him from standing by, while nutritious food rotted. https://foodclub.org/gafarmpantry/index

  • Primal Pastures Why our meat is different – To sum it all up, we respect nature. A lot. Actually, we are quick to acknowledge that nature is smarter than we are!  It’s also smarter than science. Everything that we do is aimed at creating a natural habitat for our animals to thrive in. For our pasture raised chickens, this means a free range experience from day one where they are raised outside, on grass, soaking up the Vitamin D and scratching at the ground for bugs and worms. The supplemental feed that we provide is Organic and free of GMO’s or Soy. It also contains items found in a chicken’s natural diet. Our birds are given the ability to roam around and do things chickens are meant to do on a spacious grassy area that is rotated daily to allow the grass time to recover and give the birds fresh forage to munch on.  Read more about our pasture raised chickens here. Our sheep are pasture raised and free range, receiving no grain throughout their entire lives. They are treated humanely and forage on pasture every day of their lives. They live in a low stress environment and are rotated to fresh pastures to simulate the mob grazing effect found in nature.  Read more about our grass fed sheep here. Since day one, we have spared no expense and our commitment to quality and integrity is unfaltering. No matter how much Primal Pastures grows, at the end of the day we are feeding this food to our children and grandchildren, and you can rest assured that our animals are living the life that they were designed for.

  • Vitalzym Vitalzym products are extremely high quality systemic enzymes.  Systemic enzymes are a group of nutritional enzymes so named for their ability to bypass digestion, and thus be absorbed systemically throughout the body. Practitioners throughout Europe and Asia have long recommended systemic enzyme blends to their patients suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis.  Systemic enzymes have also been used for decades post operatively as a scar tissue dissolver.  In more recent years, sufferers of uterine fibroids have discovered that systemic enzymes, in particular Vitalzym, may help their condition. Vitalzym was introduced in 2001 by World Nutrition.  It was considered a major leap in enzyme technology as they were one of the first to discover how to coat non-bovine derived enzymes to protect them from stomach acids.  The original Vitalzym is one of the most recommended nutritional supplements of the past decade, and continues to be a best seller.
