The Twelve Days of Yule: Day 6, December 26

Six Geese A'Laying

The Livestock Conservancy

One of the most profound food movements has been the recent growth of interest in locally sourced, small farm produced goods. We're rediscovering that it really does taste better fresh and not heavily processed. When you get to the farmer's market, and and a farmer is selling "heritage" pork, or duck, or goose, where did they get their old-timey livestock?

The Livestock Conservancy has been saving rare breeds since 1977. They coordinate efforts between folks breeding rare stock as well as provide information and education for folks wanting more info about heritage breeds. Rather like that farmer you just bought this week's dinner from.

Twelve Days of Yule = Twelve Days of Giving is a personal initiative by me at the SoMil Homesteader to bring some focus to a holiday about gratitude. I don't have any official connections to any of these organizations, other than being a very small donor. Peace out.
