Notes for November

First - Thanks to my friend, Phil Bentley or Austin for the very cool graphic of one of our eggs cracking open to begin our webpage! Let me know if you like it too.


King Corn, watch the trailers:

Get ready for higher food prices this year, and in the coming years. Grain prices are at historic highs right now, with no end in sight.

Much of this has to do with the U.S. governments farm policies. Subsidies paid to grow corn is at the heart of our mismanaged and very
damaging farm policies. This is not a "political" position on my part, this is a very moral one. Hight Fructose Corn Syrup is making us a
very unhealthy nation, it is sneaking into every concievable product, and has grown in use over 1,000% in just one lifetime. Please inform
yourself about U.S. Farm Policy, and get involved as much as you can.

We just put up a new 100 ton bin for corn so that when we find corn at a decent price we can stockpile as much as we can afford. We
are facing huge increases in our production costs, as are all egg producers - and yet we are trying our best to hold down wholesale and
retail prices.


The Farm and Food Project is a convenient way to get involved with U.S. Farm Policy.

The Ethicurean:
A great website to help educate you and help you to become involved in our nations food fight.

Mother Earth News

I would also like to call your attention to an article in the October, Mother Earth News, it is about Pastured Eggs. Thank you for caring
enough about your families nutrition to purchase our eggs. This article will validate your decision to spend just a bit more money for a
dozen eggs, for you are buying much more nutrition for your dollar than when you purchase eggs that are "Cage Free" or even "Free Range"
for these hens are raised in a barn and are raised on a 100% grain diet, and never get to forage for grasses, bugs and grubs like the pastured
hens here at Coyote Creek Farm do.
