Preparing the meat that we raised together as a family.
July 11th 2016
Atlanta, Georgia

This is our fourth year of running our backyard rabbitry. Our rabbits are cared for and loved. We have a great admiration and respect for the animal. Before we butcher our rabbits my children have learned to say, “Thank you for being here for us and for making us stronger, we will not waste your meat, you are now a part of us.” The children do not have any problems with the harvesting of the rabbits they help raise. They are excited and feel like they are contributing to the family. We believe this makes them more confident growing into the people they will become and more respectful to the environment they are growing within. There is something that has changed within us since we began raising our own meat. There is an understanding that is gained by being responsible for the lives that we end so we can continue. We are tighter as a family because we shoulder the reality of understanding how much dies to keep us alive. Past experience in sharing these particular endeavors that we engage in as a family lead me to believe that many of you reading this may find it unsettling, to say the least. We only ask that you try to understand that we are choosing not to participate in factory farmed meats. The meat that we harvest and eat in our house has been loved or, if hunted, has lived a real life.

We hope our latest family blog post finds you doing well and in the present moment with an open mind.

Most respectfully,


It annoys me when people don’t support GMO labeling simply because they believe GMOs have no harm on you. Like it doesn’t fucking matter. Vitamin A has no harm on you and that’s on the label. Organic is on the label. Artificial is on the label. I have the right to know what I am consuming!! Like congrats you’re okay with eating altered food. Not everyone is?? Even if it ends up not harming us in the long run I still want to know. And if it has no harm why is everyone so afraid to label it?? Produce should even be label with exactly what pesticide it was sprayed with. I have a right to know exactly what I’m getting whether YOU think those things are detrimental or not.

Vegan Squash & Lentil Curry Soup

Comfort food season has started! Let’s see, if I had to make a short list of my top comfort foods they would be:

Thick and creamy soups
Freshly baked bread
Mashed potatoes and gravy

and for dessert, warm fudgey brownies.

Not bad huh?  These foods could easily carry me through until spring.

This is a recipe that I adapted from the latest issue of Eating Well magazine.  It’s rich in flavor and the squash and lentils are perfect together.  

If you want to stretch this to become a larger meal serve over rice or noodles.


2 T organic extra virgin olive oil
1 ½ cups diced organic onion
2 t organic curry powder
20 ounces 1" cubed organic butternut squash
1 cup organic lentils
1 cup diced organic tomato
1 ½ t sea salt
1 14 ounce can of coconut milk
Organic cilantro for garnish


Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium heat.  Add minced onion and cook until softened.  Stir in curry powder, squash, lentils, tomato, and salt.  Cook for 1 minute.  Reduce heat, add water and cover.  Let the soup simmer until the squash and lentils are broken down, approximately 20 minutes.

Stir in coconut milk and continue to simmer until heated through.

Spoon into bowls and garnish with cilantro.

i beg you to read through this entire ad because it is fucking hilarious. if you’re lazy i bolded the best parts.

People often say our house is one of the most unique houses they have ever lived in or seen. Then we often say “ Exactly. You are the ten-millionth person to say that”, so, if you say something else, like: “Icch! I hate this house, you weirdos!” you could go down in history and be remembered because no one ever says that.
Sometimes we are conscious, sometimes we are idiot. Sometimes we are against the terrorists, sometimes we are for them. Sometimes we are sustainable, local, natural, organic, bpa free, soy free, gluten free, caffeine free, gmo free, food free, slavery free, and vegan but other times we eat bacon cheeseburgers cause Buddah said everything in moderation, or maybe that was my mom who said that, We dont care, but we expect you to know and you’ll be tested on this section. If you want to bring your own gluten or soy to sprinkle on your bacon avocado tofu tempeh maple syrup burger that is ok too.
Our house is a three storey farmhouse with 6 bedrooms, its super sized, its a big box, its a cozy cavern. And, its solar powered, situated on hundreds of acres of open grassland ,within walking distance to Arcata, (2.7 miles from downtown). (93 million miles from Mr. Sun) You can walk anywhere safely, only danger is stoned dreadlock kids may not see you and bump into you. Sorry dude.
Dont move to Arcata if you hate dreadlocks. We dont have any ourselves, maybe use to have some, but our house does have a big attached sunroom and is heated mostly by passive solar and maybe you never heard of that and it sounds fishy so it also has gas heat. It stays very warm. Our house is like a sunlight spa.
Pets are not allowed we already have too many. Unless you can bring a baby elephant, even if you stink and dont bathe, if you had a baby elephant you would be awesome. All the utilities are included with the rent. Washer and Dryer on premises. The room has big views all around of fields and hills.
Current residents like to tan, surf, rock climb, practice yoga, garden, hunt mushrooms, have campfires, do auto mechanics and carpentry, study herbology, light incense, rub crystals, practice massage therapy, practice ayurveda, sell real estate, grow fruit trees, make art, grow livestock, ride motorcycles, deer and goose hunt, twirl, and learn to play musical instruments and write craigslist postings. 

We also all work and have real life jobs and careers or are in school and no one trims for a living. Or if they do, they are really clever cause we thought they worked at Safeway.

All rooms in the house have great views. Full disclosure: except at night. The house has no mold or dampness, it stays dry and very warm and has a huge sunroom and a huge living room for lounging, yoga, twirling, pacing, marco polo, and looking out at the farmland which surrounds us. All around us is undeveloped pastureland, with cows, coyotes, wild geese and owls at night whooting, but we are only 2.7 miles to downtown Arcata. We have big garden spaces that we share. There is the possibility to make your own new garden also.
And there are beehives. And there is a salmon creek. And there is a ghost in the old well.
And in late summer there are wild berries and you can make as many pies as possible and put them in our chest freezer.
Our house is an art and nature paradise, we hang art all over the walls and this is a great space to make your own art, due to abundant natural light. In the common spaces are tall 10 ft ceilings and views of nature. But no one will force you to look at nature. You can, if you feel overwhelmed by beauty, go into your room and look at a computer cause we have wifi.
There are no rules about meals or lifestyles in our house, except to keep the place tidy. And no poisonous snakes or tarantulas as pets.
We like to hang out and share food spontaneously, but we all keep to our own schedules. We would like someone who is artistic, or musical or health conscious or into fitness or gardening and nature, or just original and interesting and a does not watch TV all day. We dont have one, by the way. We do have a nice piano. .
We have a 100% non tobacco smoking policy on the premises. We dont get stoned all the time or drink, but light useage is OK. If you get stoned and your personality changes, but you dont know it, that is extremely anoying. If you talk baby talk to your lover and whisper at the kitchen table around other housemates you will be tasered. Deposit is $750 but it is negotiable. If you dont have it, but you have something more special than money, special talks, money walks. Please email show contact info

People think I’m outside my head because I don’t eat animals.

People think I’m going to die because I can’t eat gluten. 

People think I’m incompetent because I don’t eat food sprayed with bug poison. 

People think I’m extreme because I care about where my food was grown, how it got here, and the welfare of the workers who picked it. 

People think I’m a fear monger for wanting GMO labeling and to have a choice wether or not I eat a plant spliced with eel DNA. 

People think I’m paranoid because I have emergency food and water.

People think I’m a hippy because I have a food garden. 

People think a lot of things about me based on my diet and habits. Maybe they should think more about their own. Stay informed, stay healthy, stay prepared, stay happy. And don’t judge people because they care.
