    The Renegade Farmer: Dean Sparks of NYFoods and Eggs-change

    in Environment

    Ten years ago, New York farmers Dean Sparks and Dan France discovered they shared a passion for organic farming—producing local foods that are wholesome, nutritious and great tasting, as well as kind to the earth and animals. That’s why they founded Nyfoods, a farmer-owned food business that supplies outstanding organic dairy from
    local farms within a short drive of New York City.
    The first product, organic nymilk, is supplied by the dairy cows raised by like-minded family farmers throughout New York. Nyfoods also offers organic nyeggs, a line of Nycheese, Nybutter and Nyogurt. In addition, Brooklyn-based Blue Marble Ice Cream began sourcing organic nymilk in 2011 for its boutique ice creams.
    He believes a there is still  great divide between farmers and retailers still which poses challenges within the marketplace, and Nyfoods seeks to address these disparities.
    A dedication to great food carries over to the vision Sparks has mapped out for Nyfoods and its local operations. With families and community leaders increasingly concerned
    about the availability of fresh, healthy foods in so-called “food deserts” throughout all regions of the United States, Nyfoods in 2011 launched the Eggs-Change relief program
    in its backyard with Nyeggs. Organic eggs from pastured hens are a versatile source for nutritious protein that’s hard to find in many communities.
    Today Nyeggs are distributed free of charge to patrons of the Mott Haven Farmers’ Market in the South Bronx. Also, a portion of every Nymilk purchase is contributed to the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY), a regional organization that creates a sustainable, ecologically sound and economically viable food system.
    Join us as we talk with Dean about his groundbreaking company, his dedication to organic food and food justice, and how you, too, can contribute to a world of fair food.

    The Renegade Farmer Says NO to GMOs

    in Environment

    If you've followed us for any amount of time, you know that The Renegade Farming advocates farming in most forms EXCEPT for industrial farming. Why? Because the ills of pesticides, corporate greed, worker/farmer abuse, animal abuse, and much more are rife when agriculture, largely the domain of man working with nature, becomes a mass produced "entity."

    As bad as this is, we abhor only one aspect of "farming" more--genetically engineered crops. "What's that, you say?" Yes, crops that are GENETICALLY altered, and then mass produced and SENT TO YOUR supermarket.

    GMOS are genetically modified organisms, and they DO exist. Biotech companies have, for decades, been stealthily creating engineered crops under the guise of "helping find solutions for crop dearth," what they are really perpetrating is nothing short of a crop monopoly; these companies alter a crop, or a seed, then PATENT this new creation--which means they own it--with the idea that YOU will eventually have to PAY them to even grow it, or harvest it. Eventually, the hope to overtake the world with this scheme, and YOU are at risk!

    Join us as we discuss the basics of what you need to know about GMO's, GMO politics, how the GOVERNMENT is involved, how companies like DOW and Bayer are involved, the problem with Monsanto, genetically modified ANIMALS (it's true) and how you can STOP the GMO madness!
    JOIN us for this important show!
