    Black Farmers United with President, Gary R. Grant

    in Education

    Inventor and Farmer, Andrew Beard~Born in Alabama in 1849, Andrew Beard spent the first fifteen years enslaved on a small farm in Alabama. A year after he was emancipated, he got married and became a farmer in a small city outside of Birmingham. While in Birmingham, he was able to develop and champion his first invention (a plow). Three years later, he patented a second plow. These two inventions earned him almost $10,000, with which he began to invest in real estate.

    BLACK FARMERS ASSOC. & THE LAND LOSS FUND ~ FORUM IN DC @ HOWARD UNIV.

    in Education

    The Gist of Freedom and host Natasha Demosthene is pleased to present to you  Mr. Gary Grant President of The BLACK FARMERS, AGRICULTURALISTS ASSOCIATION &THE LAND LOSS FUND. Natasha and Mr. Grant will discuss topics such as preserving Black Heir Property.


    The struggle for the survival of the Black farmer is not over. During the lead up to the now historic settlement of the Black farmers lawsuit, Pigford v. Glickman, Secretary of the USDA, Howard University was working with the Black farmers’ leadership to host a "mock trial" that would have exposed the racial discrimination and other atrocities inflicted by the agents of the Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) - now the Farm Service Agency (FSA) – on Black farmers across the nation. The USDA could not afford for these stories to be told for they would show the limit to which this government would and will go to keep a people dependent and not able to raise their standard of living or be able to safely feed themselves. African American people are becoming a landless people in the United States. We are losing the land and wealth that our parents, grandparents and great grandparents worked, fought and died to acquire for us. We owe our ancestral warriors a debt and our youth an opportunity for safe and healthy food. USDA has not helped us and certainly the courts have proven more devastating than we ever dare thought. So, who will help us? WE must help ourselves by insuring that the next generation is ready to maintain and conserve the land. Come and let us reason and plan together, our enemies do.

    Ben Slayton of Farmers' Gate Market for Local, Pasture-Based Meats

    in Food

    ENVISION THIS: Meat that fills your soul as much as your belly


    Our guest, Ben Slayton lived abroad in Tuscany on an organic farm specializing in pastured pork. There he developed a passion for well-raised meat and craft butchery. After a couple of years raising his own animals here in Maine, Ben switched his focus to building a network of several small farms to support Farmers’ Gate in an effort to bring more locally raised meat to the Maine marketplace.


    Farmers’ Gate Market bridges the gap between local, pasture-based livestock farms and the growing number of families who are looking for good locally-raised meat. They work with a network of Maine farms to provide their customers with grass fed beef, pastured pork and lamb, and free range poultry. They work only with farmers who produce pasture-based livestock, and they process all the meat in-house. As a result, they can ensure safe handling of all their products and retain complete knowledge about everything they sell – from farm to table.


    Like their customers, Farmers’ Gate butchers are hungry for good homegrown food – meat raised locally on pasture by farm families who are thinking about the future. They also look for creative ways to build awareness about local, sustainably raised and craft-butchered meat. Therefore, they share the stories of their farm partners, preserve the skills of whole carcass butchery, and incorporate old world traditions with new technology.
