We are also pleased to say that we began the process of becoming certified organic slaughterhouse. This is another need that we strongly feel is not being met in our community. In order for meat to be sold as organic the farm, the animal, and the processing facility all must be certified as such. We will be working with Pennsylvania Certified Organic which is conveniently located just around the corner from us. Today we met with Heather Donald who helped start us on the path toward certification which we are hoping to be up and running by mid September.
In other news if you are looking for something to do this weeked you should go out to FARMFEST. This event is lasts all weekend and is a celebration of the local organic community. They will be offering live music, workshops, stuff for the kids, and a smattering of other fun treats. Go check it out. You might also run into Helen who will be walking around and talking to folks about RSMC.
As always we love to hear from ya’ll. The good-- the bad-- and the slightly off kilter. We love your feedback.
