Meet Our Farmer Mike Benziger: We Promise, You’ll Be Inspired

Meet Our Farmer Mike Benziger: We Promise, You’ll Be Inspired

November 06, 2019

Today we are thrilled to present the first in a series of videos of the farmers who grow our vegetables. This one features biodynamic grower Mike Benziger of Glentucky Farms in Glen Ellen, Calif., and it captures the essence of the reason we founded Dr. Cowan’s Garden. 

 

Our primary mission, as so beautifully described by Mike, is to make it easy for people to diversify their diets with the most nutritious (and sometimes hard-to-find) plants as possible. To optimize the nutritional content of the plants, first and foremost, we need healthy soil. No one describes and fulfills this need more precisely and passionately than Mike.

 

And, as you will see toward the end of the video, plants, like people, perform best when they are surrounded by beauty.  Please watch the video all the way to the end. If you are like me, you, too, will be inspired to somehow create more beauty in your life.  

 

In health,

Tom

In this time of stress and confusion, I wanted to share a heartwarming story that was made possible by you, our customers.  As I have said, one of our core missions is to help small farms grow, prosper and, if possible, convert to biodynamics.  We just received word this week that Red Range Farm in Pennsylvania has received its official Demeter certification, meaning, it is now a recognized biodynamic farm.

Six Strategies to Keep Your Immune System and Detox Pathways Strong

March 17, 2020

Clearly, everyone’s attention is on the current crisis going on worldwide.  It is important to remember that our immune system is largely responsible for clearing toxins and “debris” from our cells and tissues. The less burdened our bodies are with toxins, the better we can respond to microbes and other outside pathogens.  With this in mind, here are the six things I do to try to keep my immune system and detoxification pathways as strong as possible.
