4th Annual Grow Your Health Fun for the Whole Family

The fourth annual Grow Your Health Festival of Gardening, Local Food & Wellness was a huge success for the event, and for me! It can be tough to bring kids along to an event that you are “working,” that is staffing a table as I was for Mindful Healthy Life, but the family-friendly nature of the event made the whole day really enjoyable! My kids learned a lot and had a great time. Read More

Meet Jesse Straight, owner of Whiffletree Farm and father of five

Jesse Straight of Whiffletree Farm in Warrenton,  Virginia  is one of several area farmers who drive into DC and its suburbs to deliver goods direct to consumers at central locations. For those who like to buy local, to meet their farmers, and the use of sustainable farming methods, the farm drop route is becoming a popular alternative to supermarket shopping.

Straight is the father of five children aged one and a half to almost 8. Having been a happy customer of Whiffletree’s for several months, I asked Jesse to share with Mindful Healthy Life readers a little bit more about his farming practices, his business, and how both influence his parenting.

Weston A. Price Foundation’s Sally Fallon Morell on Traditional Eating

Hearing Sally Fallon Morell‘s talk about traditional diets at the Weston A. Price Foundation‘s Wise Traditions conference was a turning point in my health, nutrition, and parenting journeys. Each year the organization headed by Fallon Morell brings together a thousand traditional foods enthusiasts to hear presentations about holistic health and wellness by speakers who are nationally recognized leaders in the field; to meet vendors and sample whole foods products; to eat delicious farm-fresh and locally-sourced meals — including bone broth on tap! — and to learn from one another. The large annual Wise Traditions conference moves to a different part of the country each year and will be in Anaheim, California November 13-16.

In addition to serving as the co-founder and president of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) and the author of several books, Fallon Morell and her husband own P.A. Bowen Farmstead in Brandywine, Maryland, less than an hour from D.C. Available every Saturday morning by appointment are tours of the farm, which produces artisan cheese and raises grass-based livestock.

Earlier this year, I had the chance to talk with Morell in advance of a sold-out day-long seminar she gave in Maryland. Read More
