Essay for BAAJ form
[ベン/ Ben CampbellComment(0)]
"what i would like to add to the application form"
I would like to say that we are only 2 people trying to start a bio dynamic farm community for future bd prep making and bd farming education.There are very few bd cows in Japan.We have 2 that we think are close to Demeter standards but they are Artificially inseminated(A.I.) born.There is no bd bull in Japan.We realize Japan has a long way to go to be totally bd without bd cows and a bull.We are doing everything possible to stay with the international demeter standards, only because we have a copy and it is in english for me to read and understand.We have the open pasture,we make our own hay and we spray all our land with the bd preps we make ourselves on our farm and our cows have their horns.We make a lot of bd preps for anyone to use. Konomi and i were both trained to make the preps and we are growing all the herbs we need to use to make these preps.It is only that we are not able to use bd sheaths from bd cows.We are very lucky to find organic or close to organic hooves and horns.The intestines and messentary and cow skulls are from a place that deals with dead cows that have been killed by accident or disease or old age. and then we try to choose the accident ones that may be right for our needs.We are now using some of our cows sheaths.
We are a bd csa farm and don't have a product to sell as demeter until we can have the land we need to raise demeter beef cattle.We also don't have the people yet to share in the task of making this community happen.Our goal is to have a self sufficient farm that can be a demeter certified beef farm and use the bovine sheaths for bd preps and have Demeter beef for the market.We also will have a small dairy herd of about 10 Jerseys plus other livestock such as chickens for bd eggshells for Maria Thun's recipe of BC and pigs.We will grow our own wheat for our own bakery and offer demeter wheat and flour for sale.We want to start an apprenticeship program here on the farm to help new bd farmers.We operate a 20 to 30 member vegetable csa garden with herbs and flowers to share.We live mostly off grid and will soon be totally self sufficient.
We feel that bd cows are the backbone of the bd movement in Japan.Without bd cows there is no movement.We are here to do the work and are in a good place to do it.We know it will take a long time to get enough bd cows and we may not live long enough to see it,so we are worried that if something happens to us, who will carry on this farm after us? We hope to be able to pass this farm on to other people to continue to bd movement from here.It is a good and honorable way of life.We do have hope for the bd movement with help from our B.A.A.J. members.We have a good network of knowledgeable people to guide us and cooperate with.
We are a W.W.O.O.F. of Japan host and we host volunteers from many different places of the world.They can share what they have experienced with us here on this farm.We need help during the growing season and they get to learn something about a bd csa farm and more.
We love what we are doing,we love where we are at,and we love who we are with.
