Pasqua, one of our Scottish Highland cattle, gave birth on Tuesday night to a large, stillborn calf. Traumatized by her loss, a long labor, and damaged nerves, she lay listless in the pasture. Our staff brought water, grain, and encouragement, but the real gift for Pasqua came from the third graders at Prairie Hill Waldorf School, who spontaneously sang choral music to soothe and comfort her.

The FCC is voting Dec. 14th on its proposal to repeal “net neutrality” and we are deeply concerned it will cause harm to hundreds of farmers and thousands of eaters we serve.
