Five Mile Farms Online Order Pick Up: Support Local Regenerative Farms!

Get more info about this event »

Description: Our clinic in North Kansas City is now an official pick-up location for Five Mile Farms amazing grass-fed/finished beef, pasture-raised chicken, and farm-fresh eggs! Five Mile Farms is a local farm in La Cygne, KS that practices regenerative agriculture, which not only produces extremely high-quality meats but is also the prescription to replenish our soil and save our planet. They have so many top-quality animal products to choose from: farm-fresh eggs, whole birds, soup bones, hamburgers, quality beef cuts, brisket, summer sausage, beef jerky, and forest/grass-fed goat - just to name a few. How to Place an Order Step 1: Create an account and place your order online at www.fivemilefarms.com Step 2: Pick it up from our practice! Orders will be dropped off at our practice monthly on the 3rd Friday every month and held in our freezer until you pick them up, at a time convenient for you. ** No need to register for this event, all you need to do is follow the steps above! What is Regenerative Agriculture? Regenerative Agriculture describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in a delicious, high quality and nutritious protein source! Comparing Nutrient Content When comparing eggs from hens raised on pasture to factory-farmed caged hens, the pastured eggs have twice the vitamin E and long-chain omega 3 fats, 38% higher concentration of vitamin A, and less than half the ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids. (Karsten, PaWerson, Stout, & Crews, 2010) In addition to better quality fats, pastured eggs are also higher in other vitamins and minerals. Grass-fed beef displays similar differences in fat quality and nutrient content when compared to conventional grain-fed. Studies also reveal increases in cancer-fighting antioxidants such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase have been found in grass-fed beef vs. grain-fed. (Daley, AbboW, Doyle, Nader, & Larson, 2010) Support Local Regenerative Farms Opting for locally raised & produced food ensures that it stays packed with its intended and initial nutrients (and flavor!). Buying local helps strengthen communities because when you buy directly from the farmer, you are building a relationship while also supporting local farmers who provide for you as much as they provide for their own families.

Mavis Staples
Mavis Staples

Get more info about this event »

Description: Hailed by NPR as “one of America’s defining voices of freedom and peace,” Mavis Staples is the kind of once-in-a-generation artist whose impact on music and culture would be difficult to overstate. She’s both a Blues and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer; a civil rights icon; a Grammy Award-winner; a chart-topping soul, gospel and R&B pioneer; a National Arts Awards Lifetime Achievement recipient; and a Kennedy Center honoree. She marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., performed at John F. Kennedy’s inauguration and sang in Barack Obama’s White House, and she has collaborated with everyone from Bob Dylan to Prince. She was an integral part of her family’s gospel group, The Staples Singers, led by her father Roebuck “Pops” Staples. With Mavis’s voice and Pops’ songs, the group evolved from enormously popular gospel singers to the most influential spirituality-based group in America. Their songs, like “Freedom Highway” and “Why Am I Treated So Bad,” provided part of the soundtrack of America’s civil rights movement. Mavis is a respected elder of soul and gospel music, a successful solo artist and beloved collaborator with rock musicians—but she’s no static symbol of the past. As Staples describes, “I’m the messenger. That’s my job—it has been for my whole life—and I can’t just give up while the struggle’s still alive. We’ve got more work to do, so I’m going to keep on getting stronger and keep on delivering my message, every single day.” At a time when most artists begin to wind down, Staples ramped things up. Since 2004, she’s released a series of fresh, powerful solo albums that feel vital and present. Recent collaborations include Ben Harper, Arcade Fire, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Hozier, Neko Case, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Tune Yards, among others. She has blown away countless festivalgoers from Newport Folk and Glastonbury to Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, performed with The Band at The Last Waltz, and graced the airwaves on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Austin City Limits, the Grammy Awards and more. When listening to a voice like Staples’—which Pitchfork raves “has only gained texture and power over the years”—it’s impossible not to contemplate all she’s been through in her life. “I sing because I want to leave people feeling better than I found them,” Staples concludes. “I want them to walk away with a positive message in their hearts, feeling stronger than they felt before. I’m singing to myself for those same reasons, too.” Even the messenger needs a reminder every now and then. Visit lied.ku.edu for more information or call 785-864-2787.
