Monthly Workout/Challenge: Can you tread water for 10 minutes?
Treading water is an important skill to keep sharp, as your life may depend on it. Imagine your boat on a small lake sinks and you drown because you didn't know how to tread water waiting a few minutes for help, not fun. Its also a great fitness challenge. Simply enter a body of water that is over your head, and start treading water and don't stop until you hit 10 minutes. I'd recommend staying close to shore or having a spotter if you are in the middle of the lake.
A is A Podcast Guest Highlight:
Courtney Townley, founder of Grace and Grit, was recently a guest on the A is A podcast. Courtney helps women from all over the world to reclaim their health and happiness. This amazing episode will be launching 8/23 and is a must listen for anyone looking to improve the quality of their life.
I am a big fan of thrift stores. Recently we stumbled upon a thrift store located in the back of Parry's Hardware in Hamilton. The clothes are basically new (many Colgate students wear for one year and then take them in) and are priced between $1.00 - $2.50. There is a great kids selection too. Last week we got 5 button down men's shirts, 3 summer dresses, a new pair of Polo shoes and 3 kids shirts for $35. If you like bargains, this is the place!

What I'm reading, listening, watching or eating:
In Beyond Labels, Joel Salatin, a farmer who is blazing the trail for regenerative farm practices, and Sina McCullough, a Ph.D. in Nutrition who actually understands unpronounceable carbon chains, bring you on a journey from generally unhealthy food and farming to an ultimately healing place.
Through compelling discussions leavened with a dose of humor, they share practical and easily doable tips about:
•What to eat
•How to find it and prepare it
•How to save money and time in the kitchen
•How to stay true to your principles in our modern culture

What's for sale on the Farm?
Lots of stuff going on at the Farm which makes for busy but fun days. The Farmacy Shed is wired and ready to be insulated. We decided on insulating and finishing off the inside as we plan on keeping it open year round. We are in the process of doubling the size of our organic wood chip garden for next year and our neighbor Harold has built a hoop house, so next years organic vegetables and fruit should be plentiful for those shopping at the Farmacy. Our grass-fed beef is now available. Our first deliveries to our drop sites, Mohawk Valley Wellness, Yoga Shala and Garage Gym Oneida are set for 8/26. Please remember to select the correct delivery location at checkout.
Those purchasing beef and/or pork MUST fill out our member form and pay the one-time $25 fee. Filling this form out and joining as an official member keeps us in compliance with the regulating bodies. Their rules and regulations are not in our control so we highly appreciate your cooperation with this.
