I grew up on fresh milk. From the cow to the glass. Papa taught me to milk before I was 7 years old. Betsy, the jersey milk cow was the first cow I milked. Who knew there was a best milk for the body? I took for granted the goodness of raw, organic milk in the morning. In the last 30 years there has been a strong push to make us believe raw milk is not good for us. It’s even illegal in many states. We are told raw milk, which has been used since the dawn of civilization, is no longer safe unless it’s treated with pasteurization and homogenization. If we are to believe the advocates for the pasteurization of all milk at all costs, raw milk is as bad as rat poison. The fact is, the human race existed long before Pasteur was ever heard of and milk has been consumed in its raw form since the beginning of time.

- Rhonda Crank
Hello, My name is Rhonda. Our family tries to live as close to nature as is possible for us in a modern world. Organic farming and Non-GMO food practices are how we live. Life is often chaotic, stressful, and sometimes painful so we want to be a source of inspiration, help, information, and strength for all those seeking to live a more self-sustaining lifestyle. The Farmer’s Lamp was started because so many people were asking us questions, seeking help, and just generally interested in how we live. We have taken up a lesson my grandfather taught me, “There’s as many ways of gettin’ a farm job done as there’s farmers. Ya gotta be willing to listen, help, and learn from ‘em, even if it’s just to see what not to do.” Join us on this ever changing, ever captivating journey.
