The wise king Solomon tells us in the book of Ecclesiastes that there is “nothing new under the sun.” This is a comfort during this difficult time of living in a world racked with fear and sorrow surrounding COVID-19. I find comfort knowing that although the world may seem to be crumbling now, we will in fact, one day, be on the other side of this pandemic.
Many of our customers have asked whether or not we will continue to have products in stock and available for their needs. The answer is an unequivocal YES. Throughout the relentless 24/7 Corona virus news cycle, we will continue to farm, produce, and ship our nutritional whole foods from goat milk.
Our hearts go out to those of you who have been negatively impacted by this virus. Whether you’re suffering economically, physically, or, in most of our cases, emotionally, we are mourning with you.
Rather than list for you all the ways Mt. Capra is addressing the virus threat on our farm and processing facility, I think there may be more spiritual health in the idea of turning off the endless prophecies of doom and gloom for a time. I am recommending we all “fast” or at least implement a serious “reduction in consumption” of 24/7 COVID TV.
The world won’t be saved by us spending vast amounts of mental and emotional capital consuming media, most of which is dedicated to out-sensationalizing one another. Likewise, the world won’t end if we commit the next week of our lives to, as my friend Dr. Matt Angove says, “accumulate health.” Put your phone away, turn off the TV, get outside, read books to your kids, start growing things. Accumulate physical, mental, and spiritual health by taking a break from the statistics, talking heads, and prophets of doom. If we can make it a week, I can almost guarantee our lives and the lives of our families and loved ones will be improved…significantly.
To help in giving you something else to think about, I made a short farm tour video yesterday of what is happening right now on the farm. Since 1928 we’ve been bringing you the goodness of goat milk and during this time when fear is presented as the norm, there is a family farm with 3 generations living, managing, and healing the earth via the wonder of regenerative agriculture.
New life is abounding. Baby goats are being born. The world is awaking from a time of darkness and is bursting forth with life.
Easter is coming.
What will you fill your mind with during this time of new life?
