I received the following letter from one of my clients.
It made me choke up! Here's the translation:
It made me choke up! Here's the translation:
"Good evening. Hope all is well with you. I have to share something with you... My father has for many years had high blood pressure, a lot of excess weight and is a diabetic on insulin... He has finally changed his diet.
On the 23rd of August he made up his mind and started eating according to paleo. The results came fast. He lost a lot of weight. Today he was at the doctor's - in 4 months he has decreased his insulin intake from 26 (extremely high) to 6 units. The doctor believes that my father can go off the insulin completely very soon. The doctor has rarely seen such an improvement. My father has been on insulin for many years. Thought I would share this with you. Isn't it fantastic. You were the start of this journey... Thank you for the inspiration. Big hug from A."

Ain't this about the prettiest paddock you've ever seen? 😜 Manure and mouldy silage is now covering our #hugelbeds . We're keeping our fingers crossed that will do the trick for a big harvest next year. #paulssonpaleo #selfsufficiency #odling

Peppa helping move all the rocks she and George have dug up. We will be growing lots and lots of vegetables in this field next year, so we are preparing the ground ready for a protective winter cover. #pigs #pppigupdate #linderöd #Hampshire #vegetable #usingpigstodig #selfsufficiency #organic

#Repost @nomispohsib with @repostapp ・・・ Boss man! Our impressive gutefår ram seems pretty chilled considering it's the time of year his ewes are in season. We are hoping for a fresh flock of lambs again, next April. #gutefår #sheep #ram #bossman #organic #grassfed #selfsufficient #farming #paulssonpaleo

We had a lovely weekend exploring the countryside and their new home. Half of the house was built in the 17th century and the other half in the 19th Century, it oozed history and was a beautiful maze of staircases, interlinking rooms and roaring fireplaces. It was a great place for the children to charge around and play hide-and-seek.
|Beautiful Devon countryside.|

Both Duncan and Linnea have been avid followers of our exploits from the very beginning, so we were really interested to hear their plans and see what they intend to do whilst living in the Devon countryside.
Although, they only moved in June this year, they had already grown some of their own vegetables, harvested apples from their orchard and met locals who were willing to help out and pass on advice and life experience. Linnea has been on a bee course and intends to start her own colony next year to help with their planned wild flower meadow and to harvest some honey.

Extended the pig field today, so that Peppa and George have more grass to turn over. The right side of the field is frozen mud and not easy to walk on. #pppigupdate #paulssonpaleo #farming #peppaandgeorge #selfsufficient #organic #grassfed

|Gorgeous free range Linderöd piglets.|
As slaughter season continues, we have now taken our learnings to a different level. Last week we had the opportunity to do more hands-on slaughtering than we had ever done before. One of our self-sufficient friends has some lovely Linderöd pigs and we were able to slaughter one of the 4 month old boar piglets with her expert guidance. Tina's two sows produced a total of 12 boar piglets and she is now culling them before they become sexually mature and do the deed with their mothers and sisters. Read more about Tina and her farm on her website: www.genevadnygard.se.
Without any high-tech equipment, the whole process from shot to pork in suitable cuts takes pretty much all day. It is very time-consuming and quite messy: first shooting and bleeding, followed by scraping off hair, then carefully removing the stomach and guts and finally butchering.
|Very careful opening of the stomach cavity.|
|"What do we do with this?"|
As tricky and scary as it felt, it gave us more confidence that we will be able to do the same thing with our lambs next season, saving them the journey to the butcher and us the cost of having someone else do it.
A big thank you to Tina for all her hand holding throughout!
