Tears often flow in our Farm Store.
Not sad tears, but instead, tears of immense joy whenever one of you drops in and shares with me your story of healing that takes place when you and your family start eating a traditional foods diet that often includes kefir.
Some of this healing may seem like minor, pesky issues – chronic constipation or diarrhea, heart burn and acid reflux, persistent digestive issues – – but when you heal these seemingly minor things you get your life back, your energy and your time, and improved relationships.
And from such an easy thing like letting milk ferment on your counter!
In today’s video you will hear a few of these powerful and moving success stories I hear all the time. Listen to Jennifer’s story, mom of a 9 year old who’s life is forever changed due to eating kefir and she believes it’s a miracle food.
After the video leave me a comment – scroll down below here and tell me what health improvements you’ve experienced on a traditional foods diet!
Please share with as much detail as you can because your words may provide a breakthrough for someone else and be just the nudge they need to improve their nutrition and their health.

Science is catching up with us farmers. I know we’re doing something right when we continue getting more and more calls from people frustrated that they can’t find relief with our western medical system (including calls from the medical practitioners themselves).
Then a friend suggests they call us and start to change how they eat and — voilà!! — they change how they feel.
Forward this post to your friends – you never know whose life you will help heal because you shared.
We love supporting you in your quest to eat better and feel better.
Kefir Health Benefits
Rich in probiotics
Kefir contains between 7-10 billion colony-forming units of beneficial bacteria.
These probiotics improve digestive health, strengthen your immune system, and aid in the production of vitamins B12 and K (which kefir contains).
Good source of protein
One cup of kefir made with whole milk contains approximately 10 grams of protein, including all 8 essential amino acids.
Improves blood sugar levels
Like milk, kefir is low on the glycemic index (16) and can help regulate the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas. Moreover, low-glycemic index foods like kefir make you feel full faster and therefore aid weight loss.
Rich in nutrients
One cup of kefir, for instance, contains 10 percent of our RDI of vitamin, 25 percent of our RDI of vitamin D, 30 percent of our RDI of calcium and 8 grams of fat (of which 5 are saturated). It also contains varying quantities of phosphorus,iron, magnesium, manganese, and copper. Long-term consumption of kefir has been linked to improved skin and hair, superior cardiovascular health and immunity, treatment of constipation, and the elimination of unhealthy food cravings.
So, drink up!!
