Ag Innovation News : LUSENET : Beyond the Sidewalks : One Thread

My April 2001 issue of Ag Innovation News came today in the mail and I thought some of you might be interested in seeing the Internet version. It's a great way to see what small-scale farmers are doing to create and market value-added products from their farms.

They do offer a place on the web to sign up for a free subscription to the paper version but I don't know if they'll mail it to people who live outside of Minnesota.

Jim, you just made my day. For several years now I have been wanting to make my own mattress but I have been puzzling over what I want it stuffed with. I kept thinking there had to be something better than what is currently available. And I didn't like the idea of straw or pine needles, etc. A wool mattress is the absolutely perfect answer. I have been planning to raise wool sheep and alpaca so this is also a perfect answer for me. I know I won't wait to get my sheep before I make the mattress. I'm going to the Maryland sheep fair on the first weekend in May so I'll be looking to see if I can get some sheep shearings that haven't been processed yet for anything. That way I can process it the way I want. I can't wait to try this.
