“Dear Lord; we beg but one boon more: Peace in the hearts of all men living, peace in the whole world this Thanksgiving.” ~Joseph Auslander

This week on the Solari Report we publish our next episode of the Food Series, in which Harry Blazer interviews Bill Niman in the third part of a fascinating three-part series with two of the most knowledgeable leaders in fresh food markets in America today. The first two parts of this series were Hog Heaven and the Godfather of Grass-Fed. As millions of people in the United States and Canada this week sit down to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner, it is appropriate that this episode will cover poultry.
No one knows more about raising the finest livestock than Bill and his team. Bill’s wife Nicolette is author of Righteous Porkchop: Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms and Defending Beef: the Case for Sustainable Beef Production. Together they own and operate Bill and Nicolette Niman’s Farm in Bolinas, California, raising and producing the finest lamb, beef, and turkey.
Bill is our hero this week on the Solari Report. The courage and persistence he has shown in his commitment to protecting our food supply and providing the finest meat available has been extraordinary. While giving thanks during this season, please give thanks for Bill and Nicolette and the farmers and ranchers like them who provide us with healthy, nutritious food. Who’s your farmer? Who’s your rancher? If possible, source your food from people you know and trust and remember to tell them, THANKS!
In Let’s Go to the Movies! I recommend a movie called The Blind Side that includes one of my favorite Thanksgiving dinner movie scenes. Based on a true story from Memphis, Tennessee, the journey of the Tuohy family describes many of the blessings that come from the values we treasure in this area of the world – love of God, family, home, education and community.
