I'm Hippo, a book-reading (yes, I did say book reading) hippopotamus from the African savanna and that's my best friend, Al, on my head.
In an effort to save our home and the rest of the world from the inexorable advance of industrial agriculture, we have added our weight (over 4000 pounds) to the vanguard of grassroots movements that are working to regenerate the Earth. Our specialty is sniffing out and telling you about the best places for food that will help tip the scale towards Earth-restorative traditions. We're starting in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA.
The Scales Family Farm
We are Martice, Amy, Mason and Maxwell Scales. We are a family that is on a mission to live life as fully and as naturally as possible by getting back to nature and farming.
To start things off, Al wrote a poem.
Love of Juicy tomatoes and little Brothers
Sunshine, Dirt, Wind, and flying kites in wide-open spaces
Love of Dandelions
Sunflowers and Soft Baby Faces
