Wednesday, November 8, 2017

The public is invited to attend the EarthCare fall forum, "Happy Cows - Healing
Planet - Healthy You," at Greenway Farm in Hixson this Saturday.  A meet and greet with pastry, bagels, coffee, tea, etc. starts at 10 a.m., while the forum begins at 10:30 a.m.

The speaker will be Marshall Teague.  Mr. Teague and his wife Katherine own and operate
EdenThistle Land Stewardship Company.

"Come hear how Chattanooga-based EdenThistle compares to industrial farming, as all of their livestock is pasture-raised and never given steroids, antibiotics or GMO feeds.  Their cows follow a rotational grazing pattern, assuring an endless supply of fresh grass to eat while allowing the topsoil time to restore itself. A similar grazing pattern is used for their pigs and chickens as well," officials said.

See their website at for more information, including directions to Greenway Farm and the forum schedule.

"We will be giving door prizes of EdenThistle products, so be sure to register to attend either on our website at, or by calling 706-278-3979, or by emailing," officials said.

The event is free and lunch will be provided.
