Review of Seki Bonsai Nursery and Farm by TexasRealFood
The Seki Bonsai Nursery and Farm started Jim Stone fell in love with the Bonsai plant when he was sixteen years old. For this reason, he studied the plant under many American and International teachers. Today, Jim offers a wide selection of bonsai plants and landscape plants, including unfinished, unstyled, and finished materials. He also provides tools for pottery. Bonsai consultations and private classes about Bonsai plants are also available at the farm.Aside from offering bonsai services and products, the farm also offers seasonal produce, farm goods, grass-fed beef, goat, and poultry products. Currently, they have Araucanas and Marans from which they gather unusually-colored eggs. They also have two flocks of Rio Grande Wild TurkeysIn 2012, the farm opened an apiary while offering hive removals to increase their honey bee production.
The term “grass fed” (as opposed to grain fed) refers to meat obtained from cows that were raised on a diet of grass and other forage, such as clover; situated in pasture and, when fresh grass is unavailable, hay. This helps to denote the difference between livestock that has been raised in feedlots and generally fed a diet of soy and corn, versus animals that have had access to their natural feeding environment in pasture, which contains grasses, wildflowers, and herbs. This term overlaps with “pasture-raised” and will usually be seen together. Grass-fed beef is also believed to taste better, and be better for the environment, too. There are several organizations that offer a certification for Grass Fed, such as the American Grassfed Association, Certified Grassfed by A Greener World, and Pasture for Life, to name a few.
Some of the businesses listed in our directory will be using the same principles as Certified Naturally Grown farmers, but without the certification. Certifications can often be expensive and time consuming for most farmers to participate in, and therefore we feel it is important to acknowledge those who practice good land stewardship, without certification.
