Old Grant Wilson Had a Farm

Grant Wilson of Gramen Farms near Tomball gave a lively and frank presentation on how to eat locally with foods that are real and what our ancestors ate before there were chemicals and compounds. He explained that the body recognizes two things: food and poison. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t have advanced chemical degrees and so if it ingests a chemically altered substance, it won’t recognize it as either food or poison so it stores it as fat. Grant further explained the benefits of probiotics in milk and the healthfulness of grass-fed animal meat (if cows and chickens eat processed feed, their meat is compromised in its health benefits). There are no pesticides, chemicals, hormones, or antibiotics on Gramen Farm. Grant and his wife and two children live on the farm and it has grown from a customer base of about 200 to about 2000 in about three years.

Beware the microwave! It alters the chemical structure of food (and water) so your body doesn’t use the food to your advantage. We all tasted some real raw milk and kefir. Thanks to Grant and Gramen Farms for this interesting and edifying presentation. Next time we want all his war stories as a lobbyist back east!
