Intro to Organic with Coop Dreams

In Episode 2 of Coop Dreams Season 3, Brad Hauter met with Jim and Kevin at our Texas Mill Outlet in Lubbock to discuss the demand for organic feed, as well as the differences between organics and Non-GMO. In this video, Kevin highlights one key factor: all organic is non-GMO, but not all non-GMO is organic. The difference between conventional agriculture and non-GMO is simply the seed, as all other conventional practices are allowed under Non-GMO Project Verification standards. Organic truly is the gold standard, as evidenced by the chart below: For further information on GMOs, check out our article “GMO? Or Non-GMO? That is the question!” on our...

New Country Organics: A Message from CEO Jim Campbell

New Country Organics: A Message from CEO Jim Campbell

By now, some of you will have heard our news: New Country Organics is expanding to Texas and the southwest. While there is certainly a business case for our expansion (more on that below), as a company we are dedicated to being an active part of creating new – and supporting existing – organic economies. Not only do we work to create more organic acreage, we participate in and help nurture emerging, vital, socially responsible economies based on the development, use, integration and expansion of organics. Now over the years, I’ve been blessed by a rewarding career working for large and successful companies. I’ve had the chance to work on projects all over the world and during some of the most exciting and challenging times of the past few decades – from the collapse of communism to recovery from the Great Recession. Despite all this, there is no place I’d rather be, right now, than bringing our small firm, New Country Organics to America’s southwest, with our recently announced acquisition of the assets of Economy Mills in Lubbock Texas. You can read more about it at www.newcountryorganics.com/lubbock.  

 Most senior professionals are lucky enough to find meaning in their work that goes beyond the proverbial pay check, as it takes a huge amount of personal commitment, focus and abundant energy to be a success in those kinds of large corporate roles. And yet, how many of us can truly find meaning in what we do?  How many of us are nervous about giving up the big corporate role and trying something very different? I left financial services in 2014, and...

Jillian Lowery, New Country Organics Farm and Garden Consultant, Educator

Jillian spent the day teaching at Creative Works Farm, yesterday, and she made the news. Way to go Jillian! Here is a link to the story: http://www.newsleader.com/story/news/local/2015/10/11/education-and-fun-at-the-center-of-farm-event/73785626/ The New Country Organics booth:  Teaching kids about DNA:  Jillian’s lesson: “This is an old photo from the last time I did the DNA craft. Every kid that walked up was asked to explain DNA in their own words. We then discussed that it’s our “genetic blueprint,” the material that makes us “uniquely us.” There are 3.2 billion base pairs in the human body (also explained that A always binds with T, C with G, etc.) and these base pairs code for amino acids which code for different proteins (hair, skin, etc.). We share 50% of our DNA with bananas and 98% with chimpanzees. All living things have DNA, including strawberries, plants, etc. The structure of DNA is important because the double helix allows the DNA to compress and pack more information into smaller space and increases base pair interaction. The kids loved it and I had several older kids come back with younger kids and *they* taught the lesson :)” ​ If you have a question about using our products in your organic farm or garden, please give Jillian a call, she knows her stuff....

We Are Taking Back The Food Chain One Organic Egg At A Time

You are doing great work. If McDonald’s is feeling the economic pressure of demands to drop conventional industrial agricultural practices then the movement to reclaim the food chain is reaching powerful proportions. Ten years is a long time to forecast moving to cage-free, though. Industrial Agriculture is stuck in its ways. So much work to do, still, but this is a great indicator of consumer power in the marketplace. Demand organic! Thanks for taking back the food chain one organic egg at a time. Thank you for supporting organics!...
