Fresh homemade broth or stock is a magical healing food, and regarded as an important staple by the Weston A. Price Foundation diet. Drink 1 cup daily to improve your health!
The whole pastured chicken is skinned and the bones boiled for 24 hours. What a time saver to have the farm do this for you! The broth is made without vegetables (for those who have sensitivities to various veggies).
Use the broth instead of water when you make rice, and use it as a soup base. Or warm it up and drink it straight from a mug. Ideal when making baby food puree since it adds great flavor, bone and teeth building minerals, and helps foods be more easily digested.
Chickens are NOT fed any soy. See Chicken Category page for details on their natural diet, how they are treated, and their healthy life.
This homemade broth/stock has no similarity to the broth you buy at the grocery store (even if you buy organic), so don't be fooled!
True bone broth is made by boiling bones and pieces of meat in purified water for 36 hours (for beef bones) or 24 hours (for chicken bones). The liquid is then strained and cooled.
The resulting broth is a nutritious gelatinous food that aids in digestion of proteins.
The bone broth made by Miller's Organic Farm contains natural gelatin which is a rich source of collagen (for your skin), glycine (an amino acid which aid digestion and improve protein assimilation), natural antibiotics, peptides, anti-infammatory substances, and important minerals for bones and teeth, but in a unique form that is easy for the body to absorb (unlike supplements).
These minerals include calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals.
Beef bone broth is particularly rich in material from cartilage and tendons like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine for joint pain relief.

Reducing Effects of Phthalate Exposure
"Plenty of homemade bone broths in the diet on a regular basis is a dietary strategy that can help tremendously with any phthalate exposure that does occur despite a womans best efforts. Bone broth is extremely high in the amino acid glycine via natural gelatin which is essential for the liver to adequately perform its detoxification duties. In fact, the liver is greatly hampered if there isnt enough glycine in the diet so it makes sense to consume liberal amounts of bone broth which includes glycine in a form that is very easily absorbed."

ARTICLES ON BONE BROTH:
From Weston A. Price Foundation
"Peasant societies still make broth. It is a necessity in cultures that do not use milk because only stock made from bones and dairy products provides calcium in a form that the body can easily assimilate. It is also a necessity when meat is a luxury item, because gelatin in properly made broth helps the body use protein in an efficient way."
