Mamushi Nature Farmed Swine: What is a Nature farmed pig?
Pay the price for, and eat the best foods
What is a Mamushi Nature Farm Swine Initiative?
Japanese Nature farming was not designed to include the farming of animals. Mamushi Nature farming is a Japanese Nature farming methodology that does, however, include both plants and animals. Mamushi Nature farm holds fast to the idea that humankind, from the beginning of their existence, were hunter-gatherers. Hunter-gatherers eat both plants and animals. Maybe we will evolve to a time in the future where we will only eat plants. We have not arrived at that point in time yet as a race of humans.
Having said the above, it has been my intention as the founder of a new approach to Japanese Nature Farming to include both plants and animals. I studied Mokichi Okada's approach for 4 years while I was residing in Gotemba, Japan, a location at the base of Mount Fuji. Meishi-Sama (Mokichi Okada) (1882-1955 C.E.) was the founder of the Church of World Messianity, Johrei and a Japanese Nature Farming Methodology.
My 4 years in Japan, which enabled me to observe, and oftentimes, work with Japanese Nature farmers, was just enough time to acquire a basic understanding of agribusiness methods as practiced by this religious community.
Japanese Nature farmed foods, which are strictly vegetables and fruits, are undisputedly, the very best foods that money can purchase at any price. The foods are absolutely beautiful and the tastes of the different foods are perfectly flawless.
I experienced a mild depression upon having to leave the ecological niche where I lived in Japan, to return to my home in the United States of America, because it was one of the most perfect places where I have ever lived. I enjoyed the best health that I have ever had living there, at the base of Mount Fuji. Having had the opportunity to climb to the top of the mountain Fuji once a year for 4 years, the mountain presented more to me than a visual image of an inactive volcano (or maybe active, it still may be active, to a degree, I don't really know. I don't know if anyone actually knows for sure of its life, that is, its activity level). Anyway, the mountain is special to anyone who has ever seen it, whether they be a Japanese person or a non-Japanese person. The mountain has meaning and a spirituality that cannot be described in words for those individuals who are fortunate enough to have climbed to the top of it. One's relationship to the mountain occurs "as one experience the climb" and "the decent from the mountain." Being on top of the mountain does not involve "the suffering experience of going up and going down" the mountain.
Where am I going with all of this? What ever happen to the main theme of this composition, "The idea of a Mamushi Nature Farm Swine Initiative?"
Well, ideas for how I would approach Agribusiness after I returned to my birthplace, family farm, came to me while I was living and enjoying Life at the base of Mount Fuji. My valley, here at Mamushi Nature Farm, is a very special ecological niche also, by the way. I always say, Love grows here. Therefore, everything that lives here, whether it be people, farm animals, domestic animals, or plants, contains Love within their substance and their spirit. By the way, we here at Mamushi believe that spiritual things or ideas are also tangible. In other words, here at Mamushi Nature Farm everything has "substance."
Our swine are valuable, above and beyond what you will get if you procure pork from other places, because of the stewardship that we exercise over them. We own nothing here at Mamushi Nature Farm. We honor the idea that we have dominion over them, a concept given to us by God.
As it reads in Genesis 1:26-28,
"And God said,
Let us make man in our image,
after our likness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea,
and over the fowl of the air,
and over the cattle,
and over all the earth,
and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God created he him;
male and female created he them.
And God blessed them,
and God said unto them,
Be fruitful, and multiply,
and replenish the earth, and subdue it:
and have dominion over the fish of the sea,
and the fowl of the air,
and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."
And this is the way it was, then,
and this is the way it is, now,
and this is the way it always will be, forever.
I approach agribusiness walking in the same footprints that Adam and Eve left behind. I walk upon the same pathway that the greatest farmers, scholars and believers walked upon, who came before me.
And this is the way it is.
As we go, Peace.
