Welcome to the Resource Depot!

We know that it's hard to find trustworthy, health-related resources. Our goal with this page is to help us all make progress in stewarding the body that God has given each of us. We're collecting food sources, sources for household goods (coming soon), leader profiles, and podcasts that we learn from on a regular basis. We hope that this information will bless your family.

- Mark & Sophie

“Fundamentally, stewardship is about exercising our God-given dominion over His creation, reflecting the image of our creator God in His care, responsibility, maintenance, protection, and beautification of His creation.”

Azure Standard

Food Source

Azure Standard

Azure Standard has been an exceptional source for attaining quality food and household products while keeping in mind both our budget and health standards. With Azure Standard, we don’t have to look far to find a huge selection of products all in one place. There is no fee to join, and orders are shipped monthly. You don’t have to buy something every month and there is no monthly subscription. While buying in bulk from Azure can be beneficial for saving money, it is not required for every product. You get to choose the size of your bulk food — many items come in 5-pound, 25-pound, and 50-pound options. You can always choose the smaller size of a product to see if you like it instead of committing to a large order. Some products we love from Azure Standard are organic produce, spices, herbs, quality dairy, canned goods, baking ingredients, cleaning supplies, hygiene products, and supplements. The groceries are delivered to drop points every month. See the drop point map here. We love that Azure is a Christian, family-owned business who cares about creating healthier food, soil, and people.

Domestic Dominion

Household Goods

Domestic Dominion

Our friends, Marco and Ashley, launched Domestic Dominion after much work formulating a laundry detergent that really works! We use their detergent, and it's more effective than the homemade detergent we were mixing, and it's vastly safer than the detergent from the store. 


From Domestic Dominion: "Domestic Dominion seeks to create quality products that aid the homemaker in serving those in the home and to create a culture of joy, health, and stewardship to the Glory of God. What’s wrong with the detergent I have? Store-bought detergent likely contains several synthetic chemicals and fragrances which are toxic. Fragrances are known to not only be irritants but also have several other negative effects on the body, such as disrupting the endocrine system and proper production of hormones; they have also been linked to causing cancer. More than that, liquid detergent comes in thick plastic containers, which leads to too much waste and the release of even more toxins in our homes and environments. Why our detergent? Our detergent contains only the essential effective ingredients. Not only is it completely natural and good for the environment, it is non-caustic, hypoallergenic, highly concentrated, and works with hard water—all while maintaining the integrity of your clothing. The combination of ingredients in this detergent is designed to bring out the best results for the largest variety of uses."

Joel Salatin

Leader

Joel Salatin

Joel Salatin has been a tremendous inspiration to me in starting Grandad Farms. Joel is a Christian farmer in the Shenandoah Valley who loves God’s designs in creation and leads by example in honoring those designs as they relate to farming. One example: mimicking the natural, frequent, high-density movement of animals across the land with the use of new technology, primarily electric fencing. My favorite Salatin books are You Can Farm and Pasture Poultry Profits. If you’re interested in short, high-caliber pieces of content about stewardship, government, and American culture on a regular basis, I highly recommend his blog, The Lunatic Farmer

- Mark


From John Salatin's bio: "Joel Salatin, 64, calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer. Others who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture, and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don’t like him call him a bio-terrorist, Typhoid Mary, charlatan, and starvation advocate."

Weston A. Price Foundation

Leader

Weston A. Price Foundation

In the early 1930s, a Cleveland dentist named Dr. Weston A. Price traveled to isolated people groups and did an in-depth analysis of the foods they consumed daily. In comparison to the American diet of his day, these diets provided at least four times the water-soluble vitamins, calcium, and other minerals, and at least TEN times the fat-soluble vitamins, primarily from animal foods such as butter,  shellfish, organ meats, poultry eggs, fish eggs, and other animal fats. Price’s findings push back on the “politically correct” nutrition advice Americans receive today, including “avoid saturated fats”, “limit cholesterol”, “use more polyunsaturated oils”, “avoid red meat”, “cut back on eggs”, “restrict salt”, “eat lean meat and drink low-fat milk”, “limit fat consumption to 30 percent of calories”, “eat 6-11 servings of grains per day”, “eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day”, and “eat more soy foods.” The Weston A. Price Foundation is an amazing reference for traditional recipes, dietary principles, and education on organic and biodynamic farming, pasture feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting, and nurturing techniques. Nourishing Traditions and Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care written by Sally Fallon Morell, the president of WAPF, was the catapult for my journey into true healing and nourishment through food. The Weston A. Price Foundation is a massive treasure trove, and here's a good starting place: Timeless Principles of Healthy Traditional Diets

- Sophie


From the Weston A.  Price Foundation: "The Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF) is your source for accurate information on nutrition and health, always aiming to provide the scientific validation of traditional foodways. People seeking health today often condemn certain food groups — such as grains, dairy foods, meat, salt, fat, sauces, sweets and nightshade vegetables — but the Wise Traditions Diet is inclusive, not exclusive."

John Moody

Leader

John Moody

God has many things to say about how we steward, so Christians should be the ones who care the most about stewarding His creation. John Moody adeptly makes that case in his talk, Undermining the Designer. In addition to that talk, Christian men can benefit from the two Hard Men Podcast episodes he did with the host, Eric Conn: How to Naturally Boost Your Testosterone with John Moody, Part 1 and Part 2. The statistics he shares about modern mens’ testotestorne levels in comparison to men in recent history are concerning, but he gives practical advice. 

- Mark


From John Moody: “I am not your typical farmer. Most people probably don’t consider me typical anything. Farming and homesteading were not something I ever planned to do. But I am now glad I get to do them. Growing up, I enjoyed a varied diet of video games, cartons, and processed foods. Dental decay, seasonal allergies, and constant sickness were the inevitable result – a result that doctors and other(s) denied was connected with my family’s food and lifestyle choices. In my early 20s, I was waylaid by duodenal ulcers, my body’s final warning that some things were dreadfully awry. Thankfully, I listened. Over the course of a year, my fiancee (now wife) Jessica and I completely changed our understanding of food – what is food? How should it be raised? How should it be prepared? This lead to thinking long and deep about farming, and eventually, moving out to a farm of our own.“

Farmer Bill's Provisions

Food Source

Farmer Bill's Provisions

Farmer Bill’s biltong puts jerky to shame. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner (Mark was his name, actually) at a conference in Texas and purchasing some biltong from him. It was the perfect texture and taste. They source high quality beef and bison, combine it with a small number of savory ingredients, and cure it in apple cider vinegar and salt. The density of protein is astounding. It’s our go-to meat snack from a Christian company. 

- Mark


From Farmer Bill's: “The modern diet is destroying your health. Look at the ingredient list of most jerkies, and you will be shocked to see there are seed oils, added sugars, and industrial fillers. Biltong is a natural product. It doesn't need sweeteners, fillers, soy sauce, or seed oils. If you are avoiding these ingredients, we know how hard it is to find quality food. Look no further."
