This blog started as “Jeanmarie’s Butter Blog,” then became “Random Acts of Green,” reflecting a broadening of my focus. After all, butter isn’t my only passion in life. Lately it’s raising chickens and goats, and green living in general. Next was “Chicken Scratches.” This blog now shares the name of my fresh egg business and the farm where I live with my boyfriend. I’ve been trying to figure out how to eat, and to live, since I first started reading the backs of cereal boxes as a kid in Logan, Utah. I spent 13 years in Japan. Now I live in Mendocino County, California, with three dogs, five cats, 38 chickens and 7 goats. I love to cook, read, keep chickens, and snuggle with the dogs. I add butter whenever possible, no apologies.
