“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” Thomas Jefferson

Dependant on Refrigeration
We in American society today are so dependant on refrigeration. In fact the bigger the refrigerator the better. Well here at Whisper Wind we want to cut down and possibly cut out our refrigeration needs in the future. Why would we want to do this? How can we possibly do this? We NEED refrigeration! Well, no we don't. My grandparents did just fine without it as did generations before them. Only the wealthier folks in the city had an ice box (the kind of refrigerator that took a huge block of ice delivered every other day by the ice man). Folks in the country didn't have ice delivery, so they had no need of an ice box. How did they live without refrigeration? Well, I have decided that I am going to share what I have learned about non-refrigeration as we here at Whisper Wind farm slowly but surely dwindle our need for that energy sucking monster. One think hurricane Ivan taught us was that it was really bad, really expensive to depend on a refrigerator or freezer. So come join us in our quest towards independence and away from dependence.
