Podcast Episode 8: Our CSA (Can Sell Anything), updates on the orchard, puppies, ducks, greenhouse, farm stand and a new picket fence in the goat area.

This week we reveal our latest big project, the VR Meat CSA! Lucky customers get a monthly grab bag of our mangalitsa pork, st. croix lamb, homegrown chickens, eggs and much more. We also discuss the current state of affairs and other projects going on at the farm and what we have coming up in the next couple of weeks.


Hoping for lots of pluots, peaches, nectarines, apricots, apples, pears, etc this year out of our 100+ varieties orchard. These blossoms are a good start. #backyardorchard #freshfruit

Spent the morning getting the neighbor's lumber delivery truck out of a mud hole. We had three vehicles buried to the axles before it was over and had to use the Big Dodge, Brutus, John Deere and a 7000lb farm jack to yank everyone out.

How do ya'll like our hi-tech barn moving apparatus? Round fence posts, an old tractor tire and the sassy Massey. #patentpending #farmlife #neccessity
