Welcome to Arcadia Farm. We’re a family of five living and working on 18 acres up against the Alleghenies just west of the Blue Ridge in Western Virginia. The James River is a mile down the road, and across the bridge a ways you come to national forest with creeks, waterfalls, and good woods and swimming holes. We raise Nubian dairy goats, sheep, Great Pyrenees (livestock guardian dogs), ducks, chickens, bees, and a variety of other critters; and we grow fruit, herbs, veggies, and heat with wood and generally do-it-yourself with building maintenance and the raising and gathering of food and fiber from healthy soil. If we’re purists, we’re sloppy about it; mainly, we like having our hands in the source of our food and other nourishments. Many dear friends live nearby and help us. We hope you will enjoy following our adventures domestic and wild, near and abroad.

  1. I had to come to your blog to look at your faces since it’s been so long since I’ve seen them in person. I miss you and I miss your blog posts.
