Welcome to Arcadia Farm.  We live and work 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 fiber from healthy soil.  We hope you will enjoy following our adventures domestic and wild, near and abroad.

  1. You inspire others to genuinely work to ‘live’ instead of the consumer rat race mentality of “living to work” with no quality of life and no connection or enjoyment with nature. Your twins are gorgeous and your lifestyle is admirable. May the light and the love of the infinite creator surround and protect you, your loved ones and all creatures that are an ingredient of your life.

  2. I read your article in Taproot magazine. It was very timely. I was diagnosed with mold toxicity one month ago. I have had it for 20 years. We have two children age 6 and 16 who are waiting for their results to come back from Real Time lab. We are living in alternative housing and trying to figure out what to do with our house. I was sitting in the bath feeling very alone in the world but feeling happy to read my new issue of Taproot. As I approached the end of the magazine I was feeling all the loss of the last month when I turned the page to your article. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It helps to know that I am not the only one going through this. Natalie West
