Verde Farm Happenings

Hi farm friends,

I know all of you are getting ready for the holidays. It’s such a wonderful time and a busy time as well. We are in the middle of so many changes here at Verde Farm. We are preparing to sell our beloved home and small acreage to move to a farm out in the country.

We are only moving about twenty minutes away but the change is going to be a big one for us. We’ve been blessed to find a pristine, emerald two hundred acre haven. A charming 1872 farm house sits on the property and we are in the process of painting and freshening it up a bit. The pasture, grass and fresh water brook running through it will be the new home to all our Verde Farm critters.

We are thinking we will be “Verde Farm at the Old Pinkerman Place.” The Pinkerman’s were one-time owners of the farm and part of its history. Have you ever moved a farm and if so, did you keep the name or create a new name?

In addition to all this, we have added two new piggies to our kunekune herd. Oliver and Oleander came to live with us about a week ago. We are really pleased with these two. Oliver is cream and Oley (short for Oleander) is ginger and black. Both are double wattled and will be part of our breeding program in the future.

Pansy and Porter are doing great and we are expecting a new litter later this month. If you are interested in adding one of these precious pigs to your farm or home, please contact us about making a deposit to hold your pig.

On another note, so many of you reach out to us about booking the farm for events and weddings and we are so grateful for your interest. Due to the move, we are not booking any further events at the current farm. We are still contemplating hosting weddings at the Old Pinkerman Place but that has not been decided just yet.

We wish you all a wonderful holiday season and will keep you posted on future farm happenings as we welcome our new piglets and make our official move.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,

That sounds exciting Amy! You'll have a lot more space to add more critters to your place should you want to. Is the new place still in West Virginia?

Have fun with your new place and update us when you get settled in.

Hi Amy,

I'm so glad you posted as I wondered what was going on with you guys. Glad to know you are safe and sound.

Wow - how exciting to find a beautiful farm for sale. I don't envy moving all the animals - what a job!

Hopefully you will be able to post before Christmas but if not, I hope you have a merry one!

So wonderful to hear from my ole bloggy buddies. The farm is in WV-just about 20 minutes from where we are now. So much to do and so little time but we will make it happen eventually. I will keep you posted along the way.
Merry Christmas!

What a great opportunity! I am going to look forward to all the new happenings at your place.

Your pigs are absolutely adorable. This is probably a dumb question but are the lunes pigs raised for pets?

Happy spring!
