About Us
Vernal Vibe Rise is a small, solo-female, permaculture farm in Renick, West Virginia. I raise a variety of heritage animals within my integrated and organic Field and Forestâ„¢ land rotation system, and my land also supports the growth of a variety of edible perennial plants and trees.

The animals that live here with me teach me more each day about how they want their lives to be; they enjoy being outside and eating fresh grass, nuts, and roots at their leisure. The animals love the freedom to roam the pasture, rest under the shade of great oaks, and interact with one another as they choose. As I dedicate my time and energy to provide these animals with everything that they need, they, in turn, offer their best gifts to you.

Practices
I use truly clean and natural animal husbandry methods, including intensive rotational grazing on organically-managed pasture, to raise rare-breed, heritage pork (the delicious Ossabaw Island Hog in particular) from farrow through finish. I sell American Chinchilla rabbit meat, Hog Island lamb, and eggs from Delaware hens, as well as organic perennial edibles, such as peaches, asparagus, herbs, and apples. I am able to assure my customers of the quality and purity of Vernal Vibe Rise products because the animals and plants have lived their whole lives on my farm, under gentle and constant care.

True perennial sustainability is my keen aim on Vernal Vibe Rise. The animals enjoy shade and sun, grass and water, and lots of regular attention. I believe that Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) have the potential to be dangerous and I therefore avoid them in my diet and make the same clean choices for all of my livestock. This means that I have to make an extra effort to source supplemental feed for my pigs that is completely GMO-free. All supplemental feed for VVR poultry and rabbits is not only GMO-free, but entirely organically grown, as are the pastures from which VVR sheep and other livestock eat. These commitments mean additional expense and time, but I certainly believe it is worth it to know that my animals are healthy and the meat I sell is truly clean. I choose to avoid artificial chemicals on my land and in my home. I do not use chemical methods to keep the animals free of worms and ticks; instead, I offer them garlic, black walnuts, and food-grade diatomaceous earth. Any supplemental feed is carefully chosen with an eye for quality, locality, and true nutrition. Similarly, the perennial fruits and vegetables that grow at VVR are never treated with any artificial pesticides or chemicals. I work within the farm's permaculture system to produce rich compost and manure to nourish my pastures and gardens. Thus, the animals feed the plants just as the plants feed the animals.

On Vernal Vibe Rise, I can speak with assuredness about the quality of the products that I sell, as the animals and plants that have offered up these foods were planted, born, and raised here on my farm. I spend every day of my life working with these plants and animals, and what a blessing to do such work!
