Summer at Snug Valley Farm

Happy Summer here on the farm. We are welcoming the warmer weather. In between haying, Ben and our farm help Loren have been busy moving herds of beef every day to fresh pastures, transplanting pumpkins into the ground, moving our growing flock of sheep, and tending to our pigs each morning. It feels good to be getting well into our grazing season. We welcome you to place your orders online and then we will contact you to schedule a pick-up at the farm.
