We'll send you a tasty sampler of the products coming from our food forests, which will include a small 4oz sleeve of prosciutto or capicola, and a small bag of polenta from our indigenous gardens.
The only catch is... there's a wait. We're not doing our production gardens until next year, and the charcuterie you'll be getting are starting their year-long hang this August, so you won't be getting your reward until the Fall of 2020.

Chris is known to mutter "clever girl..." upon discovering these pigs escaped from their paddocks, as Robert Muldoon uttered before meeting his untimely end at the hands of an equally clever but far more dangerous Velociraptor in 'Jurassic Park.'
Our Clever Girl Tee is an homage to this pig, nicknamed "American Iberico" for the excellent charcuterie that results from the pigs' unique fat distribution and musculature.
Come join us at the farm in Virginia's beautiful Northern Neck for a farm tour, dinner, a butchery workshop, and beers at Montross Brewery! You'll also be put up for the evening at the lovely Inn at Montross, and head home with a bag full of meaty goodies to whip up at home.
Please note you must secure you own travel to and from Montross, VA.
