About

Missing Willow Farm sits on 20 acres of heaven in SW Virginia, behind a half mile driveway, overlooking a private pond.  We’re retired engineers with a small herd of dairy goats that we milk for cheese, a small flock of sheep we keep for fleece and lamb, a few adorable chickens who give us fresh eggs, 75,000 bees, a livestock guardian dog and our border collie Jack who keeps everyone in line.  We sell Fridays at our local farmer’s market.  Throughout the season we carry lamb, honey, eggs, shiitake mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, asparagus, fingerling potatoes, leeks, herbs and homemade soap.

Our farm got its name in 2007 when my brand new birthday weeping willow tree disappeared within a week of planting it.   As it turns out, we have (er… had) a beaver problem.

    Great pictures Connie. Glad it snowed for a day of sledding. Michael lost your email address and would love to hear from you. Have a great New Year. I am also glad your farm is doing so well.

    I found your blog yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed! We also got some good ideas for our place. I have done canning, jellies, cheeses, chickens for many years. I am curious of what breed the roosters were that you “put out to pasture”. They were beautiful. Looking to get new chicks soon to replace older hens.. I like New Hamps, Wyandottes, Bantams, Production Reds. We are looking to get back into goats….just love ‘em. Haven’t tried sheep but if lucrative may give a try. Anyway, have a great season! – Joanne
