The Washington County Board of Supervisors did not pass our resolution in support of small farmers and consumer choice. As of now it seems this issue is laid to rest but we must be diligent and steadfast if we wish to remain free. As a farmer I have exhausted my ability to defend the rights of consumers. It is the consumers themselves who must stand up to protect their own rights if they wish to keep them as this assault by big industry will surely raise its ugly head again.

Our resolution will be voted on NEXT TUESDAY, Nov. 24th at 7pm during the next Board of Supervisors meeting and NOT in January like they said on the 10th. It is imperative that we come out to this meeting in strong support of our resolution! The Washington Co. Ag Committee is trying to have ours rejected in favor of one they want passed.

The recent issue at the Washington County Board of Supervisor meeting inspired Channel 5 to do a news segment on raw milk and the 3 cow raw milk exemption submitted to the General Assembly. A great piece with some footage of us milking and a small interview.

Goshen Homestead is finally hatching into a reality! Many of you know us as the McIntyre family of Roffey Cattle Company (or more simply the chicken guy). We have been serving you Grassfed Beef and Grass Kickin Chicken for over 7 years at the Abingdon Farmers Market. The time has come in this great adventure we all share that our family is "weaning" from Roffey Cattle Company and beginning a new chapter of our journey. We look forward to this stage in our farming adventure and we hope you will join us.
