What We Believe

Welcome to Vernal Vibe Rise. The animals that live here with us teach us more each day about how they want their lives to be; they all 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 we dedicate our time and energy to provide these animals with everything that they need, they, in turn, offer their best gifts to us.

True perennial sustainability is our keen aim on Vernal Vibe Rise. Our animals enjoy shade and sun, grass and water, and lots of regular attention. The pigs flop down and roll over for belly rubs whenever they see us, and we each often have a trail of chickens, turkeys, ducks, and the like as we travel from pasture to pasture throughout the day.

We choose to avoid artificial chemicals on our land and in our home. We do not use chemical methods to keep the animals free of worms and ticks; instead, we offer them garlic, black walnuts, and food-grade diatomaceous earth, herbs, and other natural options. All supplemental feed is GMO-free and 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. We produce rich compost and manure for use on our pastures and gardens. Thus, the animals feed the plants just as the plants feed the animals.

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

Please consider visiting us at Vernal Vibe Rise in Renick, West Virginia so you can see firsthand the care that we take with our plants, animals, and land.

    Hello! We are currently researching Heritage Breed Hogs. We would like very much to add home raised pork to our homestead located in the Finger Lakes Region of NY. I would be interested to learn about the GOS piglets you have for sale currently. Truth be told, we are looking toward Spring of 2013 for our first purchase. Do you sows farrow in the very early spring? Thank you, Amy Jones and Dan Shipman

      Thank you for your interest, Amy and Dan. We do have GOS piglets available currently, and will have another farrow this fall. We do plan to have GOS and Ossabaw piglets available in early spring (2013) and regularly thereafter. You are welcome to email us (VVR@VernalVibeRise.com) with any questions about the piglets. Enjoy your day!

    Hello, I’m looking for a blue color group boar (GOS) and wondering if you have any for sale. What county are you in as my brother inlaw has a farm in Gilmer county and makes frequent trips. Thanks – Carrie
