The Virginia Free Citizen’s very first farm visit for our “Life on the Farm” series was to Karen Doyle’s Georgiatown Farm in White Stone, Va. Doyle is a heritage breed livestock farmer who is passionate about providing a sustainable environment for her animals. She does not use any antibiotics, GMOs or any other kind of chemical additive in her products.
VFC reached out to Doyle last week to get an update from her since our visit in April. Doyle has had her hands full this summer, raising new animals. She said one of her ewes gave birth to a ram and an ewe and her Red Wattle Hog gave birth to 11 baby piglets, which are now three weeks old. She now has about 26 Bourbon Red Turkeys (she had 10 when we visited) and she is also raising several Muscovy ducks. More
