I spent a little time “down on the farm” yesterday! I met with Julie of Wildom Farm and she gave me the tour of their property. Their focus is especially on livestock and making the supply chain as short as possible. They also have their own sawmill and are offering campsites to the public. They’re located just across the street from Mountain State Brewing Company at the lake! It’s the sweetest family farm and they’re definitely doing good work!
