Autumn Olive Farms is a family based operation in Augusta County. We have a dual focus model with a singular commitment to the health and wellness of the land, animal and the consumer. We raise the beautiful South African Boer Bok as an environmentally sound method to combat the invasive plant species problem while producing one of the finest and healthiest meats in the world right here in the Shenandoah Valley. The combination of the worlds premier, purpose bred and standardized meat goat with the fantastic forage base of invasive species here in the Valley provides a win-win situation for the land, its owner and the consumer.

The girls have arrived...

Introducing the newest arrivals to our farm. These two gorgeous girls arrived this morning. They hopefully will be giving us some Thanksgiving entertainment for our guests in the way of piglets.  

We have not officially named them, but I am thinking of Ethel and Myrtle.  We will have to get to know their personalities a little better and it will have to be a unanimous decision or I won't hear the end of it! 
So far they are liking their new digs. They are investigating with caution though. Notice the bristles on the back!  

Eeny, Meeny, Miny and Mo are quite curious about the new arrivals. Hopefully they will make for one big happy hog family!
