In February, Craig and I were joined by new farm partners, and this is an exciting development for the farm. Eamon Heberlein grew up in Viroqua–I was his Pleasant Ridge teacher, grades 1-4!–and after college at Deep Springs and Yale, he decided he wanted to raise livestock, too, in addition to continuing his academic career in Environmental Studies. His partner, Shizue RocheAdachi also has a degree in Environmental Studies from Yale, where they met. I am so fortunate they have joined us. Already this year, they made maple syrup, brought cattle back to the farm, made lambing season fun and just today their piggies arrived. You’ll be hearing more from them soon!
