My name is Samantha, and I’m a mom, a wife, a teacher, and a homesteader. In suburban Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania we have a small homestead on just under two acres. My husband, two daughters, and dad use our land to grow food, raise laying chickens, and build a life with minimal impact on the earth. Our garden has expanded from a raised bed, to over a third acre of gardens and orchard. When I’m not on the Farm tending to the fruits, veggies, and chickens, I take this passion and share it with high school students in my elective Foods classes.
So, that’s a little bit about me and my family…
But, are you wondering why we are named Green Pig Farm? I thought you might be! No, we don’t have emerald colored piglets parading around the property. Our ideas are simple and easily explained with two words: Green and Pig.
Green represents gardening, our planet, and money. We try our best to provide as much food to our family through gardening – growing vegetables, fruits and herbs. Green also represents our planet and making choices for the betterment of the Earth we live on – recycling, repurposing, and reusing. Finally, Green is representative of money and financial security. We live fully, yet frugally and save money where we can.
Well, how about pig? Pigs represent home cooking and full bellies. These food-loving farm animals are a perfect symbol of family meals, delicious desserts, and shared recipes.
So, if you’re into one, some, or all of these ideas, then come hang with us at Green Pig Farm.
