Socolofsky Farm Visit!

We have been spending a good deal of wintertime thinking about our ranch and how to develop complementary operations to our central yak business. Books by Joel Salatin and the have been in heavy rotation. We have developed a few ideas that we think can be implemented on our ranch but wanted to get out and see some actual farms that are operating successfully in our climate. For our first visit we crashed the farm of Jen and John Socolofsky. They were feeding when we arrived and had just begun seeding in their hoop houses. With the warm winter we've had they were able get some things going early this year. They raise berkshire hogs, icelandic sheep, rabbits, and fresh produce. Their products can be purchased at,, and their website is They are great folks. Check them out!
