Blood Farm Fire

This is awful news. It's a total loss but they're fully insured. Let's hope they rebuild.

  1. Oh, that's heartbreaking. We just had Blood Farm bacon for breakfast this morning.

    1. Thanks for letting us know Chris. What a loss to the local food scene. And, let's hope they can rebuild.

      I'll keep my ears open for any updates and ask other farmers in that area to let me know what they hear. I'm sure you'll add any updates that come your way.


      1. this is awful, but at least no animals were harmed. with the patriarch being of such advanced age, i hope he decides to rebuild as a legacy.

        1. That is bad news. The area farmers we buy meat from have all depended on Blood Farm to handle processing. I wonder what they will do, at least for now.

            A couple live stock farmers I know are going to be using Black River Produce in Vermont. It' a fairly new plant that has capacity to take on more processing.

          2. Terrible news. The family must be devastated. Hope they rebuild. Every time we go there, I feel a strong sense of community. Can't get that in chain stores. I heard that a fundraiser may be already in the works.
