Take an intermittent glimpse into life on Twiggity Farm in Roane County WV. We breed Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats under the herd name "Twiggity", make cheese, yogurt and soap from our milk. We also grow a vegetable garden every year.

Pottery, Furniture and a Good Time
As some of you may know, one of our farm enterprises is making and selling rustic furniture. This year I have also branched out into making goat-milk and other handmade soap.
We are fortunate to have a few great sales opportunities throughout the year. One of our favorites is the three-day open house in early November at Hannah's Pottery in Scott Depot, WV. Hannah and Don invite several local artisans to attend their open house which makes for a great time and a lot of really nice Christmas gift possibilities. The weather this year was warm and sunny and many guests took advantage of the beautiful weather to stroll around Hannah's wonderfully inviting eclectic garden.

In addition to Hannahs signature maple-leaf pottery, there was jewelry, vintage Christmas decorations, our furniture and soap, birdhouses, hanging globe lights and enhanced digital photography. Here are a few pictures from this year's event.

We will also be spending the three-day Thanksgiving weekend at the Brass Bell Pottery open house in Lower Falls, a small community along the Coal River near St. Albans, WV. In addition to pottery there is a lot of interesting history about the falls and the mill that was located there. The gallery and studio are located at 3707 Phillips Street in St. Albans, WV. Come on out and spend "shop small Saturday" with us! You'll know you're at the right place if you see this:
