My blog is called Back To Basics


Chicken Scratch Farm was founded July 1, 2008, in Buchanan, VA.  Family owned and operated by Lex and Ruth Gibson.  Family members, friends and neighbors have been a great help in support and physical labor.

In the beginning we got a few chickens and enjoyed fresh eggs for breakfast.  We became increasingly brave and started getting more and more animals to add to our small farm.

We also added fruit trees, berry bushes, grape vines, and wonderful gardens.  

We hope you will enjoy learning along with us on this Homesteading adventure.

Please check out our recipes, meat processing, and much much more!
