The Meet My Neighbor Production team began filming Rising Meadow Farm, a sheep farm in Liberty, North Carolina. Filming began on shearing day with Kevin Ford, a USA Team Sheep Shearer from Massachusetts. On shearing day 3 generations of Rising Meadow Farm came together to clean and harvest wool. Rising Meadow Farm will continue to be filmed throughout the spring.
How to butcher a pig on the farm or homestead. During the COVID 19 Pandemic, Meet My Neighbor Productions participated in this unique opportunity to film a traditional “Hog Kill’n” in North Carolina. It’s not everyday you see neighbors and friends join together to participate in processing a few pigs for meat, however 40 years ago this would have been a regular occurrence. As food security becomes an issue of the present day and meat processing facilities face capacity issues, these long lost traditions may become invaluable for local food security.
One of the unique benefits of Meet My Neighbor Productions is the lasting relationships we build with small farmers over the years.
Briles Farm appeared on Meet My Neighbor in 2020 and invited our co-producer back to create a short film about on farm Hog Butchering. While this short film was not a part of the Meet My Neighbor Productions program, the relationship they formed with our film crew, Yanasa Ama Ventures, made this film possible!
With over 60K views in five days Briles Farm benefited from a significant amount of exposure. We’re super excited to be apart of such an incredible team and foster relationships that promote and educate.
