This specific donation request goes towards a Mobile Production Vehicle.

In the event the nonprofits needs are miraculously met through alternative means (like a full on RV or camper donation) funds raised will be attributed to the nonprofits general operating fund.

We’ve currently been looking into an “operating” vintage Airstream. While the nonprofit realizes the maintenance issues with older RV’s can be expensive our boards assessments on production expenses suggest even a fixer upper will ultimately significantly reduce costs allowing our mission to reach further and make a larger impact with each dollar recieved.

As of Posting the nonprofit has raised $1300 towards this project. A minimum of $10,000 is required to find a “doable” vehicle.

The Good Beef

Grass-Fed Beef is growing in demand, but what many consumers may not understand is that all beef is grass-fed and most beef is grain finished. But not at Smithview Farm in Pittsboro, North Carolina. Smithview Farm prides themselves on quality pasture raised angus beef that is not only raised on pasture but finished on pasture. Meet My Neighbor Productions began filming this week on Smithview Farm and is excited to announce this upcoming feature production.

A Bull Goes To Town

Yanasa Ama Ventures, LLC the Meet My Neighbor Productions videographer participated in a documentary on Briles Farm (a previous Meet My Neighbor Feature) where Cyana Briles worked to full fill her dream of training Spartacus her 1850 American Brahman Bull, to ride.

The documentary will feature Exotic Animal Trainer, Terri Lindley from Oklahoma.

Sheepishly Cute

Meet My Neighbor Productions continued filming on Rising Meadow Farm in Liberty, North Carolina this week. The team was able to enjoy the incredibly cute additions to the farm as lambing season comes to an end.

Rising Meadow Farm

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.

“Yeah Farming Is In Trouble” Farmers Butcher Their Own

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.
