About Us
Vernal Vibe Rise is a dynamic, lady-run, permaculture farm located in Renick, West Virginia, in northern Greenbrier County. There, Quincy Gray McMichael raises heritage poultry—Dominique laying hens and Cotton Patch Geese—as well as feral guinea fowl within her holistic, beyond-organic pasture rotation system. The mountain land she stewards also supports the growth of a variety of edible perennial plants—vegetables, herbs, berries—as well as fruit and nut trees, and woodland mushrooms. Quincy dedicates her time and energy to provide the animals and plants that live on Vernal Vibe Rise with the balanced diets and healthy environment that allows them to offer their best gifts to you.

When you purchase Vernal Vibe Rise foods, you receive the highest quality—fresh, nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory edibles that not only fill your belly, but promote ongoing health. Quincy uses her own beyond-organic produce, as well as organic foods grown by other local farmers, to prepare both live-fermented and traditional pickled foods (like dilly beans, kimchi, pikliz, and pickled beets). Quincy, who is a Le Cordon Bleu-trained cook, also offers kitchen staples like rich bone broth and brilliant stewed tomatoes, grain-free baked goods and delicious granola (made with only whole-food sweeteners), and many other exciting items such as live-fermented coconut yogurt, herbal popcorn, and dairy-free chocolate pudding.

Minimizing waste has always been a priority on Vernal Vibe Rise, so all packaging is either compostable (paperboard containers, wax bags), recyclable (HDPE #2 plastic bags, only used when necessary), or returnable (glass kombucha and hot sauce bottles, as well as egg cartons, can be returned to Vernal Vibe Rise for sterilization and reuse). Thank you for helping to keep our planet healthy.

Please peruse, Instagram (@vernal_vibe_rise), and Facebook (Vernal Vibe Rise) to witness the care that Quincy takes with the plants, animals, and land she feels so privileged to steward.
Vernal Vibe Rise is dedicated to beyond-organic animal husbandry, including intensive rotational grazing on organically managed pasture, to preserve critically endangered heritage livestock. You can purchase beyond-organic eggs from the Dominique hens, GMO-free Ossabaw Island pork fat and rendered lard, as well as organic perennial edibles, such as rhubarb, peaches, asparagus, herbs, and apples. Vernal Vibe Rise also offers numerous value-added products, including fermented vegetables and kombucha tea, as well as Porcine Cream Moisturizer. Quincy assures her customers of the quality and purity of Vernal Vibe Rise products because the animals and plants that provide these goods have lived their whole lives on her farm, under gentle and constant care.

True perennial sustainability is the keen aim of Vernal Vibe Rise. The animals enjoy shade and sun, grass and water, and lots of regular attention. All feed for the Dominique laying hens is not only GMO-free, but entirely organically grown, as are the pastures on which the poultry live. These commitments mean additional expense and time, but Quincy believes in healthy animals and clean land. She does not use artificial chemicals on the land, nor in the Vernal Vibe Rise kitchen. She does not use chemical methods to keep the livestock free of parasites, instead offering them garlic, kelp, and food-grade diatomaceous earth. Any supplemental feed is carefully chosen with an eye for quality, locality, and true nutrition--and only certified organic grains are selected. Similarly, the perennial fruits and vegetables that grow on Vernal Vibe Rise are never treated with any artificial pesticides or chemicals. Quincy works within the farm's permaculture system to produce rich compost and manure to nourish the pastures and gardens. Thus, the animals feed the plants just as the plants feed the animals.

Quincy believes in the quality of the products that she sells, as the animals and plants that have offered them were planted, born, and raised here on my farm, the foods created in my kitchen. Thank you for your interest in the Vernal Vibe Rise ethics and methods, and for supporting these efforts by purchasing products via Turnrow Appalachian Farm Collective.
