Sunday Visit to Sapphyre Farm in Anegada, Virgin Islands

Hello all! Excited to share details from a recent visit to the lovely homestead of Mr. & Mrs. Faulkner in Anegada as they granted us a full tour of Sapphyre Goat Farm & Garden. The lush roadside garden is a site to see! The yard space is overflowing with golden passionfruit, hefty papaya and Nubian goats. We are so thankful for the time spent exploring this outstanding farmstead. Check out videos and pictures from the tour below.

Make sure you reach out directly to order fish, goats or passionfruit via email: sapphyrefarm@gmail.com or contact Mrs. Leona Faulkner for orders.

Guniea corn is harvested and milled right on the farm, but due to the extensive work, this special flour goes for $20 USD for a 1lb bag! It’s definitely a hot commodity here in the Caribbean region!
