Remembering Joan

We are sharing sad news about losing a trusted farm companion, Joan, our beautiful 9-year-old Maremma sheepdog on September 2023. Joan was an active, much-loved member of Richmond GAIA Farm's operations. A dedicated working dog, she watched over our fields, farm animals, and chickens, helping to protect them against unwanted visitors. Joan was a loyal guardian, working tirelessly night and day in every kind of weather. While not all customers would have met Joan when they visited the farm stand, she was there daily, doing her job. Her farm family misses her deeply.
