Whistlepig Farms is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Richard Gibbs and Andy Hessey. Richard grew up on a farm in North Carolina and completed another career before returning to work he loves. Andy is an IT professional and also serves as the Farms' webmaster and business manager. Richard and Andy live within sight of beautiful Clinch Mountain in East Tennessee. Their home, which they are gradually remodeling, was built as a 3-room schoolhouse in 1947.
Whistlepig Farms is named for the numerous groundhogs on the property. These little critters sit up and squeak when alarmed--hence the nickname “whistlepigs.” Our Whistlepig logo was designed by our dear and talented friend Trish Johnston.
