Our family of families


Clay and Josie Erskine started Peaceful Belly Farm in 2002. Their love for the earth and a love for good food is why they began farming. Together with their two daughters Daisy and Tilly they tend the land of Vine and Branch Ranch. In 2016, Clay and Josie started Stack Rock Cidery.

As a family they love to travel, hike, camp, try new foods and craft together. Music, theater and art have always been a big part of Josie’s life and she loves to have that energy on the farm through classes, tours and videos. Clay loves problem solving and soil biology and strives to build a regenerative farm. Daisy is an artist that shares her mother’s love for musical theater and animals. Tilly is a born leader with a engineer’s mind. She loves to help on the farm, especially if she gets to ride the tractor. Vine and Branch Ranch is the place the Erskines can put down roots and build their dream family farm.
