The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had this to say about the music of Victory Farm: "... what really makes Victory Farm sing is its stirring and emotionally satisfying score, which features moving love songs, a poignant tribute to the meaning of home and through-sung numbers like 'Hand Over Hand,' in which Valcq's harmonies mesh seamlessly with the advancing story."
"The cast album is in currently in production with an anticipated arrival in our office on Tuesday, December 18th. We are planning a quick turn-around so we can mail them out on Wednesday, December 19th," said Feldman. "With any luck, people should have them in hand in time for Christmas."

The book and lyrics for Victory Farm were conceived and written by Emilie Coulson and Katie Dahl.
