2011 Heritage Poultry Project

 

We were honored to be the recipients of the 2011 WNC AgOptions Grant Program.  Over the 3 year process, we raised over 500 Buckeye chicks!  We offered these chicks to local farmers.  As of 2014, we donated all the kids to a "younger" couple who shared the same enthusiam to raising this amazing breed of poultry.  This allows us to spend more time working on our gourd art and raising gladiolus flowers! 

A special thank you goes to our dear friend, Jim Adkins, International Center for Poultry, Project Coordinator.  Without his guidance, coaching and teachings, our goal to provide fresh local eggs from humanely raised poultry for ourselves and others in the community would have been minimal at best.  His commitment to assisting us become better poultry farmers has been invaluable

A special thank you goes to the NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission, for providing grant funding to the Western North Carolina farmers.

Finally, a special thank you goes to the WNC AgOptions, NC Cooperative Extension, and Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Program (ASAP),  their extensive training, funding, and mission of building sustainable farming communities in the mountains is significant for us to meeting our goals.
