In the past two years, I've driven thousands of miles all over the South to acquire the best stock and most diverse genetics I could manage, and to learn about rare breeds management from farmers throughout the region. Below are links to some of the farms I have worked with or purchased from as well as further information related to the farm and it's activities.
