Our happy chickens lay healthy eggs!
We are located in the beautiful foothills of the mountains in northern Spartanburg county, upstate South Carolina.
We have a small farm that we like to use to grow vegetables and other foods for our family. We sell the surplus. Chickens and ducks lay a lot of eggs. If we don't sell eggs within a week we take them to our local church food pantry to give back to those in our community that are less fortunate.
We have lived here since 1986 and find our farm is always in constant change and growth. My husband and I have lived our dream together for more than 34 years.
We have raised horses and dogs for show purposes. Many years later we moved past those ventures, as well as following our daughter in her enjoyment of Guinea Pig (Cavy) showing. Poultry showing has become another new past time for me. My first show we only won Best Of Variety with my bantam Mottled Cochin hen but my second show the lovely lady took Best Of Breed, Champion Feather Leg and Reserve Champion in Show! Her daughter did it for me a year later at a different show.
I really started raising chickens because of egg color but have come to love the breeds for many more reasons. Though the eggs still hold a special appeal to me, the individual birds have made me fall in love with them. We have many pets within the flocks.
Please join our adventure into dairy goats, too. In 2015 I started milking a few girls for the wonderful dairy products for our family.
I would like to thank the Hobby Farmers of the Pee Dee for asking me to give a 3 hour presentation on poultry. I enjoyed being with other poultry lovers and was happy to answer any questions they had for me. It was fun and I made many new friends.
There was another one April, 2013 in Florence SC. It was a lot of fun. Thank you for asking me back again!
Skip Wimpressive Dude went over the Rainbow Bridge Jan. 2014 at 28 years old. Wimpy was born here, raised here and lived an easy life on West Knoll Farm. He was first and foremost our beloved pet.
RIP, handsome boy.
