    Does anyone have a contact for Jim Bell, raise his line or have show quality white faced black spanish standards? I lost his contact. I'm looking for good quality birds to start a breed preservation flock and for showing. I have a few hatchery birds and love them! Any help greatly appreciated. I'm located in South Carolina.

    Mostly cattle, probably could have called myself ranchers wife. but we also grow soybeans, wheat, and a little corn. But husband prefers the cattle.

    So mostly garden vegtables and chickens? Do you do a large farmers market? Would be interested in learning more about your chicken tractor (wanting to start pasturing meat chickens next spring ) was that geothermal for a green house?

    Yep I mainly grow tomatoes, okra, squash, and watermelons for market. Our market is very small so I sell a lot through Facebook also. I love the chicken tractor! Anything you would like to know feel free to ask. The flock that's in the tractor I use to weed, till and fertilize my growing beds. I move the whole tractor down a space about every two weeks. This could be done with meat birds just as easily. The hoop is made from 1" PVC and 2x4 wire. The back is nylon netting draped ove 3/4" pvc hoops. The greenhouse does have a geothermal heating/cooling system. It works very well and is not expensive to install. Let me know if would like more pics or info about anything. :)
