  I love your motto! Bamboo is so much fun to make crafts with, do make anything out of them?

Thank you for dropping by! We do harvest some of our boo for projects around our homestead. Digging bamboo is a very labor intensive job and we are in our 60's and seldom sell it anymore. This is an exciting season for us as we have about three species shooting right now so every day is like Christmas! ;-)

I love Peafowl and have always wanted to have a pair but too many coyotes and wild dogs in our area to do so. :-(

  Good Morning
That's some large bamboo! Do you harvest and build with it, or sell?

Come visit me, Bentwillow Bunnies & Pittsboro Peafowl.
