Backwoods Beginnings from Pickens, SC
Backwoods Beginnings

Farm Name: Backwoods Beginnings

Year Farm Established: 2003

Years I’ve been farming: 12 years

Animals I raise: Currently we raise pigs and chickens (gold sexlinks, astrolops, americanas, and jersey giants). Some of the birds are used for meat, but the majority of them are used for egg production.

Crops I grow: We grow most of our own food, so there is a pretty wide variety! Some of the things we're growing right now include: carrots, green onions, lettuce, tomatoes(cherry- ,betterboy,beef- master), peppers (bell,bananna), cucumbers, summer squash, zucchini, eggplant, snow peas, beans (bush, pole), red plumbs, pears, apples, blackberries, figs, and some herbs.

Hobbies I enjoy: There are always things to be done around the farm, but nothing brings more fufilment to us than achieving our goals for the property and further improving this beautiful land we've been blessed with. We look forward to adding some more gardens in, starting a small fruit orchard, and possibly trying to raise a different variety of poultry or livestock.

Club/Associations memberships: FFA - and proud of it!! :)

The proudest moment on my farm: This past winter we put in 3 new garden beds. They have been a complete sucess, and have given us the confidence to expand our gardens even more next year!

Pets: Dogs: of all shapes, ages, and breeds!

Farm Motto: He who has a WHY to live can bear with almost any HOW.

  We sheared in the spring of this year and used some of the fiber to wet felt with about 60 kids from our granddaughter's pre-school who visited our farm in June. The kids and their parents really enjoyed the project. Last October we won a second place with our male llama's baby fleece at the Southeastern Fiber Fair. It has been an interesting learning experience.

My turkeys are bronze broadbreasted "meat turkeys"
i plan to start raising a heritage breed soon, perhaps narrangansetts haven't decided on which breed yet,i know that they are to expensive to purchase every year though, the broadbreasted cost me 6.00 dollars each, and i would like to have at least 30-50 birds. Heritage breeds are even more expensive at 10.00 dollars a piece as day old turks.So breeding and incubating seems the only logical path.
