Hi! I'm Jack, Farmer Jim rescued me from an abusive farmer. I now get to spend my life in paradise with some other animals and people. I have some trust issues, but its nothing an apple or some baby carrots can't fix. I gotta get back to being a lazy donkey, but so glad you stopped by. If you could let somebody know i need more hay!
Dukes is my name. I'm 12 years old and just sit and lay around all day. I love chicken. Not to eat, just to look at. I'm too old and slow to catch one anyways. Jack and I don't get along mainly because he is an ass. Ha! No really i dont think he likes me.
In his early childhood, Farmer Jim was raised in rural eastern NC. He spent his summers as a lad on his Uncle's tobacco farm dragging tobacco from the fields to the barns with two large mules. As he grew up, at the age of 7, he finely convinced his uncle to let him drive the tractor. His family moved to central NC where they had a small farm, but he found another love with wood working shop in school. Farmer Jim moved into the city in his young adult life and eventually had a large family of children and a hard working job in the construction industry. When he retired, he purchased a farm, to fill a longing to return to his roots. For him the farm was paradise. So his children named it Paradise Farms. His least favorite middle child, Matthew, moved to the farm with his family in 2015. Matthew spent 20 years in the home construction indurstry mostly as a finish carpenter. They enlarged the wood working shop and began making fine wood works from locally sourced lumber. They craft high quality items that are both beautiful and funtional.
We are the some of the chickens here on the farm. Dukes stop eyeballing us. We run around the farm and lay eggs. we suspect the white chicken above us isn't a chicken, but we are not sure.
We are the ducklings, junior, freckles, and paddles. Why ducks you ask? How much is a duckling? $4.99 and that is why I am here because Matthew saw me and said "I wonder how much a duck is?" I doubt he would have bought us if we were $8.99, but i do love it here at paradise farms!
