Readying the fields for the annual dove hunt

Each fall, Heritage offers a dove hunt on Robert's family's farm in McBee, SC, on the Saturday after Labor Day. While we (Ashley and Anna and the boys) were in McBee today, we checked out the field that has been prepped for the dove hunt. Corn and millet are growing well!

The boys loved running down rows of corn. 

What a beautiful day. We're looking forward to sharing the hunt with you in a couple of months!

Ultimate Landscaping Machines

In an effort to save on fuel and personnel costs, Ashley and Anna recommend that Heritage take a truly green approach to landscaping. 

Please see the picture below, which offers a glimpse at the new prototypes for the ultimate landscaping machines. We'll have to determine what to do with our current equipment and our managers' job tasks may change, but we know this will be better for the environment ultimately.

Ha ha!

Meet Waylon and Ziggy, Ashley and Anna's new Dwarf Nigerian Goats. They had fun the other evening checking out one of the Heritage trucks while Ashley mowed the grass.  They will eventually be used to help keep the brush "mowed" down around the house. You can read more about their farm life on Anna's blog, Okra Hill Farm
