Podcast #59: Film Review and Farm Restoration

Film Review and Farm Restoration

In this week's podcast we devoted our time to review the details of Film 1 for Land & Legacy. This film has been a huge success, but we cover multiple topics within the 13-minute film. Prior to downloading the podcast, be sure to watch Film 1 on our Facebook and Youtube page. See the links at the bottom of this page.  This film will give the visual for the areas we discuss on the podcast this week as we give details on habitat restoration plans to benefit wildlife and cattle!

In detail, we review the stages of an ongoing renovation project at Adam's family farm. We walk you through the process of turning an abandoned pasture back into an oak savannah that will provide more grazing acres for the cattle but still be dynamite bedding/nesting/escape for deer, turkey, and quail that call this 20-acre section home. It's time every acre of this property is managed to provide income through the farming operation as well as habitat for hunting!  In addition, we cover a recent real estate transaction that takes an over-looked 80-acre property and we provide suggestions to improve it for hunting for the landowner to enjoy with his family! Enjoy. Learn. Share! #ForLoveoftheLand
