Today is our 1st Anniversary!

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since we started our business!  Our goal at this point was to have 1 bee hive and a few chickens.  We now have 7 hives and 50+ birds with more hatching every day.  And we have our seasoning.  We are so excited to see what this next year holds.  Thank you to all our family and friends for your support!

BIG NEWS!

We are very excited to announce that we have our first product ready to go!  We’ve been working on this product for a while and it’s been one of Kenny’s dreams for years.  Introducing….Kenny’s Original All Purpose Seasoning!  I know several of you have a homemade container of Kenny’s seasoning around.  This is the real deal.  It’s the same exact recipe.  For those of you who haven’t tried it, I know you will love it too.

We picked up our first order on Friday, March 16th.  We are selling the 8 oz containers for $5.00 each.  Our seasoning is a Certified Cajun product made in Louisiana that contains no MSG.  We were blessed to spend this weekend with several of our family members and we proudly shared our first product with them.  Our first official purchase was made by our Bearhead Creek family.  It was a perfect way to kick off this new adventure.

Please let us know if you are interested in buying some of our seasoning.  Unfortunately, we are not shipping the seasoning at this time.  We hope to have all those details worked out soon.  Thank you to everyone for being our taste testers over the years.  We appreciate all of you!

The kids were not very impressed with me asking them to take a picture out in the rain.  Even though I was the only one getting wet.

What’s in a name?

Like most couples, Kenny and I often discussed dreams and ideas for our future.  Most of our future plans involve our property in Fields.  Affectionately known as “Ma’s House” by family and friends, it is our plan to live there one day.  We spend as much time as we can there.  Our conversations about chickens, ducks, goats, rabbits, cows, deer, turkeys, ponds,  gardens, etc. led to the decision to officially start a business.  We wanted all of our products and services to be associated with this business.  We made an appointment to get our paperwork going.

Then came the fun part…coming up with a name for our business.  Sounds like fun, right?  I thought so too.  It was actually difficult.  It was like naming a baby.  We wanted something that had meaning.  Something that encompassed all of our plans.  Something that was easy to say and easy to remember.

We thought about using a family name.  Our family had homesteaded the property a long time ago.  Did we want to name it after that family?  That would have represented the beginning, but did it represent where we were now?  We thought about using our last name.  That would represent the present, but it didn’t feel like it would show our growth and the future of our business.  Going with a family name just wouldn’t work.  There are so many families whose hearts have made an imprint on this land.  There was no way we could show all that love and history by using one family name.

Some of us also refer to this area as “Bearhead” or “Bearhead Creek”.  Bearhead Creek runs near our property.  We decided that the creek was a connection from the past to the future.  We knew that was the name we should use.  So we became “Bearhead Creek Farms”.
