Today on the Land Show, Rick Bourne a.k.a., the Dove Daddy co-hosted the show with Dave, as he filled in for Johnny B Goode. Jonathan was out of town working with other Land Brokers in Oklahoma.
Our first guest was Mr. Pat Awbrey, the proprietor of one of the oldest feed and seed/Mercantile stores in Alabama, M.L. Awbrey Inc. His family has been running this business from their location in Roanoke, AL since the early 1900s. Their selection is outstanding and the vintage architecture is something to see.
In our next segment, Rick Bourne told us about the upcoming Fort Dale Academy benefit deer hunt in Butler County. This is a tremendous community event for Greenville and the surrounding area in early January every year. The local landowners really make the out-of-town guests feel at home as they host them and guide them in the field. There are a couple of spots available for those who want to participate in this incredible hunt.
We were able to track down Russ Walters for our farmland report in the third segment of our show. Russ told us about the history of Andalusia as it was a timber hub on the edge of the wiregrass, that later transitioned into becoming a farming community. Russ and the South Alabama Southeastern land group team has been selling many fine farms across South Alabama over the last several weeks.
We finished the show, with Ken Peters who owns Dominion Trapping. Ken and his partners have been trapping Coyotes, Raccoons, possums and bobcats for landowners, in order to improve the recruitment rate for fawns and turkey poults. Ken also spotlighted a unique 210 acre timberland parcel In Tallapoosa County, Alabama with significant frontage on Lake Martin that he is offering through Southeastern Land Group. This once in a lifetime property won’t last long and you can check out Ken’s fine listing at selandgroup.com.
