We hunt raccoon, deer, dove, and wild hog on a Saturday. That evening we filled our plates with fried quail hidden by gravy, field peas, tomatoes, squash and onions, mashed potatoes, mustard and turnip greens, cornbread, biscuits, and pecan pie. Everything but the biscuits came from Jackson County.
Rusty and Ricky have lived in Jackson County their entire lives. They live off the land. They don’t gather around white tables in pretty fields to share a feast. They eat on TV tables while drinking Budweisers. This is the other side of what a Locavore looks like.
