    My name is Ed Davis. I live in central Ky, but my farm is in northern Ky. I have two grown sons. One has his B.S degree and one is working on his degree. My loving wife and I both graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in the early 1990's, where we met.
    I had near 27 years experience at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife. Having my degree in wildlife management, but never seeing much at our state owned WMA's, I retired to build my own paradise, and care for relatives who were sick.
    I have spent the majority of last three year's extra time, and money, to dedicate to my family's farm. The Hillfarm has been in our family since just after WWII. My grandfather raised his family, a few apple trees (one still survives), a big garden and various crops and livestock.
    After being inspired by reading Paul Knox's posts on the Iowa whitetail website, and getting sick of losing private grounds to hunt for various reasons, I decided to transform my small family farm, into the place I always wanted to hunt, but had never found.
    With the help of God and only a few tools, we are transforming our land into something special. Only having a pick-up truck, a great Stihl (straight shaft) string trimmer, an old riding mower and a 1970's model, front- tined tiller, we are on our way to the a true hunter's haven.
    What started out as a food plot, has turned into a living memorial, to those who worked this land before me; and, to those who will come after me.
    I have a deep appreciation for how my ancestors used to do things. I still use and restore equipment that are pre-80's. I see no need to throw away something that is well made and can be fixed, for some Chinese/Mexican/Canadian/Tiawnese newer made POS. I guess that makes me a deplorable, then I am guilty as charged. Last thing: The Fake Fake News is the enemy of the people!!!

    Thanks Native, I just made it back from the farm yesterday.
    I have about a dozen fruit trees healed in here in the garden; and, I also have about a dozen and half chiquapins bushes here ready to go. I'm just waiting a week or so, for the ground to thaw, before I return and plant them.
